The guys at East Midlands Theatre checked out Curve Leicester’s website today and we are looking forward to probably the most anticipated show on the Leicester theatre scene early this December. Oliver! Curve say:
“We are thrilled to announce Oliver! as our Christmas production for 2015/16.
After escaping the workhouse, young orphan boy Oliver quickly finds himself alone on the bleak streets of London. When he befriends the mischievous Artful Dodger, Oliver is introduced to the art of pickpocketing, but could his new lifestyle lead him to discovering his mysterious past?
Based on Charles Dickens’ classic novel, Oliver! is one of the most successful musicals of all time and has a sensational score that includes such classics as Food Glorious Food, You’ve Got to Pick-a-Pocket or Two, Where Is Love? and I’d Do Anything.
In Curve’s brand new production of Lionel Bart’s multi-award winning musical, director Paul Kerryson will be joined by choreographer Andrew Wright, Musical Director Ben Atkinson and Set Designer Matthew Kinley, to bring you another must-see family favourite.”
