Oliver – Edinburgh Theatre Breaks

Oliver Comes to Edinburgh

Oliver the musical in EdinburghFollowing a hugely successful run at London’s Drury Lane Oliver the Musical came to Edinburgh in May 2012.
My brother-in-law was Jack Wild (Dodger in the film) so this show will always be special – and I know that the millions of people worldwide, who have enjoyed Lionel Bart’s musical both on stage and screen, will agree with me.

Lionel Bart’s exceptional  multi-award winning musical has touched the hearts of all who have seen this fabulous show, and this production is just as memorable as any that have gone before it – and the film.

It is a great show for the whole family to enjoy and the perfect highlight to an Edinburgh Theatre Break

Oliver the Musical  features a superb catalogue of songs including the much loved Food Glorious Food, Consider Yourself, You’ve Got to Pick-a-Pocket or Two, I’d Do Anything, Oom Pah Pah and As Long As He Needs Me.

It is based on the Dickens novel Oliver Twist and tells the tale of the orphan Oliver and all that happens to him as he finds himself on London’s streets. Jack’s 1968 film adaptation, also starring Ron Moody, Mark Lester, Oliver Reed, and Harry Secombe, won 6 Academy Awards including the award for Best Picture.
