Much-loved Dickens tale hits stage

Oliver, played by Logan McAllister.
Food, glorious food.

the thought that Oliver! will be

Oliver Twist, subtitled The Parish
Boy's Progress, is the second novel
by English author Charles Dickens,
published in 1838. The story is about
an orphan, Oliver Twist, who
endures a miserable existence in a
workhouse and then is placed with
an undertaker. He escapes and
travels to London where he meets
the Artful Dodger, leader of a gang
of juvenile pickpockets. Naively
unaware of their unlawful activities,
Oliver is led to the lair of their
elderly criminal trainer Fagin.
Oliver! is a British musical, with
music and lyrics by Lionel Bart. It
premiered in the West End in 1960,
enjoying a long run, a successful
Broadway production in 1963, and
tours and revivals. It was made into
a musical film in 1968. Major London
revivals played from 1994 till 1998
and again from 2008 till 2011.
The curtain opens on the sinister
interior of the workhouse, with a
bare dining table. Pale-faced
wretches can be seen peering
through the bars of the door at the
back. Widow Corney, who runs the
workhouse, and Mr Bumble, the
parish beadle, enter to serve gruel to
the boys. Alone among them, Oliver
takes the bowl to Bumble and asks,
''Please, Sir, I want some more''.
Bumble is outraged. Oliver must
go, and so he hawks the boy
through the streets of London,
singing Boy For Sale. Oliver is sold to
Mr Sowerberry, the undertaker.
Oliver soon runs away and meets
the Artful Dodger, who takes him to
a hideout to meet Fagin and the
apprentice thieves. Next morning,
Oliver goes with the boys and is
arrested by the police, not for
picking pockets, but simply for
Act Two opens in The Three
Cripples. Fagin's boys tell of Oliver's
arrest by the police, but that, as he
has been found to be innocent, he is
now safe in the house of a kindly,
rich gentleman. Meanwhile, Oliver
has become a well-cared-for little
lad. However, outside the house, he
is captured and returned to Fagin's
den, where he is held captive by the
heartless burglar Bill Sykes.
Bumble and Mrs Corney, now
married, discover that Oliver is the
heir to a rich family and set off to
get him back. Bill Sykes' girlfriend,
Nancy, plans to return Oliver to his
benefactor. Sykes catches Nancy in
the act and in a fit of rage, kills her,
grabs Oliver, and after a chase, is
shot dead. Oliver is restored to his
benefactor who, as it turns out, is his
own grandfather. Fagin, now minus
the boys, home and money, reprises
Reviewing the Situation as the epic
tale comes to its conclusion.
Oliver! is certainly a glorious
reminder of just how life-enhancing
a musical can be.
The cast for the local production,
drawn from throughout North
Canterbury and Christchurch, has
been rehearsing since late 2012 is
now looking forward to presenting
this enlightening tale at Rangiora
High School, East Belt, Rangiora.
Director: Tom Hart.
