Oliver.jpg

Consider yourself at home with Lionel Bart's classic musical based on Charles Dickens' novel, Oliver Twist.

 

The Tony and Olivier Award-winning show is one of the few musicals to win an Academy Award for Best Picture and
is widely hailed as a true theatrical masterpiece by actors and audience members alike.

The streets of Victorian England come to life as Oliver, a malnourished orphan in a workhouse, becomes the neglected apprentice of an undertaker. Oliver escapes to London and finds acceptance amongst a group of petty thieves and pickpockets led by the elderly Fagin. When Oliver is captured for a theft that he did not commit, the benevolent victim, Mr. Brownlow takes him in. Fearing the safety of his hideout, Fagin employs the sinister Bill Sikes and the sympathetic Nancy to kidnap him back, threatening Oliver’s chances of discovering the true love of a family.

Oliver is now ready to hire

Oliver Twist Set Hire

Our Oliver set is a two level, traditional free standing box set.

It is a maximum of 10m wide, which can be reduced to 7.6m wide by removing the outer end flats, these flats are on pin hinges so they can also be re-positioned to mask wings. The total height is 4.1m and the total depth is 2.2m.

The scene is set as a street with a stage left and a stage right practical door. Bread stand and a book case are supplied for the two green shop doors.

Two supplied trucked flats can be placed to cover the shop doors to form the backdrop for the Workhouse. Three fold down tables and six benches are supplied for the Workhouse scene.

The two supplied signs on the above Workhouse flats can be reversed to form the Undertakers shop. A trucked coffin and three coffin lids are also supplied to dress the shop. The signs can be easily removed if you wish to use the flats for Mr. Bumbles Parlor. 

The two flats can be turned around to reveal a large bookcase which gives some opulence for the Brownlow's house.

Tavern for Oliver Twist

The two green shop doors open like traditional doors. By turning the brass knobs the doors will open to reveal the bar/tavern scene

The two above doors can be closed to go back from the tavern to the street scene. If the doors are pulled open without turning the brass knobs it will reveal  Fagin's Den.
