The Brookside Theatre is looking for talented musical theatre performers to join the cast for their September production, the much loved classic, OLIVER!

Production dates: 11th - 15th September 2019
Venue: Brookside Theatre, Romford

About the show....
The perfect family musical, based on Charles Dickens' classic Oliver Twist, OLIVER! tells the story of the young orphan who wanted 'more'. From the orphanage to the mean streets of London, the ever-optimistic Oliver strives to survive through thick and thin, meeting, along the way, such characters as Nancy, Bill Sykes, the Artful Dodger and of course, Fagin. Dramatic, engagingly powerful and ultimately uplifting, OLIVER! is an unforgettable feel-good story of a remarkable boy looking for a place to call home.
