Tickets for the much anticipated new production of Oliver are now on sale. The new production at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane promises to be even more spectacular than ever before, starring Rowan Atkinson as Fagin, a cast and orchestra of over one hundred and an exciting new Nancy and Oliver that will be cast from the BBC series I’d Do Anything.
The sensational score is full of Lionel Bart’s irresistible songs including Food Glorious Food, Consider Yourself, You’ve Got to Pick-a-Pocket or Two, I’d Do Anything, Oom Pah Pah, As Long As He Needs Me and many more.
The musical is directed by Rupert Goold, based on Sam Mendes’ 1994 staging, along with co-director and choreographer Matthew Bourne. It is designed by Anthony Ward; lighting by Paule Constable and sound is by Paul Groothuis, with orchestrations by William D Brohn and musical supervision by Martin Koch. It is produced by Cameron Mackintosh in association with the Southbrook Group Limited.
The 1994 London Palladium production of “OLIVER!” played 1,366 performances over three years and grossed more than £40 million at the box office breaking the then record for the longest run at that theatre. We currently have tickets available for the new production of Oliver for performances between 29th January 2009 and 22nd September 2009. Tickets are already selling fast and I expect this new production to be a huge success. Be the first to get your tickets so that you won’t have to pick a pocket or two to get in.
