School Production of Oliver!

The school production of Oliver! by Lionel Bart was performed on 8th & 9th December in The Vandyke Theatre. Dickensian London was brought to life in song, dance and drama, following the story of orphan Oliver played by Year 9 student Amelia Shipley.

Principal characters were joined by a large ensemble who danced and sang brilliantly, bringing each scene alive with energy and believability.  Fionn Kirk played the menacing Bill Sykes, Corinne Hubbold the vulnerable yet feisty Nancy and Jacob Townson took on the role of Fagin.

The performance was full of characterisation with each member of the cast working incredibly hard to bring out every element of the story. The cast became a community who took ownership of the production and were rightly very proud of their achievements.
