Preparations for our family production of Oliver Twist created for everyone aged six and over are well under way. With over 19,000 people already coming, take a look at our gallery to get a sneak peek into the rehearsal room.

This new play version of Dickens' classic story follows the adventures of Twist, as he's sold by the workhouse authorities to a funeral director, where bullying prompts him to run away to London; from there he gets mixed up with criminals, has a brush with the law, finds out his real identity (with the help of Nancy, who pays the price at the hands of Bill Sikes - who also comes to a sticky end!), and discovers a family he never knew.

Children can get involved too with our drawing competition. After you see the show, draw a picture of your favourite character for the chance to win a poster signed by the cast, a copy of the book (Penguin Readers), a family ticket to the Charles Dickens Museum where the author once lived (and where he wrote Oliver Twist) and a copy of the (now out of print) Ladybird book, An Adventure in History: Charles Dickens.
