November 2014 – Oliver

WBOS Youtheatre performed ‘Oliver’ from Wednesday 5th November to Saturday 8th November 2014


Capture Oliver! – WBOS Youtheatre – LICHFIELD GARRICK It is the delighted audience who are left asking for more as the West Bromwich Operatic Society’s Youtheatre bring down the curtain on this outstanding production of Lionel Bart’s brilliant musical. The youngsters earn a standing ovation, and considerable credit is also due to new producer-choreographer Ben Cole whose love for the theatre began 20 years ago when he played Oliver Twist in the company’s first crack at the show. How youth theatre’s have developed over the past couple of decades, giving young people their first opportunity on stage, and the quality of the principals and support cast in this show is remarkable. Aidan Cutler, making his debut with the company, excels as Fagin, the whiskery old villain leading a band of kiddy crooks, and Mia Richards is a delight as Nancy, girlfriend of the murderous Bill Sykes. She sings As Long as He Needs Me with real emotion. Matt Nicholas creates the menace of Sykes perfectly, and there are fine performances from Will Foggin (Oliver), Joshua Dean (Mr Bumble),Lucy Pritchard (Widow Corney) and Alastair Winning, a real hoot as Mr Sowerberry, the creepy undertaker. Fagin’s gang and the workhouse kids produce boundless enthusiasm, too. Tim Harding is musical director of a sparkling show that ends on Saturday night (Nov 8). VERDICT: ***** PAUL MARSTON Director goes back
