Northampton School for Boys


Oliver! - An NSB Production 2017

Oliver 2017 thbs

Oliver!, based on the story of Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens, is being performed by students at Northampton School for Boys from Year 9-13 at The Cripps Hall Theatre.

Come along and experience the Victorian times through the script of Lionel Bart and listen to the instantly recognisable and well-loved songs such as:

‘Food Glorious Food’
‘Pick a Pocket’
‘Oom pah pah’
‘I’d Do Anything
‘Who will Buy?’
and ‘It’s a Fine Life’.

It’s definitely a firm family favourite and suitable for all ages with its well-known and loved (or sometimes hated) characters; Oliver, The Artful Dodger, Bumble, Nancy, Fagin and the frightening Bill Sykes plus many more. The stage version is different from the film so if you have only seen the film then you are missing out on some superb songs. Witness the spectacle from the comfort of your seat as we take you on a rollercoaster of laughs alongside sadness and songs with plenty of choreography and characterisation to keep you thoroughly entertained.

A real feel-good musical to brighten up the beginning of spring.
