Oliver!

Oliver!

Presented by Spotlight Theatre


Consider yourself at home with Lionel Bart's classic musical based on Charles Dickens' novel, Oliver Twist. The Tony and Olivier Award-winning show is one of the few musicals to win an Academy Award for Best Picture and is widely hailed as a true theatrical masterpiece by actors and audience members alike.


The streets of Victorian England come to life as Oliver, a malnourished orphan in a workhouse, becomes the neglected apprentice of an undertaker. Oliver escapes to London and finds acceptance amongst a group of petty thieves and pickpockets led by the elderly Fagin. When Oliver is captured for a theft that he did not commit, the benevolent victim, Mr. Brownlow takes him in. Fearing the safety of his hideout, Fagin employs the sinister Bill Sikes and the sympathetic Nancy to kidnap him back, threatening Oliver’s chances of discovering the true love of a family.


Oliver! is a musical theatre masterpiece, perfectly showcasing the talents of a large ensemble cast as they bring these classic characters and score to life.

Punk Rock

Punk Rock

Presented by Spotlight Theatre

Punk Rock by Simon Stephens

William Carlisle has the world at his feet but its weight on his shoulders. He is intelligent, articulate and f***ked. In the library of a fee-paying grammar school, William and his fellow Sixth-Formers are preparing for their mock A-Levels while navigating the pressures of teenage life. They are educated and aspirational young people, but step-by-step, the disclocation, disjunction and latent aggression is revealed.


"Everything human beings do finishes up bad in the end. Everything good human beings ever make is built on something monstrous. Nothing lasts. We certainly won't ..."


"Powerful and compelling ... evokes the twilight world of the teenager with scary vividness ..."

- Michael Coveney, Independent


"Superb new play ..." - Charles Spencer, Daily Telegraph


"A remarkable new play."-Michael Billington, The Guardian



Not Suitable for those under 14 years due to explicit content and language



This amateur production of “Punk Rock” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH LTD a Concord Theatricals Company.
