This year’s show was chosen by Jess Wildman, who is making her directional debut with the CAT group.

Oliver tells the story of young, orphaned Oliver Twist as he navigates the London’s underworld of theft and violence, searching for a home, a family, and - most importantly - for love.

The family friendly musical will be performed on Thursday November 30 and Friday December 1 at 7.30pm, on Saturday December 2 at 2.30pm and 7.30pm, and the last performance is on Sunday December 3 at 2.30pm.

Thursday’s performance will be interpreted into British sign language for deaf and hard of hearing audience members who sign.
