On Stage

Oliver Twist
April 10-13 2019

Director: Sandra McNeill

RAPA is delighted to present Charles Dickens' classic tale of an orphan boy, as adapted by Joeleen Bland. This Victorian-era play of misery, mystery and enchantment will move the audience to another time and place... a place where children were to be seen and not heard -- that is until the orphan Oliver, speaks up.

As the story does show some of the dark underbelly of London's 1880's society through thievery and murder, younger audiences may find this disturbing. RAPA recommends it being a 11+ viewing.

adapted by Joellen Bland from the novel by Charles Dickens
