Dún Laoghaire Musical and Dramatic Society is delighted to present one of the best loved musicals of all time – Lionel Bart’s Oliver!
Based on the novel “Oliver Twist” by Charles Dickens, it follows the fortunes of young Oliver through Dickensian London and his encounters with well-known characters such as Fagin, Nancy, Bill Sykes and the Artful Dodger. It features many hugely popular numbers such as “Food Glorious Food”, “Consider Yourself”, “You’ve Got to Pick a Pocket or Two”, “I’ll Do Anything”, “Om-Pah-Pah”, “As Long as He Needs Me”, “Reviewing the Situation” and many more.
This is one of the most popular shows of all time and has been delighting audiences since it was first launched in 1960. It will feature regular members of Dun Laoghaire Musical society and the many parts for young rascals and workhouse children will be cast from local schools and stage schools. DMDS is the community musical theatre group for Dun Laoghaire and has been performing in Dun Laoghaire since its foundations in 1960.
Recent choral successes include our event at the North Wales International Choral Festival in November 2016, and the best musical society choir at the AIMS Choral Competition in May 2017. Consider yourself invited!
