Long Eaton Operatic Society to stage Oliver!

Long Eaton Operatic Society will bring Victorian London street urchins to Trent College in their upcoming production of Oliver! in October.

Based on Charles Dickens’ gritty novel, which tells the story of the orphaned Oliver and his life with the pickpocket  Fagin, Lionel Bart’s stage musical brings Dickens’ wicked and comic characters to life.

The show’s famous score needs no introduction, and includes Food Glorious Food, Oliver!, Consider Yourself, You’ve Got to Pick a Pocket or Two, I’d Do Anything, Who Will Buy?, As Long As He Needs Me and many more.

The show is on at May Hall, Trent College, October 18-22, at 7.30pm with a Saturday matinee at 2.30pm.

Tickets are £12 stalls and £14 balcony – although there are concessions and special offers. Call the box office on 01332 874352 or go online to http://www.longeatonoperatic.com.

Tickets are also available from Heaps Stationers, 81 High Street, Long Eaton.

The society will be supporting local homeless charity The Canaan Trust during the production.

The trust is based in Long Eaton and provides ‘person-centred’ support to help their homeless clients face the often complex issues which have contributed to their homelessness and rebuild their lives. Please see http://www.canaan-trust.co.uk to learn more. A collection will be held at each show.
