Next production Poster


TWIST followed the traditional story of young Oliver Twist: from his lowly orphanage at the workhouse, into the house of Fagin and a life of crime, to the eventual discovery of his true lineage. A relatively dark adaptation, TWIST was packed with both moving and uplifting songs and scenes of poignancy and dramatised violence. With an unusual ‘twist’ for good measure.
