Oliver Twist

Charles Dickens

Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens

Our first production was Oliver Twist, the classic tale by Charles Dickens. We at Magic Floor, took over King’s Gardens in Thetford in Norfolk and transformed it into the London streets where this story is set. Following Oliver, an orphan boy’s start to life, from the workhouse to working as an apprentice to him being taken in by Fagen, a common criminal, and his gang.

As this is one of our favourite stories to tell, we just had to take it one step further. In September 2023 we brought to life ‘Oliver Twist – A New Musical‘, the story you know with songs you don’t! This traditional story was portrayed alongside modern, rocky music composed by David Lewington. See highlights from our performance below.

Our Performances:

  • King’s Gardens, Thetford  – August 2020 & May 2021
  • The Carnegie Rooms, Thetford – September 2023
