Blackrock College and Loreto Abbey Dalkey are proud to present the musical ‘Oliver Twisted’ in the Jubilee Hall from Tuesday 26th to Friday 29th of April. Doors open at 7pm for a 7.30pm kickoff. Written by Charles Dickens, it is a tale set in Victorian London, about a poor orphan who escapes a workhouse only to find himself amidst a gang of young city pickpockets led by the devious crook Fagin. It is a show for all the family, with performances promising to be memorable on every level. Famous sing-along numbers such as ‘Food, Glorious Food’, ‘Consider Yourself’ and ‘You’ve Got to Pick a Pocket or Two’ will feature in each evening’s show.
