Lionel Bart’s classic Dickens musical needs no introduction.
A great show to do, and to involve 35 Crediton children … who loved it!
CODS are very grateful to the sponsors of this show ....
Lewis’s, The Crediton Club and Ashgrove Kitchens
Many thanks for your kind invitation to see “Oliver!” and for the warm and generous welcome I received.What an enjoyable evening it was. Having done the show many times and seen a great variety of presentations it was good to see what CODS could do with it. As usual Mike Palmer’s clever designs assisted by atmospheric lighting and most effective costumes, took us back to Dickensian London. There were some interesting and different approaches from the Directors and this certainly maintained my interest.
It was good to hear the score given its full weight by the excellent orchestra – a major plus point.
With so many youngsters in the cast you must have had no problem filling the houses – all very good for the coffers.
We always expect to be challenged when we come to Crediton and this production was no exception. It certainly made us think.
It was great to meet up with so many members afterwards, reminding me what a friendly and generous group you are. It definitely added icing to the cake.
