TALENTED actors are considering themselves ready to perform as they take families in Frodsham back in time for a Victorian treat for Christmas.
Following their packed-out performances of David Copperfield this spring, Frodsham Players are getting ready to delight audiences with another of Charles Dickens’s great classics, as they perform the tale of Oliver Twist at Frodsham Community Centre.
The play, which opens this Tuesday, marks the end of the theatre group’s 70th birthday celebrations, by paying homage to the author during his bicentenary year.
Oliver Twist tells the story of an orphan’s journey from the workhouse to the streets of London, where he becomes connected with a gang of child pickpockets and meets the Artful Dodger and Fagin.
It is a story of love, tragedy and a young boy’s struggle to survive in Victorian society, where pickpockets and criminals rule and children run the streets for money.
Oliver Twist runs from Tuesday, November 27, to Saturday, December 1. All shows start at 7.30pm.
There will be no performance on Friday, November 30, due to Frodsham Christmas Festival.
Tickets cost £7 and can be reserved by calling the box office on 01928 732 515 or emailing email@example.com.
