Cameron Mackintosh said: “It is 46 years since I appeared in the first national tour of OLIVER! and this show has been close to my heart ever since. Little did I know then that I would one day be this brilliant musical’s producer and co-owner. Every time I produce the show Lionel Bart’s marvellous musical becomes a smash hit all over again, so I’m thrilled to bring you yet another spectacular new version starring Neil Morrissey and Brian Conley.“

Bill Taylor, CEO of Stage Entertainment UK said: “Everybody here at Stage Entertainment is delighted to be working with Cameron and his team on this beloved show.  Both companies have a great history of bringing West End productions to theatres across the UK and to be doing it together on OLIVER! is hugely exciting.  Audiences are in for a spectacular show.”

The sensational score of OLIVER! is full of Lionel Bart’s irresistible songs including “Food Glorious Food”, “Consider Yourself”, “You’ve Got to Pick-a-Pocket or Two”, “I’d Do Anything”, “Oom Pah Pah” and “As Long As He Needs Me”.

OLIVER! recently completed a two year run at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane in London where it opened to rave reviews, sell-out business and the biggest advance sales of all time for a West End show. Last year, OLIVER! celebrated its 50th birthday, having premiered in the West End in 1960.
