Audiences were in awe of the masterful portrayal of characters in the musical production of Oliver at The British School of Kuwait’s Shakespeare Theatre which ran for three nights to packed houses. Based on the book by Charles Dickens and adapted from the musical by Lionel Bart, Oliver is a story that everybody recognises. It was brought to life by the magical writing skills of Mr David Allcock and the musical interpretations of Mr Philip Smith. Oliver was played by Callum Smith who portrayed the shy and innocent character with masterful skill. Saeef Alam caught both the criminal meanness and the comedic and tragic uncertanties of Fagin with great dexterity. Amber Loutfi played the role of Nancy and gave an evocative performance singing As Long As He Needs Me.
The show had one of the largest and youngest casts that BSK has put on stage for several years and they all performed with great aplomb, much to the delight of their parents and friends. BSK now looks forward to further productions including Ocean Commotion and the Wizard of Oz.
