Macclesfield Express - - BUSINESS - RHI­AN­NON MCDOWALL

WATCH your wal­lets – Fa­gin and his das­tardly gang are head­ing to town for a new pro­duc­tion of Oliver!

The show, which fea­tures some of the best­known num­bers in mu­si­cal theatre such as ‘As Long as He Needs Me’, ‘Where is Love’, and ‘Con­sider Your­self’, is per­formed by Bolling­ton Light Opera Group (BLOG) from May 12-16.

Sam Tapp, 10, takes the ti­tle role, with Chris Crox­ford, 11, as the Art­ful Dodger.

Fa­gin is played by Richard Comish, the show’s black­hearted vil­lain, Bill Sykes, is played by Craig Har­ris, while the ill-fated Nancy who be­friends Oliver is played by Stephanie Evans.

Tavis Hill and He­len Valen­tine take the roles of Mr Bum­ble and Widow Cor­ney, while John Clarke and Di Gor­don play the un­der­tak­ers, Mr and Mrs Sower­berry.

Other sup­port­ing roles are played by Sarah Bai­ley, Danny Sherratt Emma-Claire Shel­don, An­thony Davies, Martin Ban­croft, Ge­orgie Heron and Luke Buck.

The se­nior cast is com­ple­mented by a tal­ented group of lo­cal young­sters who com­prise the work­house in­mates and the mem­bers of Fa­gin’s gang, and by BLOG’s cho­rus.

Diane McIn­tyre, who is pro­duc­ing the show with Matthew Grat­ton-Cash, said: “This is a show which has re­mained popular with fam­i­lies, thanks to its en­dur­ing tale of good tri­umph­ing over evil and its won­der­ful mu­sic.

“We have been lucky to at­tract such an ex­cel­lent cast, sup­ported by a group of tal­ented and en­thu­si­as­tic young­sters, and we are sure that to­gether they will pro­vide a su­per show for all ages.”

The show will be at Bolling­ton Civic Hall at 7.30pm each night, with a mati­nee on May 16 at 2pm.

Tick­ets are avail­able by ring­ing 01625 431038, or email­ing blog­book­ings@aol.com.
