An Oliver Twist to remember
Last Friday, the musical show Oliver Twist ended the Christmas season ‘Nadal Infantil Cultural’ in la Nucia.
The public, full of children, family and friends of the actors, filled ‘L’Auditori d la Mediterrànea de La Nucía’ in anticipation of the children’s musical.
Over 50 young actors and actresses (35 children and 15 adults) transported the audience to 19th Century London recreating the adventures and misadventures of the famous orphan Oliver Twist .
The musical by the Alicante theatre group Taules Teatre was a complete success with the audience dedicating a standing ovation showing their appreciation and admiration of the efforts made by all the actors involved.
Andreas Vidal Lozano, who is only 6 years old played Oliver Twist and played the part perfectly mastering the script and learning his lines despite the fact that he is still learning to read.
José Antonio Pérez Fresco is the director of Taules Teatre and also plays a part this adaptation of the Charles Dickens novel. The music, ambience, wardrobe costumes, decoration and scenery together with the professionalism of the actors who played their parts so well made this production a true success and together with the songs and choreographies the message of loyalty, friendship and camaraderie shone through.
