This November, Hong Kong Youth Arts Foundation brings to life Charles Dickens’ exhilarating tale of one boy’s survival against the odds.  Escaping from Mr. Bumble’s cruel workhouse with no food, no money and nowhere to live, poor orphan Oliver Twist meets the Artful Dodger, a cheeky head pickpocket of loathsome Mr. Fagin’s pint-sized gang. But just as it seems that Oliver is about to embark on a life of petty criminality, he encounters a kind gentleman who might just hold the key to his past and future… From the moment Oliver utters his classic first words, “Please, sir, I want some more,” this gripping musical will take you on a thrilling journey packed full with Tony® Award-winning tunes including I'd Do Anything, You’ve Got To Pick A Pocket or Two and As Long As He Needs Me. Tickets are available at all URBTIX outlets from 27 October 2014 onwards. Get updates by signing up to our mailing list!
