Ludwig Theatre Arts Lionel Bart's OLIVER! Jr (2024) Square Sized JPEG

Oliver Jr

The Courtyard Hereford will stage Oliver! Jr. this May. From the team at Ludwig Theatre Arts that brought audiences Matilda JR and Les Misérables School Edition, Oliver! Jr. promises to be an unforgettable show for all ages.

Full of classic songs like Consider Yourself, Food Glorious Food, and Oom-Pah-Pah, Oliver! Jr. showcases the talents of Herefordshire’s young performers. Set in Victorian England, the musical follows the story of Oliver Twist, an orphan boy who escapes the workhouse only to be taken in by a gang of child pickpockets. Oliver navigates the streets of London, searching for love, family, and a place to call home.

“We are thrilled to be working with Ludwig Theatre Arts to bring this timeless Dickens tale to life on our stage,” said Ian Archer, The Courtyard Hereford’s Chief Executive. “Oliver! Jr. highlights the power of community and human connection during difficult times. This exceptional cast of local youth will inspire audiences with their passion, skill, and heart.”

Under the direction of Jack Ludwig, Director of Ludwig Theatre Arts, the cast has been hard at work rehearsing musical numbers and scenes since March. The Courtyard Hereford is committed to providing young people with opportunities to develop their talents and gain experience through high-quality performing arts education programs and productions.

Ludwig Theatre Arts Present: Oliver Jr. will be held in The Courtyard Main House on Thursday 30 May to Saturday 1 June at 2pm and 7pm. To book tickets, or for more information contact the Box Office on 01432 340555 or visit
