King Edward VI School has moved Charles Dickens’ character Oliver Twist from the 19th century to today’s London.
The Bury St Edmunds school’s production of Lionel Bart’ musical Oliver! puts the focus on homelessness and street children.
More than 60 students, from years seven to 13, form the cast and crew.
They assist the school’s specialist staff in all areas of the production, from directing and choreographing to set, costume and make-up design.
The orchestra is also made up of talented students who rehearsed with the cast for three months
The set uses scaffolding to ‘represent the industrial and seedy side of contemporary London’.
Oliver! runs from December 7 to 10, starting at 7pm in the Lower Hall of King Edward VI School.
Tickets cost £9 for adults, or £7 for concessions, from www.ticketsource.co.uk/kinged
