NOVEMBER 2022 - 'Oliver Twisted'

10th - 19th November

Oliver Twisted, written and directed by Larry Waller, creates a very different version of Dickens’ original tale, using a mix of adventure, shock and mirth.

Born into the care of authorities, and finding himself in a Young Offenders Institution, young Oliver Twisted awaits his release and the hope of a new family.  Oliver’s naivety and vulnerability lead to his escape into the real world where, lost and alone, he finds himself drawn into the seedy and dangerous urban environment of the big city.  What will become of this young man? Are those around him friends or foe? Homeless, and exploited by manipulative adults, who can he trust?

The wonderful ensemble cast of adult and child actors will immerse the audience in time; in the Here, Now, There and Then of the realities of life on the street.  Not a musical, and true to the original text of Charles Dickens, this very different adaptation is not to be missed.

Who Are St Jude's Players?

St Jude's Players Inc is a community theatre group consisting of volunteers operating out of a church hall in Brighton, a suburb of Adelaide, South Australia. Although the Players are loosely affiliated with, and the group was formed by, members of St Jude's, today membership is open to everyone who has an interest in quality community theatre.

The Players usually put on three full-length productions a year, and they can include comedies, dramas and musicals. Although the hall is not large (it seats about 180 people), on occasions we can raise the roof! Naturally, occasions for eating and drinking figure prominently throughout the year.
