Imagine a lovely relaxing Saturday afternoon in a big sofa or on a bean bag watching Lionel Bart’s Oscar winning ‘Oliver!’ on a huge screen upstairs at the EDT. And if you or your kid have a little more energy, you can learn popcorn recipes with Peter Popples Popcorn before the film!
THE BIGGER PICTURE @ EDT is showing Oliver! on Saturday 16th June at 2pm.
Inspired by Charles Dickens’ novel Oliver Twist, Lionel Bart’s 1961 London and Broadway musical hit glosses over some of Dickens’ more graphic passages and retains a strong subtext to what was essentially light entertainment. For its first half-hour, Carol Reed’s Oscar-winning 1968 film version does a masterful job of telling its story almost exclusively through song and dance.
The supporting cast includes Harry Secombe as the self-righteous Mr. Bumble and Joseph O’Conor as Mr. Brownlow, the man who, through a series of typically Dickensian coincidences, rescues Oliver from the streets.
Oliver! won six Oscars, including Best Picture, Best Director, and a special award for choreographer Onna White.
