Audiences will be screaming for more when Oliver hits the stage at the Weld Theatre in Busselton this coming school holidays.

The West End musical has been directed by Acting Up director Emma Louise Nisbet who said Oliver would be the first musical to be played in Busselton for some time.

“We are all really excited, we are hoping it will be a huge success and sell lots of tickets,” she said.

This is the first production Ms Nisbet has directed for Acting Up since she arrived from Scotland, and has worked with fellow director Estelle Dragstra to produce the play.

“We are having lots of fun with it,” she said.

Oliver will star two sets of casts over 10 productions which will play throughout the two weeks of the July school holidays.

“Each cast will do five performances each,” Ms Nisbet said.

“It has lots of well known songs like Consider Yourself, and Oom-Pah-Pa, there are lots of really funny bits and some that are quite sad.”

Acting Up actress Emily Robinson will play the role of Nancy, her character is a bit of a sad soul who’s story ends in death.

“I am really excited to perform,” she said.

No stranger to the stage, Ms Robinson has previously performed in school productions but this was going to be her first big musical.

“I have done a few pantomimes but this will be my first musical.”
