Our street-savvy production of the Dickens favourite. Big-hearted joy, feelgood songs, purse-snatchers and dogs, all live from the gutter this Christmas!

A Storyhouse Production
Adapted for the Stage by Alex Clifton


A Relaxed Performance is a modified version of the show, where loud sound effects are reduced, the house lights are kept up, and other adjustments are made to make a more inclusive and calm atmosphere.

Relaxed Performances are open to anyone who would benefit from a relaxed, non-judgemental atmosphere, including (but not only) people with an Autism Spectrum Condition; people with learning difficulties; people with sensory or communication difficulties; parents with young babies; and anyone who feels they would benefit from it.

Audience members are free to move around the auditorium and come and go as they wish, and there will be a Chill Out area nearby for anyone who would like to make use of it.

The cast will introduce themselves ahead of the show so audiences get an idea of who they will be seeing on stage.

Book whatever seats you think will be best for you, and if you want us to make any extra provisions, please let us know.

Thursday 9 December  10.30am

Wednesday 29 December  2pm  (Socially Distanced)

Saturday 15 January  2pm  (Socially Distanced)

A note when you’re booking…
There are socially distanced performances available so you are in control of your own comfort level.

In order to maintain distancing for these performances seats have been held off so that there is ample space around audiences. Please only select a block of seats that matches the number of people attending.



British Sign Language interpreted performances are for anyone who is deaf or hearing impaired who use British Sign Language.

A BSL interpreter will stand at the side of the stage, interpreting the performance live.

Simply select or request the ‘BSL Interpreter View’ option when booking these seats.

Monday 27 December  5pm


Captioned performances have a live transcription of the show’s dialogue and lyrics, as well as a description of any sound effects and music in the play, in English on a screen at the side of the stage.

Captioning is a service for hearing-impaired or deaf people. People for whom English is not their first language can also find captioning beneficial.

Simply select or request the ‘Captioned Screen Best View’ option when booking your seats.

Monday 27 December  5pm


Audio Description is a live commentary of what is taking place on stage and a description of anything visual, whether it be an entrance or action of a character, a set change or a lighting feature.

Audio description is a service for visually-impaired or blind people, who listen to the commentary through headsets, which can be collected on arrival at the theatre.

Although the signal for the headsets works throughout the auditorium, we advise on selecting seats in the Circle, Rows B & C (around seats 1-12). These seats are close to an aisle and on the auditorium closest to the lift, so should offer very good accessibility. Rows A & C are one step up and one step down respectively – Event Stewards will be happy to show you to your seats and help anyone who requires assistance.

Before an Audio Described performance, audience members can attend a Touch Tour, allowing blind and visually impaired people to familiarise themselves with the set and costumes of the production.

Wednesday 5 January  7pm

(Touch Tour 6pm)




All tickets for Oliver Twist! include a £10 donation to Storyhouse (registered charity 1121007) within the price. You pay the same, however the face value of the ticket is £10 lower, meaning that your donation helps us manage the risk of cancellation due to local lockdown or similar Covid related problems. In sharing some of this risk with us, we are able to produce theatre where others cannot, and we thank you for that and for your support as ever.
