In May 2008, Jodie Prenger, an unknown from Blackpool in Lancashire (NW England), won the coveted role of Nancy and her chance to perform in a West End musical.

Oliver! is staged in the beautiful Theatre Royal Drury Lane, although the theatre is actually in Catherine Street by Covent Garden, and this is where The Best Friend and I went last night. It was magical, especially the young boys playing Oliver and The Artful Dodger.

The show is a true ensemble piece, with no one lead character, as Nancy, Fagin, Bill Sykes and the boys are all essential parts of the story.

See it if you can.
