CONSIDER Yourself invited to a superb show, as Fishguard Musical Theatre Society brings Lionel Bart’s musical classic, Oliver! to Ysgol Bro Gwaun this week.

The musical opened last night to a sell-out audience and is also showing tonight (Friday, April 13) and tomorrow (Saturday, April 14).

The show promises to be every bit as stunning as the society's previous sell-out shows; Whistle Down the Wind, Magic of the Musicals and Brassed Off.

The 64-strong cast, ranging in age from four to 74, have been practising hard since January and is ready to impress you with some great acting, spot-on singing and gorgeous choreography, thanks to musical director Non Harries, young choreographer Caitlin Howe and director Clare Malone- Hallett.

There is a guest appearance by Goodwick Brass Band while the talented pit band provides the perfect accompaniment to well-loved classics such as Reviewing the Situation; That’s Your Funeral and As Long as he Needs Me.

Ysgol Bro Gwaun's stage has been transformed into Victorian London, complete with London Bridge, Fagin’s den, the Three Cripples pub and, of course, the workhouse.

Stunning staging and costumes, as well as acting that is both humorous and heart-tugging, means the show is a visual as well as a musical feast.

Fishguard Musical Theatre Society has grown in strength and reputation since it was set up by experienced director, Clare in 2016.

The group is a not for profit organisation run on a voluntary basis whose prime objective is to nurture talent and encourage enjoyment in a fun and inclusive atmosphere.

The group has already raised around £10,000 for Theatre Gwaun, profit made from Oliver! will go towards future performances with a portion also going to local causes nominated by the cast.

“This is set to be a great musical,” said Clare.

“Rehearsals have gone from strength to strength and the cast are buzzing with excitement about going live with this wonderful show.

“Our advance ticket sales numbers are looking amazing; we had a full house for opening night which is superb. Thanks to the local community for continuing to support us.”

There are still some tickets available. They cost £8 for adults and £7 for children and groups of ten.
