Oliver! is a British musical, with music and lyrics by Lionel Bart, based upon the novel Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens. Premiering in London's West End in 1960, a Broadway production was mounted in 1963 and an Academy Award-winning film adaptation followed in 1968. The show has been revived on numerous occasions, and is a staple among regional, community and high school theatres.
