Consider yourself part of King's Lynn Players’ big year




It’s The King’s Lynn Players’ 75th anniversary season and an official ticket launch for Oliver!

The Musical by Lionel Bart was held on Lynn’s Tuesday Market Place with key members of the cast promoting the classic show.

Oliver! - The Musical by Lionel Bart is one of the most beloved British musicals of all time and the talented cast will transport you back to Dickensian London to meet the timeless characters of Fagin, Nancy, Bill Sikes, the Artful Dodger and, of course, Oliver – the boy who asks for more!

And, with the classic songs Food Glorious Food, Pick a Pocket or Two, Consider Yourself and the contrasting and haunting As Long As He Needs Me, this is a show not to be missed.

The King’s Lynn Players have been at the forefront of local theatre since 1944 when their first production was a play called The Rotters, by H F Maltby.
