Interesting Questions, Facts, and Information
Oliver! - The Musical
a gold locket. 'I robbed her so I did. All she had were round her neck and it were gold.'
Jack Dawkins. Otherwise known as 'The Artful Dodger'.
Bill Sikes. He eventually kills her.
|In the beginning of the play, what are the Workhouse boys singing about always having to eat?||Oliver!--The Musical
Gruel. Although all are variations of the same food, they called it gruel.
Mr. Sowerberry. He buys him to be his "coffin follower".
Fagin. 'I think I better think it out again!'
Situation. Fagin sings it at the end with the Dodger all the way to a new future that could be a miserable one or a carefree one. Who knows? Only Charles Dickens (the man who wrote this book -- yes, it was a book to begin with) knows.
London Bridge. Nancy plans to give Oliver to Brownlow but is still looking for him when Bill arrives. Bill isn't happy, and kills her.
My Name. Bill sings this song when "Oom Pah Pah" ends and he walks into the bar looking for a fight. By then almost everyone has left because of him.
|Charlie is in Fagin's gang and is a good friend of the Artful Dodger. What is his last name?||"Oliver!", the Musical
Bates. Dawkins is the Artful Dodger's last name (his first name is Jack), Smith is not in the play and Brownlow is Oliver's grandfather's last name.
An apple. Dodger nicked an apple for Oliver because Oliver had been walking for a week with little food. That's how they met.
Willow tree. A small growing tree of love is NOT sung about, nor is oak and certainly not a dead, hollow tree. Oliver sings: 'Is it underneath the willow tree that I've been dreaming of?'.
Mr. and Mrs. Sowerberry. They both sang it in the funeral parlour when they were giving Oliver a job as a children's funeral-carriage follower.
