Oliver Twist by Focus on the Family

Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens

Focus on the Family's Radio Theater


Step out of your world and into the world of Oliver Twist just prior Victorian England. Journey with Oliver from birth, to the orphanage, through the work house, in the mortician's shop, on the road to London, into Fagin's lair and beyond as you listen to Focus on the Family's radio theater presentation. FOTF utilizes an all star cast to present a professional production that will not disappoint you. Along with the radio theater discs, they have included a DVD which shows some behind the scenes of the making of the radio drama along with a short documentary on modern day orphans.

My family and I listened with eagerness after anticipating this production for a while. IN fact we listened to it over a day and a half and pretty much straight through. My children who are 10, 8 & 6 enjoyed it... especially my 10 year old. Everyone's attention was kept eagerly for the next turn in the plot, and our imaginations lent the pictures. Overall I would highly recommend this program for anyone.... young or old and in between. I think you will be able to listen to it over and over again for many a year to come.
