Two researchers writing an affectionate critical article on "The Oliver! phenomenon," for a book to be published in celebration of the Dickens Bicentenary, would love to hear comments on school (and other) productions. Key topics are: Oliver! off stage; Oliver! and small children; casting Oliver!; Oliver! fashions; and opinions about why kids are so attracted to performing in Oliver!. Comments will be kept anonymous or credited, as you prefer. Write here or e-mail to Carrie Sickmann: email@example.com.
