Olivia, a Victorian Musical, was performed to parents and friends of pupils attending Bridekirk Dovenby School at The Wave Theatre in Maryport. There were 70 pupils in the performance and every single one of them played their part with confidence.
This brilliant and innovative show traced the steps of Olivia, from downtrodden orphan to star of the stage. On her journey to the bright lights of London, she was befriended by Eliza Doolittle [from "My Fair Lady"] and, after a series of adventures, became a singer in a new Gilbert and Sullivan show, thanks to the unlikely assistance of Fagin and The Artful Dodger.
Rosie Walker played the main part of Olivia with confidence. Both singing and acting were of a high standard and she was supported by Archie Campbell playing Fagan and Lola Cann playing the part of Eliza; helping Olivia to find her mother Annie, played by Beth Zaninetti.
