Radio Theatre's 'Oliver Twist' Available for Preorder

Focus on the Family really excels with it's production of Adventures in Odyssey. It excels even more when it comes to Radio Theatre. RT used to come out with several dramas a year, but a lack of finances hindered new ones to be released. In fall of 2009, Radio Theatre made a comeback with a dramatization of C.S. Lewis' The Screwtape Letters.

Now, Focus on the Family is gearing up for another release: an audio adaption of Charles Dickens' Oliver Twist. It will be released in November of this year. The package will contain 5 CDs and a special bonus DVD. (Screwtape was released in this fashion.)

Here's the summary for it:

Focus on the Family’s Radio Theatre’s edition of Charles Dickens’ classic story, Oliver Twist. Oliver is born in a workhouse about 70 miles from London, England in the early 1800s. He is brought up at a “child farm” in the country until the parish officials running the child farm decide it’s time for him to start working, and send him back to the workhouse. When Oliver commits the unpardonable offense of asking for more food, the parish officials offer five pounds to anyone who’s willing to take him on as an apprentice. Oliver is sent off with a coffin-maker whose wife mistreats him. Oliver finally runs away to London, where he meets the Artful Dodger and Fagin. Fagin trains kids to be pickpockets, and then sells off what they steal. Oliver goes through many trials and hardships, but finally gets his happy ending.

Recorded in London with an award-winning cast,
Oliver Twist will steal your heart and take you back in time as the characters are brought to life in this audio drama.
