  1. Very Good Review by Sandy James - Gillespies Primary School - Edinburgh
    Star Rating

    I think Olivia the musical is brilliant and the songs are very good. (Posted on 29/01/2014)

  2. Amazing production for our Summer Workshop! Review by Julia Walton - Theatre4Kids, Surrey
    Star Rating

    We used 'Olivia' for our Summer Workshop and it was brilliant!
    The script and songs were perfectly pitched for our students and they managed to learn and perform the entire show in just one week!
    They loved all of the characters and we had fun identifying all of the references to other musicals.
    I would thoroughly recommend this production to other schools or drama groups looking for a great show to impress parents and enthuse children. (Posted on 25/08/2013)

  3. Great Fun Review by Creative Drama Holiday Camp, London
    Star Rating

    Olivia is very fun to produce. We only have a week to learn it but it's great fun! Can't wait till the show!
    Eliza Doolittle must have a good singing voice and be good at dancing.
    All the flower sellers should be good at cockney accents (except Annie!). (Posted on 15/08/2013)

    Olivia! is such a great play with some fantastic songs and dances. My part is Queenie, one of the Flower Sellers.

  10. Absoloutly brilliant. Review by Lara - Bishopsteignton Primary - Bishopsteignton
    Star Rating

    I am staring as Mrs Murdstone in Olivia at our school, and i really enjoy playing my part.
    We only have two more days and then the next is our real performance.
    I'm so excited. (Posted on 28/06/2012)

  11. Brilliant Review by Hannah, Salisbury Road Primary School, Plymouth
    Star Rating

    I play Queenie in Olivia and our Olivia character is split into 2 parts so two girls play her.
    I've really enjoyed this play so far and love listening to the songs on this website over and over again.
    The cockney accent is surprisingly hard to do.
    My friend who's playing Eliza is really good at the accent though and she loves her solo and is a
    really good singer so she's perfect for the part.
    I cant wait till our first performance.
    I bet i'll get a lot of laughs out of all my jokes about my husband (my old man). (Posted on 23/06/2012)

    The great show " OLIVIA" is a more creative version of "OLIVER"!!!
    Our class are doing "OLIVIA" for our class play, and we are loving every second of it.
    It is so lively!!!! Why not look up some clips of it on youtube to find out more?

  17. Absolutely Fantastic Review by Doug Davidson, St Matthew's Collegiate School, New Zealand
    Star Rating

    This was the show of all shows to put on at our school. We are an all girls school so this was very easy to cast. We played to full houses with rave reviews. This show was so much fun and the students had a ball. Our parents have raved about it ever snce we did it in 2011. I would recommend this show for any school looking for a great show. (Posted on 31/01/2012)

  18. Fantastic performance Review by Sara Ridgway
    Star Rating

    This script looked quite tricky with a few very big roles needing confident singers however the children pulled it off.
    We did it across the school and the orphan parts were perfect for key stage 1.
    Parents loved it and the children are still singing the songs now. (Posted on 24/08/2011)

  19. Great for girl heavy class with talent! Review by Linda F, All Saints Cof E N20, Whetstone, London
    Star Rating

    This show went down an absolute storm. The kids thoroughly enjoyed their involvement whether small or large and put everything into it. We happened to have quite a lot of talented kids in year 6 so it was great that there were so many parts that felt like "leads". (also lucky enough to have a boy that had been in Gilbert and Sullivan shows before.) Able to use year 5 much more than usual as Fagin's gang, opera goers and orphans so everyone felt important - GREAT STUFF!! (Works great with a boy as the Fat Lady!!!) (Posted on 14/07/2011)

  20. Amazing Review by Molly Davies, Rockwell Green Primary School, Wellington

  21. Pure Genius Review by John Lucey, Stagecoach Galway, Ireland
    Star Rating

    We were talking the other day as teachers on how wonderful this show was last year. It's when you really examine children's musicals you see how clever Malcolm Sircom was. He had the talent to manipulate the audience and cast with wonderful pastiche songs, scenes and influences of Lionel Bart, Dickens and other characters who should not be here...but absolutely should..pure genius! The parents at Stagecoach Galway were truly bowled over by what their children did in this show so it's highly recommended. (Posted on 12/06/2011)

    We have just started rehearsing this play and I absolutely LOVE it. I am really enjoying this and love my solo. I am Eliza and Mrs Dilber, so I have to speak with a cockney accent, which is challenging! (Posted on 04/05/2011)

  24. Olivia Review by Stagecoach Galway

    This was a memorable, funny and intelligent musical for children and teenagers which was superbly received by parents. Malcolm Sircom was an exceptional craftsman of musical theatre and we have loved doing two of his shows. Thank you Musicline for the brilliant memories. (Posted on 01/02/2011)

  26. Excellent! Review by Grandmother of a pupil at Enmore Primary School Bridgwater Somerset
    Star Rating

    I have seen many school plays both as a mother and grandmother and this was by far the best of the lot! Enjoyable from beginning to end - tuneful and amusing and brilliantly written. The children thoroughly enjoyed taking part and the audience loved it. Some of us saw it three times! Super Super Super!! (Posted on 17/07/2010)

  27. Absolutely brilliant Review by Parent - Enmore Primary School - Somerset

    This was a wonderful show - it was the best show I have ever seen schoolchildren perform. So cleverly written - so tuneful - an evening ro remember. (Posted on 15/07/2010)

  28. Amazing! Review by Stenton Primary School, Dunbar
    Star Rating

    Our pupil council chose this show to perform last summer. The whole school took part, from the 5 year olds to our 12 year olds who were leaving to go to secondary school. Even though we do a musical every year, this one really challenged them - but every one of them rose to the challenge and performed brilliantly! As the teacher in charge, I loved the music - it's so nice to do a schools musical that sounds like a 'real' musical!
    I'll be buying from this site again, definitely! (Posted on 17/01/2010)

    Olivia is a brilliant play. Our school was the first to perform it; Woods Foundation School in Nottingham, England. I think that even though the main character is Olivia, Elizza Doolittle was the hardest part! Brilliant. (Posted on 08/04/2008)
