"This is now the second year I have produced Olivia! with pupils aged between 10-18. On both occasions the show was well received by the audience. The script is adaptable to individual circumstances and it is possible to have cast members playing multiple parts. The script is abound with humour, wit and backed up with lyrical and catchy musical numbers. The audience enjoy the references to well-known characters and are engaged fully from beginning to end. Highly recommended!"Ryan Lowe, Tobermory High School, Isle of Mull
"My school is doing this musical and I had auditioned for a chorus part. It is a great musical and my school LOVE it!"Daisy young, Morden primary, England
"This show was a huge success. We did it for the end of Year 6 production and everyone loved it. So many people said that it was the best play at MHSG Year 6. It was really fun getting make up done, sorting out costumes etc. it was so much fun performing and was the best play I have ever done."Alizah, Manchester High School For Girls
"It was the best musical ever because we all loved it. 300 students and 200 parents watched it as the end of year play by year 6."Heygarth Primary School, Eastham
"Our young cast had great fun rehearsing for this show and the funny script kept us adults amused throughout... a great refreshing change to perform something new and fresh !!! lots of surprise appearances along the way.... "Giz Giz Youth Theatre project , Aberdeen
"I'm doing this play at my school - I'm Eliza - and I love it! The flower sellers are guaranteed to make people laugh, and the orphanage scenes in the first half are very Victorian!"Georgia Luckhurst, King's School , Rochester
"I chose this show as we have a wide age and ability range of young people.. what a choice! It's a great vehicle for the experienced and more inexperienced alike. Great catchy songs that everyone found easy to learn and audiences loved. A very clever, witty script that our older ones thoroughly enjoyed having fun with. All our young people had a fantastic rehearsal period and show week with lots of tears when it ended from both cast and audience! Easy to stage and costume using very little scenery and props... so cheap too! VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!"Janet Philbrook, Director Stage Door Youth Theatre, Colne - Lancs
"Performed in this show as part of the Lime Walk Players a few months back. It has a great script, so easy to remember, catchy songs that you will be singing even when the show's over, and needs very little in the way of staging, props, lighting, etc. The audiences were fantastic and on a couple of the evenings, the laughter seemed to be constant. Hardly a chance for them to catch breath between lines. I was proud to be part of this show (as Artful Dodger) and can't wait to see what the Players decide to do for the next show. I'm told it's likely to be by Malcom Sircom again. If so, I can't wait. It's bound to be brilliant! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!"Roy Peach, Lime Walk Players, Oxford
"My class are doing it and we love it! It is funny, musical, smart and very enjoyable! I am playing The Artful Dodger and I love my lines! My school is an all girls' school and we have great girls playing boys. Whoever reads this and is a teacher pick this play! There are really funny characters in this play. Anyway you should get this play for 11-14 year olds. Thanks for reading!"Shelly - Cast Member, Our Lady of Mercy, Dublin, Ireland.
"This was a fantastic show, with a great script and excellent songs. My Year 6 loved it!"Amanda Whiteley, Key Stage 2 Teacher , CSG Junior School.

"Fantastic! Easy to put on with 30 year 7-10 pupils, costumes easy to assemble, dances easy to create - thoroughly enjoyed by all performers and excellent feedback from audience!"Colin Quinton, Performing Arts Director.
"Olivia is an absolutely fantastic show in every way. The music is top drawer stuff (challenging and melodic with carefully constructed lyrics) whilst the script is funny with plenty of opportunities for creative direction. Well done Malcolm."Woods Foundation School, Nottingham.
