"Oliver! from Play to Stage" is the current exhibition at the Charles Dickens Museum to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the stage musical opening in London (June 30, 1960). On display are costumes, props, manuscripts and more that brings together for the first time the collections from the museum and the individual archives of Lionel Bart (Oliver! composer) and Cameron Mackintosh (producer of the current London stage version).

The exhibition is on display into 2011 until the museum closes for refurbishment in preparation for the 200th anniversary of Dickens' birth in 2012. The exhibition is included in the admission to the museum. Pictured here are costumes and set model for the stage musical version running at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane.
