While Tasmania is deservedly famous for its diverse and stunning natural beauty, there is increasingly more to see and do away from the mountains and forests as well.
Culturally the island state possesses a burgeoning arts and theatre scene, meaning visitors can truly enjoy a holiday that has a little bit of everything.
There is no better example of this trend than the upcoming run of the classic musical Oliver! Presented by the Launceston Musical Society, the production promises to dazzle audiences over five shows from Wednesday, September 21 to Saturday, September 24.
Right from the opening scene – where the starving orphan boys sing Food Glorious Food – this ever-popular story will unfold with a magnificent combination of singing, dancing, humour and drama.
But of course you want more? The cast of over 100 will also perform the songs Oliver!, I Shall Scream, Boy For Sale, Consider Yourself and many more.
The story might be familiar, but every viewing of Charles Dickens' timeless masterpiece is a unique experience.
The three-hour spectacular will play at The Princess Theatre and tickets cost $39 for adults, $32.50 for concessions and $25 for children under 16. Group tickets can be purchased at the box office.
