Charles Dickens’ “Oliver Twist” has been a classic for years. From printed editions, to plays, to movies, it has consistently captured hearts and minds. So it was with excitement that I received a DVD in the mail from Focus on the Family, describing their new Radio Theatre production, “Oliver Twist.” The DVD gave a lively, exciting, behind-the-scenes glimpse of how the radio theater put together their production of Dickens’ story. I was privileged to see some of the faces and people behind the voices; watching them laugh, cry, and swell with energy.
I have listened to Focus on the Family Radio Theatre before, and if they stay true to what they have done in the past, this is going to be a superbly done presentation of the story. I plan to obtain a copy, and listen to it with my family. I highly recommend this audio presentation of “Oliver Twist.”
