STAGE Director Otfried Laux received standing ovations for his latest show Oliver Twist at the New Kimrick theatre in Mojacar.
The storyline remains the same with a few twists as some of the male roles were changed and acted by females.
Otfried encourages improvisation, a method which draws out the strengths of his actors and gives confidence to those less experienced.
He added fresh ideas and a new concept to one of the favourite Victorian stories, updating it for the modern stage.
He added an upbeat soundtrack, hip music and language and used a combination of traditional and present day costumes.
This retrospective and modern mix deliberately demonstrated that the evils of society i.e child abuse, gangs and thieving, were as insidious then as they are today.
Otfried has been instrumental in creating a more modern theatre for the Indalo Players, with new lighting, makeup, tiered seating and stage design. It is hoped that the next Otfried production will be another Charles Dickens classic, Christmas Carol, with a few twists and turns.
Information on this will be available soon.
Oliver Twist is scheduled to come back in May primarily for the local schools, although due to demand, tickets will be available to the general public.
