The production is directed by Jez Turner and Sally Wright. Oliver Twist is played by Matthew Jackson.
Sally Wright, head of drama, said: "It has gone really well so far. The shows have been sold out every night. People have thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
"The students have been very professional, dedicated and worked together extremely well.
"We wanted to play on the darker elements of the story so we have used a lot of back projection to try recreate the atmosphere of Dickensian London.
