Reviewing "Oliver Twist"- by Focus on the Family Radio Theater

Focus on the Family's Radio Theater production of the Charles Dickens classic "Oliver Twist" will captivate you with its cinema quality sound and production value from the very start.  Recorded on location in London with an award winning cast,  "Oliver Twist" comes to life in a way that makes you feel as if you have stepped into the book itself.  This audio drama tells the story of a young orphan sent from a child "farm" to begin life in a workhouse. After committing the unpardonable offense of asking for more food, Oliver is sent off to apprentice with a coffin-maker whose wife mistreats him. He runs away to London where he meets the Artful Dodger and Fagin, who trains kids to be pickpockets. Despite his many trials and hardships, he finally gets his happy ending, bringing hope for redemption all around him.

This excellent production is far more than an audio book or a normal radio program.  I would classify it as a cinematic audio experience.  Your entire family will enjoy listening to the story unfold and you will treasure it in your audio collection for years to come.  It comes on 5 CDs with a bonus DVD that includes behind the scenes production footage and the documentary "Modern Day Oliver".  Purchase of this also benefits Focus on the Family's "Wait No More" adoption initiative. 

I received a complimentary copy for reviewing purposes from Tyndale House
