Given the opportunity to consider themselves singing stars, an impressive line-up of local faces jumped at the chance to appear in an online production of Food, Glorious Food from Oliver!

Featured in the video are appearances from the Theatre’s own catering team, top chef Richard Hughes and his Assembly House colleagues, staff from The Waffle House, Kings Coffee Shop, Gnaw and Golden Chips.

Stephen Bumfrey from BBC Radio Norfolk, Tom Kay’s team at Norwich 99.9 FM and the Theatre’s own chief executive Peter Wilson also joined in with lines from the famous song.

The video comes ahead of the much-anticipated arrival of Cameron Mackintosh’s spectacular production of Oliver!, starring Brian Conley as Fagin, which opens in Norwich on July 3.

“Forget the X Factor…the stars of this video have definitely proved the people of Norwich have the food factor,” said John Bultitude, spokesman for Norwich Theatre Royal.
