A musical MP has made his stage debut in a Guiseley production of Oliver!

Mr Andrew was invited by show director Jay Cundall Walker and musical director Cathy Sweet to take part in the opening scene, where he was guided by Mr Bumble to make his entrance as children sang the ‘Food Glorious Food’ anthem.

Oliver! runs at the theatre from Monday February 24 to Saturday March 1.
