Like Mike

Local boy and award winning actor Mike Fletcher returns to the stage this June at the Frankston Arts Centre for PLOS Musical Productions (PLOSMP) season of Oliver.

Many will remember Mike for his role playing Patsy the noble Kings assistant in PLOSMP’s production of Monty Python’s Spamalot and his award winning cameo performance as the gaol guard which saw him receive a Victorian Musical Theatre Bruce Award.

This time however, Fletcher plays Fagin in this rendition of Charles Dickens’ famous novel. Fagin is the leader of a group of children whom he teaches to make their livings by pickpocketing and other criminal activities, in exchange for a roof over their heads.

This is once again an exciting opportunity to see Mike enjoying the challenge of bringing to the stage a character with many facets and making a role his very own. He will also be teaming up with Cameron  Sweatman who plays  career criminal Bill Sikes as well as the 22 children that make up Fagin’s gang.

Mike is joined by Fintan McCrave, an 11 year old from Mitcham playing Oliver and a young man making his big stage debut. Last year Fintan played the lead role in his school Blackburn Lakes production of Aladdin and is no doubt  thrilled to have been successful in being offered the chance to take on another role.

Catch Mike and Fintan at the Frankston Arts Centre, Corner Davey and Young Streets, Frankston, June 20- 28. Ticket info at
