The school supplied the young cast for Lionel Bart’s Oliver. The Corona Academy of Stage Training closed in 1989, following Miss Knight's retirement. Ravenscourt Theatre School was a stage school in London, for children aged 7 to 19 years old. The school was founded in 1989 by Robin Phillips, following the closure of the Corona Stage Academy, and the retirement of its principal, Rona Knight. Robin ran the Corona agency for many years, and most of the traditions of Corona were incorporated into the Ravenscourt Theatre School, including the uniform and the teaching format, which had full academic studies in the morning, and vocational training in the afternoon.
Lionel Bart's 'roaring' rewrite of Dickens gets 23 curtain calls at the New Theatre, June 30 1960. At 29, he had already written hit songs for Tommy Steele and Cliff Richard, and collaborated with theatrical iconoclast Joan Littlewood on a musical called Fings Ain't Wot They Used T'Be. Now he wanted to try something heftier. Finally, Donald Albery, running the New Theatre (later renamed for him), agreed to stage the whole shebang for £15,000. Bart's friend Max Bygraves bought the musical rights and, with Alma Cogan and Lionel Blair, was in the opening-night audience. Oliver! ran for 2,618 performances in London and 774 on Broadway. Bart spent some of the proceeds on a nose job and got on with writing his next musical, a take on more recent British history called Blitz!. But he never had a hit to rival Oliver!. Perhaps it was too special to repeat.

IF HE had written only Oliver!, the composer Lionel Bart would have earned an honoured place in the history of British musicals, but he was far from a one-show wonder. His other work included shows such as Fings Ain't Wot They Used T'Be and Maggie May, plus many pop songs including "Living Doll" (Cliff Richard's first No 1 hit), Tommy Steele's "A Handful of Songs", Anthony Newley's "Do You Mind?" and Matt Monro's "From Russia With Love". Bart's score was kept virtually intact, and the soundtrack album was a best-seller. Columbia, the studio financing the film, had wanted an internationally known star (Peter Sellers) in the lead, but Reed and Bart fought to keep Moody. Their choice of Shirley Bassey to play Nancy was vetoed by the studio, who felt that if Bill Sykes was shown killing a black girl it could offend some audiences. Cameron Mackintosh, who successfully revived Oliver! at the London Palladium in 1994 and gave him a percentage of the profits, said, Of all the people I know in this business who have had ups and downs, Lionel is the least bitter man I have ever come across.
