we know about lionel bart's hugely successful adaptation of oliver twist ... and there is a dodgy great expectations (first staged with john mills during the 70's and revived in liverpool in the early '90s ... I am trying to find information about any musicalisation of Copperfield ... if anyone can help with any information at all i'd be very grateful

Maybe you can start from the resources at https://www.ellopos.net/dickens/copper_links.html (Filmography section)

thanks for pointing me there ... i had come here and posted in a hurry at the begining of a new research for a piece of work and didn't take the time to find out the size and resourses of the site ... (some researcher! huh?)

while i was away looking at the links from the page you reccomended i came across something very exciting in a piece of critisism - something that will change the course of my planning enormously... for the better

-----
away now to look for bernard miles' recording of 'a christmas carol' -   we loved it as kids and now it's worn out and we can find every possible recording but that one

Of course I know that these threads are long dead but I'm posting for future readers.
In 1980 (I think, around that time anyway) there was a Broadway musical called simply "Copperfield". There's not a ton of info on the internet because it did REALLY BADLY, only showing around 30 shows total and most of those for critics. It apparently was a poor adaptation that missed the point of the novel.    
Here's the Wikipedia page
and here's the review that gave it the good old Bradley Headstone bashing.
