Synopsis

From Charles Dickens’ beloved novel to the stage, Oliver!, the musical adaptation of Oliver Twist, will take audiences on a wild ride through thievery, violence, and eventually, love. When young orphan Oliver Twist is picked up on the street by a boy named the Artful Dodger, he finds himself surrounded by a gang of child pickpockets led by the conniving Fagin. When Oliver is falsely accused of theft, he is rescued by a kind and wealthy gentleman, to the dismay of Fagin’s violent sidekick Bill Sykes. In the middle is the warm-hearted Nancy, who is under the thumb of Bill but desperate to help Oliver. With memorable, toe-tapping, timeless songs like “As Long as He Needs Me,” “Food, Glorious Food,” and “Where is Love,” Oliver! is a musical classic.
