By Lionel Bart

Directed by Sue Ann Klein

Since being mean to children is frowned upon these days we've come a long way since Charles Dickens' gallery of cruel Victorian authority figures who love to bait an orphan. Experience the high-spirited adventures of Oliver an orphan who escapes the cheerless life of the workhouse and takes to the streets of 19th-Century London. He's immediately taken in by a band of street urchins, headed by the lovable villain, Fagin, his fiendish henchman, Bill Sikes, and his loyal apprentice, The Artful Dodger. Through his education in the fine points of pick-pocketing, Oliver makes away with an unexpected treasure... a home and a family of his own. Set to a heartfelt score that includes such favorites as "Consider Yourself," "Where Is Love?" and "As Long As He Needs Me," Oliver! leads us on a journey in search of love, belonging, and honor among thieves.
