Event Details

The streets of Victorian England come to life as Oliver, a malnourished orphan in a workhouse, becomes the neglected apprentice of an undertaker. Oliver escapes to London and finds acceptance amongst a group of petty thieves and pickpockets led by the elderly Fagin. When Oliver is captured for a theft that he did not commit, the benevolent victim Mr. Brownlow takes him in. Fearing the safety of his hideout, Fagin employs the sinister Bill Sikes and the sympathetic Nancy to kidnap him back, threatening Oliver’s chances of discovering the true love of a family.

This classic musical adaptation of the Dickens story is packed with well-loved songs like Food, Glorious Food, and Consider Yourself. Director Wendy Sielaff calls it “a story for all ages.” She notes, “It reminds us that out of a bad situation some good can come.” In addition, Sielaff says she was honored to direct such a talented cast with so many families.
