Consider yourself at home with Lionel Bart’s classic musical based on the Charles Dickens novel, Oliver Twist. Oliver! takes audiences on a wild adventure through the streets of Victorian England 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 conniving and charismatic Fagin. When Oliver is captured for a theft that he did not commit, the victim, Mr. Brownlow takes him in. Fearing the safety of his hideout, Fagin plans to kidnap him back, threatening Oliver’s chances of discovering the true love of a family. Join young, orphaned Oliver Twist as he navigates the London’s underworld of theft and violence, searching for a home, a family, and (most importantly) for love.
