Description:

It's a Fine Life!

Consider yourself at home with Lionel Bart's classic musical based on Charles Dickens' novel, Oliver Twist. The streets of Victorian England come to life as Oliver, an orphan, escapes his workhouse life and heads to London where 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 Tony and Olivier Award-winning show is one of the few musicals to win an Academy Award for Best Picture and is widely hailed as a glorious theatrical masterpiece by actors and audience members alike!

Show Notes:

Welcome to Oliver! Thank you so much to everyone who auditioned this week.  We were so impressed with your work during auditions and callbacks, and are so excited to bring this gorgeous show to life this fall! We are thrilled that we were able to cast everyone who auditioned in this show!

The full cast will be called for our first rehearsal Friday, September 6th, and further schedule information will be available after Labor Day.  Due to the shorter rehearsal time (just 6 weeks), please note that both main characters and ensembles could be called Fridays, Saturdays, and Mondays.  If you are interested in feedback, please wait until after the first weekend of rehearsals to email the directors as they need these two weeks to prepare to get started with this fantastic show.

Thank you again to everyone who auditioned.  You are all so talented, and we cannot wait to get started bringing the story of Oliver Twist to life!
