The colorful characters of Charles Dickens' classic "Oliver Twist" come brilliantly to life in Victorian London. This beloved musical tells the tale of the orphan boy who is swept into a band of pickpockets; the Artful Dodger, the menacing Bill Sikes, the kind-hearted Nancy, all led by the wily Fagin. The sensational, Tony award winning, score is full of Lionel Bart's irresistible songs including "Food Glorious Food", "Consider Yourself", "I'd Do Anything", "Oom Pah Pah", "As Long As He Needs Me" and many more. This show truly captures the joys and challenges of youth and will be sure to warm the heart of your entire family.
