Watch the video below for a peek into rehearsals for OLIVER!
OLIVER!, Lionel Bart’s glorious, Tony Award-Winning musical adaptation of the classic Dickens tale of 1850’s London in the time of the Industrial Revolution.
An innocent orphan boy escapes the cruel workhouse and joins a gang of roving pick-pocket street urchins who report to the cunning master pick-pocket himself....the wily Fagin, who rules the filthy streets under London Bridge with a slippery hand. Nancy, the beautiful graduate of Fagin’s “Academy,” and her lover, Bill Sykes, an iconic villain in his prime, fight over the boy with awful consequences.
The ingenious and moving score includes such favorites as, “Food, Glorious Food!,” “As Long As He Needs Me,” “Consider Yourself At Home,” and “I’d Do Anything For You!”
Consider Yourself Part of the Family!
