Experience the high-spirited adventures of Oliver Twist in this Oscar-winning musical adaptation of Charles Dickens’ classic tale! Young Oliver is an orphan who escapes the cheerless life of the workhouse and takes to the streets of 19th-Century London. He’s immediately taken in by a group of boys trained to be pickpockets, led by The Artful Dodger and masterminded by the criminal Fagin. Through his education in the fine points of pick-pocketing, Oliver makes away with an unexpected treasure… a home and a family of his own. Set to a heartfelt score that includes such favourites as “Consider Yourself,” “Where Is Love?” and “As Long As He Needs Me,” OLIVER! leads us on a journey in search of love, belonging and honour among thieves. Winner of six Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Score, OLIVER! will steal your heart!
