Oliver - A Musical by Lionel Bart
Burl-Oak Theatre Group is pleased to announce the arrival of Oliver! The Musical, to the Oakville Centre for the Performing Arts Stage in April 2017.
Bringing Charles Dickens’ beloved novel to life, Lionel Bart’s Oliver! takes audiences on a wild adventure through Victorian England. Join young, orphaned Oliver Twist (Cameron Brindle) as he navigates London’s underworld searching for a home, a family, and - most importantly - for love. When Oliver is picked up on the street by a boy nicknamed the Artful Dodger, he is welcomed into a gang of child pickpockets led by the conniving, but charismatic, Fagin. Oliver, falsely accused of a theft he didn’t commit, is rescued by a kind and wealthy gentleman - much to the dismay of the villainous Bill Sykes. Caught in the middle is the warm-hearted Nancy, who is trapped under Bill’s thumb, but desperate to help Oliver. With spirited, timeless songs like “As Long as He Needs Me,” “Food, Glorious Food,” and “Where is Love,” Oliver! is a musical classic and enjoyment for the whole family.
The production of Oliver! The Musical opens April 18 and runs until April 23, with evening performances Tuesday through Saturday and matinees on Saturday and Sunday.
Tickets are $33 each
