Lionel Bart's Oliver

The award-winning musical adaptation of the classic Dickens novel, Oliver! springs to life with some of the most memorable characters and songs ever to grace the stage.

Join young Oliver Twist as he navigates the Victorian London underworld, searching for a home, a family, and – most importantly – for love. Oliver, a malnourished orphan in a workhouse, becomes the neglected apprentice of an undertaker, then escapes to find acceptance amongst a band of pickpockets led by the conniving Fagin. When Oliver is captured for a theft he did not commit, the benevolent victim, Mr. Brownlow, takes him in. Fagin, fearing the safety of his hideout, has Oliver kidnapped, threatening the boy’s chances of discovering the true love of a family. With spirited songs like “Food, Glorious Food,” and “Consider Yourself,Oliver! is widely hailed as a theatrical masterpiece.

LIONEL BART’S OLIVER! is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. www.mtishows.com
