Join young, orphaned Oliver Twist as he navigates London’s underworld of theft and violence, searching for a home, a family, and – most importantly – for love. When Oliver is picked up on the street by a boy named the Artful Dodger, he is welcomed into a gang of child pickpockets led by the conniving, but charismatic, Fagin. When Oliver is accused of a theft he didn’t commit, he is rescued by a kind and wealthy gentleman, much to the dismay of Fagin’s violent sidekick, Bill Sykes. Caught in the middle is the warm-hearted Nancy, who is under Bill’s control, but desperate to help Oliver, leading to tragic results. With spirited, timeless songs like ‘As Long as He Needs Me’, ‘Food, Glorious Food’, and ‘Where is Love’, Oliver! is a musical classic.
