Coming Up Next on the SCT Main Stage!

Book, Music and Lyrics by Lionel Bart
Directed by Martin Lehman
Music Directed by Paul Kimball
Choreographed by Gianna Landin

The streets of Victorian England come to life in this classic coming-of-age musical. Oliver, a malnourished orphan in a workhouse, becomes the neglected apprentice of an undertaker. Oliver escapes to London and finds acceptance amongst a group of petty thieves and pickpockets led by the elderly Fagin, sinister Bill Sikes, and the kind and loving Nancy. The Tony Award-winning score is filled with familiar songs such as “Consider Yourself,” “Where is Love,” “Food Glorious Food,” and the heartbreaking “As Long as He Needs Me.”

Rated PG for adult themes including domestic violence
