Follow a young orphan from a dreary workhouse to the streets of Victorian London, where he unwittingly falls in with a gang of pickpockets, in Mesa Encore Theatre's production of Oliver! Based on Charles Dickens' beloved novel Oliver Twist, this boisterous, hilarious and heartbreaking musical features memorable songs like "Food, Glorious Food," "Consider Yourself," "I'd Do Anything," "Where is Love?" and "As Long as He Needs Me," and a story about the search for love, the triumph of right over wrong and the hope for a better world. Oliver! premiered in London's West End in 1960, scored three Tony Awards for its Broadway debut in 1963, and was made into a six-time Academy Award-winning musical film in 1968. Learn More

Written by Larry Coen and David Crane
Set in the 1930s, it tells the story of brothers Benny and Phil, who go to the Arizona desert to work as extras in the Biblical epic film Exeunt Omnes, directed by the mysteriously reclusive D.W. DeWitt. All 3400 extras are supervised by Louise Goldman, who divides them into groups by asking them to count off by four. While Phil’s experience as a “Three” includes relatively pleasant scenes of feasts and parades, brother Benny is a “Four,” meaning he is included in all ten plagues. As things progress and everything begins to fall apart, Phil finds himself behind the cameras as the film’s director, with Benny in a starring role. The two fall in love with Louise, leading to a brother vs. brother rivalry typical of epic movies.
