Follow young orphan Oliver from a dreary workhouse to the streets of Victorian London, where he unwittingly falls in with a gang of pickpockets, in Oliver! Based on Charles Dickens' beloved novel Oliver Twist, this boisterous musical features memorable songs like "Food, Glorious Food," "Consider Yourself," "Where Is Love?" and "As Long as He Needs Me," and timeless themes, including 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 Oscar-winning musical film in 1968. This musical theater classic might leave you saying, "Please, sir, I want some more." Learn More

I think the premise of the musical was great but there were just too many dragged out parts in it. One number didn't even really make sense. I think it had too much "filler" time vs substance. Again, "it was ok" but nothing like other musicals. I am glad I went but would never want to go and see this musical again.
This Faustian tale will feature a line-up of power hitters from Seattle and Broadway including Hugh Hastings as aging baseball enthusiast Joe Boyd, Christopher Charles Wood as Young Joe Hardy, Patti Cohenour as the baseball widow Meg Boyd, Hans Altwies as Mr. Applegate (the Devil in disguise), and Chryssie Whitehead as the legendary seductress Lola. Allen Fitzpatrick and Nancy Anderson join the roster as Coach Benny Van Buren and Gloria Thorpe, ace reporter.
Direction is by Mark S. Hoebee (Paper Mill’s Producing Artistic Director), music direction by Ben Whiteley, and choreography by Denis Michael Jones.
