by Lionel Bart

Director – Heather Strauss

The Sullivan County Dramatic Workshop is excited to announce auditions for its July performances of Lionel Bart’s “ Oliver!”.

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

The streets of Victorian England come to life as 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. When Oliver is captured for a theft that he did not commit, the benevolent victim, Mr. Brownlow, takes him in. Fearing the safety of his hideout, Fagin employs the sinister Bill Sikes and the sympathetic Nancy to kidnap him back, threatening Oliver’s chances of discovering the true love of a family.

Many twists and turns abound as the lively music and dance add excitement to some real drama!
