Oliver! is the musical adaptation of Charles Dickensís classic tale of an orphan who runs away from the orphanage, run by the heartless Mr. Bumble. After running away Oliver hooks up with a group of boys trained to be pickpockets by a con artist, Fagin, where he meets the artful Dodger and Nancy. When Oliver goes on his first pick-pocketing job, he is caught by the police. He soon realizes that neither he nor Nancy is fit for a life of crime. The man that Oliver robbed, Mr. Brownlow, learns of his sad past and brings him into his own home. This heart-warming musical is something that the whole family can enjoy!!
