The second show in Park Playhouse’s 26th Summer Season will bring to life Charles Dickens’ classic story of Oliver Twist, an orphan in 1830′s Great Britain who leads the life of a pickpocket in London. We’ll present this classic Broadway musical on our stage for the very first time, featuring dozens of our incredible students alongside great professional talent. With some of Broadway’s most beloved songs, this enchanting story is classic musical theatre at its finest. NOTE: To accommodate audiences with children at this special family-oriented adaptation of Oliver, the start-time of our August production has been moved to 7:30pm. Also, please note that Oliver contains some mildly frightening scenes that some parents might find inappropriate for pre-school aged children.
