Oliver!. Music, Lyrics and Book by Lionel Bart. Director Harold Dershimer. Musical Director Catherine Rahm. Choreographer Anna Rubin. Producer Rocky Miller and Victoria Miller. March 16 – April 21, 2012

Consider yourself invited to the Kentwood Players production of Oliver! One of the most beloved British musicals which won several Tony Awards on Broadway, Oliver! vividly brings to life Dickens’ timeless characters with its ever-popular story of the boy who asked for more. After running away from the orphanage run by the heartless Mr. Bumble, Oliver meets the Artful Dodger and is recruited to pick pockets for Fagin. There, Oliver finds a friend in Nancy, but neither she nor the boy are fit for a life of crime. The sensational score is full of Lionel Bart’s irresistible songs including “Food Glorious Food,” “Consider Yourself,” “You’ve Got to Pick-a-Pocket or Two,” “I’d Do Anything,” “Oom Pah Pah,” “As Long As He Needs Me” and many more.
