‘Oliver!’ Opens at The Sioux Empire Community Theatre
"Please, Sir, I want some more?"
If you've ever heard someone say that in a British accent, they were quoting Oliver!
Charles Dickens beloved novel is turned into a fun loving musical.
Oliver! opens May 9th and will run for two weeks at The Orpheum Theatre. Performances are at 7 PM Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings. There are also 2 PM matinees on Saturday and Sunday.
Oliver! is the story of a young boy named, Oliver. OIiver is an orphan and after escaping a workhouse he finds solace with a group of scheming kids that make a living in London by being thieves. Oliver gets arrested for a crime he does not commit. However, he is taken in by the victim of the crime, Mr. Brownlow. But the leader of the thieving kids isn't having it and devises a plan. Will Oliver lose his one chance at family?
The cast of 40 is full of very talented kids! I'm always impressed by the talent in our city!
