In this collaboration with primary and secondary students, Oliver! JR. is a touching show about love, trust, and caring for one another. This spirited junior version of the Golden Age musical introduces a new generation to Oliver Twist, Fagan, the Artful Dodger, Nancy, and other cherished characters.
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.
