O'Neal Students Perform "Oliver!"

O’Neal students are performing the musical “Oliver!” March 8th and 9th at 7pm in the Hannah Center Theater. Lionel Bart’s musical “Oliver!” is based on the Charles Dickens novel “Oliver Twist”. Tickets are $5. O’Neal students are admitted free. Enjoy a preshow dinner starting at 5pm in the Hannah Center Atrium. 

Oliver!
is a British musical adaptation of Charles Dickens' 1839 novel Oliver Twist with music, lyrics, and a book by composer Lionel Bart. It chronicles the life and struggles of the eponymous orphan boy and his many attempts to find a stable home and ultimately, life. 
 
Along the way, he meets a variety of characters from different backgrounds—some genteel and kind-heart hearted, other exploitative and violent. Particular characters of note are the elegant ruffian the Artful Dodger, the stingy Fagin, the malevolent Bill Sikes, Sikes' complex and strong-willed partner Nancy, and the good-natured Mr. Brownlow. 

Oliver! premiered in the West End of London in 1960 before moving to Broadway in 1962. It was then adopted into the well-known and highly successful 1968 film directed by Carol Reed, which won Best Picture at the Academy Awards. Members of the O'Neal production team include theatrical director Ian Watson, musical director David Lussier, choreographer Amanda Bumgarner, and dramaturg/assistant director, and O'Neal senior, Jenna Burns.
