Oliver! tells the story of a malnourished orphan (played on rotating nights by Christopher Cummisky and Tarin Askew, both of Warren) in a workhouse, who 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 rogue Fagin (Matthew Grant Winston, Williamstown). When Oliver is captured for a theft that he did not commit, the benevolent victim, Mr. Brownlow (Tom Badowski, Moretown) takes him in. Fearing the safety of his hideout, the sinister Bill Sikes forces his sympathetic girlfriend Nancy (Marie Schmukal, Warren) to kidnap him back, threatening Oliver’s chances of discovering the true love of a family. Parents bringing children are cautioned that the story contains violence and bullying, a part of everyday street life in 1850s London.
