Actors Playhouse at the Miracle Theatre always mixes it up. From Les Cage Aux Folles to Urinetown, the theater puts on some pretty varied fare. Now theyre taking it old-school with Oliver!, a Tony Award-winning musical about that lovable little scamp Oliver Twist. Stealing hearts as he picks pockets, Oliver could warm even the cockles of that other Dickens character, Ebenezer Scrooge. Directed by Carbonell Award-winning David Arisco and featuring a cast of both Broadway and regional stars, Oliver! looks to be one of this seasons biggies. The scope of this production is enormous, Arisco says. Were working with two Olivers, two Artful Dodgers, two groups of 16 kids, a cast of 22 adults, a crew of ten, and an orchestra of nine. This is truly one of our largest productions to date.
Wednesdays-Sundays, 8 p.m. Starts: Nov. 17. Continues through Dec. 26, 2010
