Oliver!’s book, music and lyrics are by Lionel Bart. The show is directed by Zoe Bradford and Jordie Saucerman, featuring a professional orchestra under the musical direction of Steve Bass and choreography by Sally Ashton Forrest.

The beloved Charles Dickens novel springs to life in Lionel Bart’s musical that has become an international classic. Follow the young orphan boy Oliver on a wild adventure through Victorian England as he encounters such colorful characters as the cruel undertaker Mr. Sowerberry, the charmingly clever street waif known as the Artful Dodger, the conniving yet charismatic Fagin and his gang of child pickpockets, the sinister Bill Sikes and the warm-hearted Nancy. “Consider yourself at home” with this bigger than life, action-packed, humorous tale of loyalty and ultimately, finding love. A perfect offering for the whole family during the holiday season.

Attending a holiday season performance at The Company Theatre is a treasured South Shore tradition.

The cobblestone streets and backroads of Dickens’ London have been recreated by Designer Ryan Barrow and enhanced with detailed and antique props. Costume Designer Kathryn Ridder supplements Company’s existing vintage wardrobe with her own creations for the cast, who range from age 7 to 80. Equity guest artist Brittany Rolfs appears as Nancy, and the production features a local English bull terrier as the dog Bullseye.

Tickets for Oliver! range from $41 to $43.
