The play Oliver has graced Broadway and small theatres alike for over 50 years. It was written by Lionel Bart and was adapted from the classic novel by Charles Dickens.

The story follows Oliver Twist, a poor orphan boy toiling in a workhouse. His life is turned upside-down when he dares ask for more gruel; and he has the adventure of a lifetime filled with thieves, friends, danger, mischief, and, of course, song!

Nelson Waldorf Grade 8 students have been preparing all year for their own production of the musical, which will be shown April 16 and 17 at the Waldorf School gymnasium, at 6:30 p.m. Admission is by donation, and snacks will be served at the intermission.

Bring friends and family, because this play can’t be missed!
