Colchester Community Theatre proudly presents Lionel Bart’s Oliver! through special arrangement with MTI. The streets of Victorian England come to life as Oliver, a malnourished orphan in a workhouse, 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 elderly Fagin. When Oliver is captured for a theft that he did not commit, the benevolent victim, Mr. Brownlow takes him in. Fearing the safety of his hideout, Fagin employs the sinister Bill Sikes and the sympathetic Nancy to kidnap him back, threatening Oliver’s chances of discovering the true love of a family.
Performance dates are Friday February 14 at 7:00 pm, Saturday February 15 at 2:00 pm & 7:00 pm, and Sunday, February 16 at 2:00 pm at Bacon Academy High School Auditorium, 611 Norwich Avenue in Colchester, CT. Ticket prices are $18.00 for Adults and $14.00 for Seniors (65+) and Children (age 12 and under). Preferred seating tickets (a maximum of 60 each performance) are available for $28.00 each. Preferred seating ticketholders will be asked to arrive at least a half hour before performance times as entrance to obtain seats will be allowed before the general audience.
