 ‘Consider Yourself at Home…’ with CenterStage as they present the classic musical, Oliver!

Warm your heart, your soul and appreciate what it feels like to have a full stomach, with the perfect family musical, “Oliver!,” presented by CenterStage and Physician’s Center for Beauty October 22-November 8.

Based on Charles Dickens’ classic 1837 novel Oliver Twist, “Oliver!” tells the story of an orphan boy who wanted more.  From a dreary orphanage where the gruel is ladled out sparingly to starving, exploited children, to the mean streets of London, the ever-optimistic Oliver struggles to survive.

Along the way, the plucky urchin falls in with a host of iconic Dickensian characters including greedy. child-exploiting  Fagin, the leader of a gang of thieves b2ap3_thumbnail_11942307_10153540495809720_417268125755336856_o.jpgincluding the sadistic Bill Sikes, good-hearted, but girlfriend Nancy, and the resourceful Artful Dodger

Dramatic, engagingly powerful and ultimately uplifting, “Oliver!” is the unforgettable, feel good story of a remarkable boy searching for love and acceptance.

The 1962 original Broadway production won three Tony awards and the popular 1968 film won six Academy Awards, including Best Picture. Lionel Bart’s lush, magical score is full of irresistible songs including “Food Glorious Food,” “Consider Yourself,” “You’ve Got to Pick a Pocket or Two,” “I’d Do Anything,” “As Long As He Needs Me,” “Where Is Love” and many more.

CenterStage’s production will feature a cast of over 45 local actors ranging in age from 8 to 70. The title role of Oliver will be played by Charlie Norman. He will be joined by Riley McNerny as the Artful Dodger, both making their CenterStage debut. Starring in the pivotal role of Fagin will be Michael Drury who CenterStage audiences may remember as Dr. Craven in The Secret Garden, the corrupt Lawyer, Callahan in Legally Blonde or most recently as the Adult Male in Spring Awakening.  Filling out the cast will be Jessica Adamson as Nancy (Mrs. Walker in “Tommy,” Doralee in “9-5 the musical,” and Ado Annie “Oklahoma!”) and Brian Bowles as Bill Sikes (Mark in “RENT,” Scarecrow “The Wizard of Oz” and Little Mary Sunshine “Chicago”).

“Oliver is one of my favorite musicals in the classic genre. Dickens’ characters are complex and interesting and Bart’s score is one of the best.” stated Artistic Director, John R. Leffert.  “I last directed Oliver in 2007 for MTL at the Iroquois Amphitheatre. That production still holds as a favorite of mine.  I look forward to taking a journey with these rich characters again as we bring this show to life at CenterStage.”

CenterStage is also partnering with Yum! Brands Foundation and Dare to Care Food Banks throughout the run of “Oliver!” with a “Food, Glorious Food” Drive. Donations of non-perishable food items will be accepted at all performances to benefit Dare to Care and the Jewish Family and Career Services Food Pantry.
