Oliver! Art Center Theater is proud to announce the cast of its upcoming winter musical production - Lionel Bart's OLIVER!

Based on the classic Charles Dickens novel Oliver Twist, this show will take the stage for eight performances in December - just in time for the Holidays.

Directed by Lynne Atkins, with musical direction by Don Krieger, OLIVER! follows young Oliver Twist (Gavin Malik) from the toils of a workhouse through the tough streets of London, and finally to the safe arms of long lost family. Along the way, he meets a host of exciting, dancing and singing characters!
