The talented youth of Bravo roam the streets of Victorian London to bring to life Lionel Bart's classic musical based on The Charles Dicken's novel, Oliver Twist!
This Tony and Olivier Award-winning show is one of the few musicals to win an Academy Award for Best Picture and is widely hailed as a true theatrical masterpiece by actors and audience members alike.

Oliver escapes to London and finds acceptance amongst a group of young pickpockets led by 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.
With rousing dance numbers Consider Yourself, Oom Pah Pah, Who Will Buy, heatfelt songs Where Is Love, As Long As He Needs Me, and memorable Food Glorious Food, You Gotta Pick a Pocket or Two, Reviewing the Situation...this award winning musical drama is not one to miss!
Performances at Father Ryan Center For the Arts, October 21, 22, & 23.
Audience members are needed to bring a face covering / mask to wear when indoors and during performance. This "easy to use tool" is a measure to help protect the young performers and fellow patrons. Getting to watch the Bravo youth enthusiastically sing, dance, laugh, and smile will be well worth the effort:)! Thank you!
