The Western Nevada Musical Theatre Company presents Lionel Bart's exuberant Tony Award-winning classic, "Oliver!" weekends, May 10-19 at the Carson City Community Center.
This musical retelling of Charles Dickens' Oliver Twist tells of a child who is sold by a London orphanage (because he asked for more food) and eventually escapes to the streets of London, finding adventure and a loving home.
The production is animated with high-spirited dance numbers and filled with unforgettable tunes, including "Pick-a-pocket," "Where is Love," "Consider Yourself," and "As Long As He Needs Me." Performed by a cast of 50 and accompanied by a professional orchestra, Oliver! is family entertainment at its best.
Starring Patrick Hardy as Fagin, who returns to play the role after multiple standing-ovation performances with the company's 1994 production, the show also features Logan Chapman as Oliver and Brynn Garrett as Nancy. Stephanie Arrigotti produces and directs and Gina Kaskie Davis is the choreographer.
Performances are on Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 2:00 p.m. There is also a 2:00 matinee on Saturday, May 18. Tickets, costing $25 and $28, are available without a service charge online at www.wnmtc.com or by phone at 775-445-4249.
