Rehearsals will begin immediately after casting.
Show Information: This faithful adaptation of Charles Dickens’ second novel is an exciting, fast-moving melodrama about the adventures of an orphan redeemed from a life of cruel poverty and crime by an act of unselfish courage. Filled with an atmosphere of mystery, its major characters—Fagin, Bill Sikes, Mr. Bumble, Nancy, and the Artful Dodger—are some of the most theatrically realized characters in all of literature.
Performances: March 7, 8, 13, 14
