The Gold Camp Players at the Historic Homestake Opera House announce their spring musical production of “Oliver”!
The streets of Victorian England come to life as Oliver, a malnourished orphan in a workhouse, becomes the neglected shop boy of an undertaker. Oliver escapes to the streets of London and finds acceptance amongst a group of petty thieves and pickpockets led by the crafty Fagin. When Oliver is captured for a theft 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 Oliver back, threatening his chances of discovering the true love of family. “Oliver”, an English musical with music and lyrics by Lionel Bart, considered a masterpiece, includes a large ensemble cast of over 30 actors. “Oliver” won the Tony Award for best original musical score in 193. Based upon the novel Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens, the show was adapted for film in 1968 and won six Academy Awards, including best picture.
