An intimate take on a classic


music, lyrics and book by Lionel Bart

conceived and directed by Alan Souza
music direction by Helen Gregory
choreography by Spencer Liff

Now November 29 – December 22, 2012

Christmas Eve in London, 1838. A small group of working-class, wayward souls gather in a tavern to celebrate when a small, unexpected guest prompts a spontaneous telling of the popular Oliver Twist. With traditional music-hall flair, they delve into Charles Dickens’ haunting moral tale as the lines between story and reality blur. Sized perfectly for The Loft Theatre, this reimagining of the classic Tony Award®-winning musical will touch your heart and challenge your spirit. It’s Oliver with a twist, indeed!

Running time: 2 hours, including one intermission





"Brilliantly enhancing the art of storytelling through concept, song and dance, Souza, Liff and Gregory have overseen a must-see showcase."
