Oliver! is coming to town. The IPFW Department of Theatre and Fort Wayne Youth Theatre are bringing the award-winning musical adaptation of Charles Dickens’ classic story about a young orphan who runs away from the orphanage and hooks up with a group of boys trained to be pickpockets by an elderly mentor on the streets of London to Fort Wayne’s Arts United Center. With catchy songs, like Pick a Pocket or Two, Boy for Sale, Where is Love; wonderful dance numbers; and a classic tale with themes that still resonate today, this show is perfect for everyone of all ages. What makes the production of this musical extra-special is the cast – 50 of Fort Wayne’s finest young talent of university, secondary and elementary age students. They will charm and delight you with their takes on the memorable tunes and choreography. I had the chance to take a sneak peek at a video and was amazed by the talented cast, and can’t wait to see the live performance. Oliver! Arts United Center 303 E.
