Info

Theatre in the Park, at Lincolns New Salem State Historic Site, invites the community to attend Lionel Bart's OLIVER!, Book, music and lyrics by Lionel Bart, August 3, 4, 5, 9, 10, 11, 2018 at 8:00 p.m. and directed by Mark Wheeler and sponsored by Mary Blumle.

The streets of Victorian England come to life as Oliver, a malnourished orphan in a workhouse, becomes the neglected apprentice of an undertaker. Oliver escapes to London and finds acceptance amongst a group of petty thieves and pickpockets led by the elderly Fagin. When Oliver is captured for a theft that 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 him back, threatening Oliver's chances of discovering the true love of a family.

"We are taking this classical story to the TIP stage with a Victorian/steampunk spin on it to appeal to a broader audience," said Mark Wheeler.  

Tickets are $15 for adults, $13 for Senior (55+), $12 for children (12 & under).  Please call to reserve your tickets today at 217-632-5440 or go online at theatreinthepark.net.
