SYNOPSIS
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.



WELCOME NOTE
To say we are beyond excited to be back on stage is an understatement! The year did not come without its extreme challenges, but we all rose to the occasion and can’t wait to show you what we’ve been working on. Art Education is even more vital during these challenging times: it helps reinforce how important teamwork and community is, it helps develop a variety of social skills, it helps children take risks and gently pushes them outside their comfort zones. We truly hope you have seen a positive change in your children over the course of this year. Our raison d’être at the Academy is to nurture the love of Arts for the next generation, strengthen our students sense of self-worth and to enjoy the countless benefits in expressing themselves through performance.

We want to thank you, the parents, for accommodating our rehearsal schedules and helping your children prepare. We could not have done it without you! We have been working tirelessly all year to bring these shows to you and look forward to enjoying many more entertaining occasions together in the future.

Enjoy the show!
Liana Wiener, Director of the Academy
