Rivertown Theaters Wants You To Consider Yourself at Home

with the Endearing, Timeless Musical, “Oliver!”

Largest cast ever on Rivertown Theater’s Mainstage with 62 adult & young performers!

(December 10, 2019 – Kenner LA) -After its premiere in London in 1960 and in New York in 1963, Oliver! Is still a classic and considered one of the finest musical scores in a Broadway show. Rivertown Theaters is proud to present this hit musical to start the year 2020 January 10 – 26 on the Mainstage.

Based on Charles Dickens’ novel, Oliver Twist, the Tony and Oliver Award-winning show is one of the few musicals to win an Academy Award for Best Picture and is widely hailed as a true theatrical masterpiece by actors and audience members alike. Rivertown Theaters is bringing Charles Dickens’ unforgettable characters vividly to life in this lively, heel-kicking classic about an innocent orphan boy thrown into the dark world of double-dealing thieves and con men in 19th century London. Overflowing with jubilant and heartfelt songs like “You’ve Got to Pick a Pocket or Two,” “Consider Yourself,” “I’d Do Anything,” “As Long As He needs Me,” and “Food, Glorious Food,”  the whole family will marvel in a musical feast for the eyes and ears that will have audiences calling out for “More!”.
