Oliver is the story of an orphaned workhouse boy who is sold to an undertaker and makes his
way to London to seek his fortune. There he is taken in by Fagin and his gang of pickpockets.
Oliver is captured for a theft that he did not commit and 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.

the Hereditary Disease Foundation. For each of their production events, they choose one of
the charities close to their hearts, and proceeds from the event go towards a donation for

$1000 to the Hereditary Disease Foundation.
