'Oliver!' Coming to Theatre Siena April 3-5

Award-Winning Musical Closes Out the Season at SHU

Theatre Siena will present the award-winning musical “Oliver!” April 3-5 in Franceour Theatre on the campus of Siena Heights University.


Based on the Charles Dickens classic tale “Oliver Twist,” the musical details the life of thieves and pickpockets in Victorian London. An orphan boy makes his way to London after being thrown out of the workhouse for asking for more food. He is taken in by Fagin and his gang of thieves who earn their living pickpocketing. Oliver finds his wealthy grandfather but is still in danger from the evil Bill Silkes, the murderer and thief who fences Fagin’s stolen goods, and who fears that Oliver will reveal his identity.


The show is directed by SHU Professor of Theatre and Speech Communications Mark DiPietro. Curtain times are at 8 p.m. each evening, with tickets $10 for general admission, $8 for students and seniors.
