Come to Annapolis to be entertained by the Annapolis Shakespeare Company (ASC) and their presentation of Oliver! The Musical in June 2019. Now in their sixth season as a fully-professional theater group, ASC is considered to be the top regional company for Shakespeare and the classics in the state of Maryland.
Based on the classic Charles Dickens novel about an orphan who becomes a thief, this world-renowned musical will move people of all ages with its drama and pathos, as well as entertain with delightful musical numbers.
Adapting Dickens’s Oliver Twist, Lionel Bart wrote the music and lyrics of Oliver! The musical premiered on London’s West End in 1960 and subsequently became a smash hit worldwide. It has had several successful long runs on Broadway, tours, and revivals over the years. In 1963, Bart won the Tony Award for Best Original Score. Directed by Carol Reed, the 1968 film adaptation of the musical won six Academy Awards, including Best Picture.
Before coming aboard ASC, Donald Hicken was an award-winning director who had recently retired from the Baltimore School for the Arts after more than three decades of teaching. There he mentored actors Jada Pinkett Smith, Josh Charles, and Tracie Thoms, as well as Tupac Shakur, the late American rap legend.
ACS’s production of Oliver! The Musical will be performed each Friday, Saturday, and Sunday in May and the first 2 weekends in June. ASC’s 125-seat Main Stage theatre is located on 1804 West Street in Annapolis, Maryland.
