A delightful musical for the whole family. The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette says it is a “charming show,” featuring Simon Marotte as the “lovable” Oliver, and Warren Kelley delivering a “priceless” performance as Fagin, the leader of the gang of pint-sized pickpockets who take in the orphan Oliver.

One of Shakespeare’s greatest tragedies, the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette called this Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre production, “as close as an Arkansan can get to a seat at the Globe theatre” and described the cast as “perfection down to each and every performer’s facial expression…powerfully played.”
