Oliver, The Musical, is a Treasure for all to Enjoy -source, K.J. Radice 3.05.14
I had the opportunity to attend the Prior Lake Players full dress rehearsal for their upcoming play ‘Oliver’. I found the cast to be remarkably talented. Director Kay Dunning ensured that everything was perfect down to the last detail.
The musical, which is set in Victorian London, is based upon the novel ‘Oliver Twist’ by Charles Dickens. It is a dark tale which involves abuse, theft, prostitution, and murder. Oliver Twist, who is played by Nicholas Dekker, is an orphan living in a workhouse. After being reprimanded for asking for a second helping of gruel, he runs away and meets up with a group of young lads trained to be pickpockets by the sinister Mr. Fagin, played by Justin Dekker. Jordan Muschler did a superb job playing the part of the Artful Dodger and had the cockney accent down perfectly. Other memorable characters were the abusive and brutal Bill Sykes played by Emanuel Ardeleanu and Nancy the kind hearted prostitute played by Anna Jungers, who sang beautifully.
The musical Oliver will be performing March 6, 7, 8 and 13, 14 and 15 at 7:00 p.m. and March 9 and 16 at 2:00 p.m. All performances will be at Twin Oaks Middle School (15860 Fish Point Road SE, Prior Lake). Tickets are $14 for adults, $12 for seniors and students, and $8 for children 12 and under. Tickets can be purchased in advance at www.plplayers.org and will also be available at the door.
