The Rochester Rep Theatre opens up its 31st season with an intimate re-imaging of the classic musical “Oliver!”.  Lionel Bart’s “Oliver!” is based on Charles Dickens’ popular story of the life of workhouse orphan Oliver Twist and is filled with colorful characters, drama and memorable music.   The cast is made up of 5 adults and 5 kids and this production is directed for the Rep by Ryan Stotts.

The actors are phenomenal.  I especially like the kid who plays "The Artful Dodger".  (Full disclosure, that kid is my 10-year-old son Logan).

Show dates are:  September 5-6, 11-13, 18-20 and 25-27.  Each performance begins at 8pm.   You can find out more about this wonderful musical/drama at or by calling 507-289-1REP.   For ticket information, click here.

The Rochester Rep Theatre is located at 103 Seventh Street NE.
