November 15 to December 15, 2019

SANTA ROSA, CA ( October 23, 2019 ) 6th Street Playhouse—Jared Sakren, Producing Artistic Director—to present  Oliver!  the classic musical based on Charles Dickens’ novel , Oliver Twist,  with book, music, and lyrics by Lionel Bart, directed by Patrick Nims, music directed by Ginger Beavers, and choreographed by Joseph Favalora.

The Tony award-winning musical is widely hailed as a true theatrical masterpiece by actors and audiences alike. Full of familiar and hummable songs including  ‘ Consider Yourself ,’  ‘I’d do Anything,’ ‘Food, Glorious Food’  and the spine-tingling ‘As Long as He Needs Me’ the show is sure to be a crowd pleaser.
