Bringing Charles Dickens’ beloved novel to life, Lionel Bart’s Oliver! takes audiences on a wild adventure through Victorian England.  Without even leaving New Hampshire!

Oliver! comes to town September 15 through October 1 and AARP members and their guests receive a $10 per Adult ticket discount.  The discounted performances will be held at The Palace Theatre, 80 Hanover Street in downtown Manchester.  Performances will be held at 2:00 pm and 7:30 pm.

Join young, orphaned Oliver Twist as he navigates London’s underworld of theft and violence, searching for a home, a family, and love. When Oliver is picked up on the street by a boy named the Artful Dodger, he is welcomed into a gang of child pickpockets led by the conniving, but charismatic, Fagin.

When Oliver is falsely accused of a theft he didn’t commit, he is rescued by a kind and wealthy gentleman, to the dismay of Fagin’s violent sidekick, Bill Sykes. Caught in the middle is the warm-hearted Nancy, who is trapped under Bill’s thumb, but desperate to help Oliver, with tragic results.

AARP members and their guests can purchase discounted Adult tickets online at www.palacetheatretickets.org or by calling 603 668 5588.  Tickets can also be purchased at the box office.  To receive the $10 per Adult ticket discount, use the code ACTIVE.

Don’t miss this musical classic with spirited, timeless songs like As Long as He Needs Me;   Food, Glorious Food; and Where is Love.
