Where: Gladwin City Park Amphitheatre
240 S. Cayuga, Gladwin MI 4862


Beloved Musical Classic on the GAFT Stage

 Oliver!, will open July 11 July 14 on the Gladwin City Park Amphitheatre Stage. A wildly entertaining musical that brings Charles Dickens’ timeless characters to life from his novel, the story tells of a poor orphan and his associates scrambling to survive in Old London Towne and begging for “more … please.”

The sensational score includes “Food Glorious Food”, “Consider Yourself”, “As Long as He Needs Me”, and more. This family musical show truly gives meaning to singing for your supper. Memorable characters besides the title character Oliver Twist, played by Drew Hoag, are Fagin (Kevin Allen), the Artful Dodger (Austin Fergusen), and Nancy (Jennifer Fish). The talented cast of over 50+ will grace the stage and share their talents with everyone in this rendition of Oliver!.

One of the great joys in any Dickens novel, is the characters. Oliver Twist is at its very core the story of one little boy’s search for family. Unfortunately he’s impeded at every turn by a veritable rogue’s gallery of supporting players. Watching those comically grotesque characters, a few of which veer off into true viciousness, take on a life of their own in the hands of some of Memphis’ best actors that we have cast is a real treat.

Come join us in JULY for this EPIC Classic Theatre Production of
