Whitman students to perform ‘Oliver’

The Marcus Whitman Visual and Performing Arts production of “Oliver” will be performed at 7:30 p.m. on March 14th & 15th, and at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, March 16th in the High School auditorium, 4100 Baldwin Road, Rushville. There will be a Senior Citizen performance on the afternoon of March 13th. Tickets are $6.00 for students and Senior Citizens, and $8.00 for Adults. Ticket prices will increase by $1.00 at the door. Reservations are available by calling the high school office at 585-554-4848 (ext. 1436) or (ext. 1310).OLIVER! is Charles Dickens’ touching tale of an orphan boy who runs away from the orphanage and tries to pick a pocket or two for Fagin, but gets caught. As Fagin tries to save him, all Oliver wants to do is go to his Uncle, and live a good life.The show is filled with pathos and drama, but it will engage audiences with its outstanding musical numbers. Food, Glorious Food, I’d Do Anything, Where is Love?, Consider Yourself, As Long As He Needs Me, Who Will Buy and Reviewing the Situation are musical theatre classics. Dickens’ characters are brought to life; perhaps larger than life; with all of their facets glowing in this production.With a cast of 50 students from all four of the Marcus Whitman district schools, this show should not be missed!
