Four of our Yorkies, Kathleen (Gr. 8), Vanessa (Gr. 9) , Laura (Gr.9) and Anna (Gr. 6) are performing this week in the musical “Oliver!”.
These girls are part of a local community musical theatre company for children in Grade 4 through 9, Encore Musical Theatre. These dedicated young people rehearse every week from September through June in order to put on their full-length musical theatre production in June.
This year’s show promises to be entertaining, with a wonderful set and colourful period costumes. Familiar tunes such as “Food Glorious Food” and “Where is Love?” are what make “Oliver!” a favorite of adults and children alike.
If you would like to see the show, it plays this week, Thursday June 7 @ 7pm, Friday June 8 @ 7pm, and Saturday June 9 @ 2pm and 7pm at the Norman Rothstein Theatre at 41st and Oak.
