When Oliver's intended mark, Mr. Brownlow, takes pity on the lad and offers him a home, Fagin's henchman Bill Sikes plots to kidnap the boy to keep him from talking. The show will be directed by Chris McCabe with choreography by Kim Rowley. Rehearsals will begin January 11. Show dates are March 17-26, 2017.
