Oliver is born in a workhouse where he works under the supervision of Widow Corney and Mr. Bumble, the beadle . His greed for wanting ‘more’ leads him to be sold to Sowerberry, the undertaker. Sowerberry’s family does not take to him and he runs away to London where he falls in with Fagin and his band of pickpockets. Oliver is wrongly accused of picking a gentleman’s pocket, actually committed by the Artful Dodger, and is taken into custody. The object of the theft, Mr. Brownlow, takes Oliver into his home after Oliver is cleared. He is recaptured by Nancy and her villainous boyfriend Bill Sykes and returned to Fagin's band. Meanwhile, Oliver’s true parentage is revealed through an unsuccessful blackmail attempt by Corney and Bumble. Nancy later tries to return Oliver to the wealthy .Mr. Brownlow but is murdered by her boyfriend. Bill Sykes pays for his life of crime and Oliver is returned to the Brownlow home.

Workhouse Orphan Roles
PARENTS PLEASE READ!

Children who are cast as workhouse orphans will appear in Act I, Scene 1 and 2 only. They will enter the theatre from the lower level, through the main theatre doors, perform their two songs ("Food, Glorious Food" and "Oliver") and then exit down the main aisle out of the theatre. At that point, parents may take their children home. Assuming that there will be some children who do not leave at that point (and want to stay for the final curtain call), we will have a system set in place to manage them. The children will not be allowed backstage, but rather will be ushered to another part of the Town Hall to be entertained until the show is over. There will be live video monitors, so that children can watch the show in progress. There will also be activities on hand to keep these children entertained for the remainder of the show. Parents of children cast in these roles will be required to put in two evenings of supervision for the group. The goal is to have at least two adults on hand at all times to keep the children entertained and relatively quiet for the show duration.

A contract will be distributed at auditions which is an agreement between the production team, the child, and the parent that the child agrees that misbehavior and missing rehearsals can result in the child being asked to leave the show. This contract will also have the parents contract agreement that they will supervise the ‘orphans’ for two shows.
