BRATTLEBORO- Celebrating the kick-off of New England Youth Theatre’s 15th year, Stephen Stearns directs the return of “Oliver!”

“Oliver” had its London premiere in 1960. Hot on its heels came the Broadway production in 1963 and movie in 1968. Dickens’ quintessential melodrama of hardship and redemption, with its timeless characters and now Lionel Bart’s sensational score, has become a musical for the ages, having been played in 22 languages around the globe. Its songs include, “Food, Glorious Food,” “Consider Yourself,” “You’ve Got to Pick-a-Pocket or Two,” “I’d Do Anything,” “Oom Pah Pah,” “As Long As He Needs Me,” and many more.

The performances will be Thursdays through Sundays, December 5 to 15; Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 7 pm; Saturdays and Sundays at 2 pm.

Prices for tickets are $15 for adults, $13 for students and seniors. Tickets are available online at www.neyt.org or in person/by phone at the box office on Wednesdays, 12 to 5 pm. The New England Youth Theatre is located at 100 Flat Street, (802) 246-6398.
