Breaking all previous records for a season finale musical, OLIVER! closed out our 70th Anniversary Season with calls for “Please sir, we want some more!” What a wonderful cast and crew! Keith Wetzel’s costumes were brilliant, Dave Linfield’s set was absolutely beautiful and the most ambitious on our stage yet, and director Zach Johnson knocked it out of the park once again. Thank you all for ending our season with a real blockbuster. Sold out for the last three weeks of the run, we were able to seat many hopeful, last minute theatre lovers on our wait list at the door, but others…well, once those seats are gone, they’re gone.
