Lionel Bart's classic musical Oliver! is set to run at Washington, D.C.'s Arena Stage from October 30-January 3, 2016. Young actors Jake Heston Miller and Aidan Pritchard will alternate in the title role, with Broadway veterans Jeff McCarthy (The Pirate Queen) as Fagin, Kyle Coffman (The Mystery of Edwin Drood) as Artful Dodger, Ian Lassiter (War Horse) as Bill Sykes, and Paul Vogt (Hairspray) as Mr. Bumble, and Eleasha Gamble (Arena Stage's Oklahoma!) as Nancy.
Molly Smith directs the production in-the-round and infuses a modern edge to Charles Dickens' story of an innocent orphan thrown into the dark world of double-dealing thieves and conmen. The production aims to highlight the disparity between classes and dangerous life on London's streets today.
