The Recreation Commission and GCCC held open auditions to build the cast, ensuring that the show would feature local talent and community members of all ages. 

Oliver! has always been one of my favorite shows,” said GCCC Drama Instructor Phil Hoke. “I’m glad that we have the opportunity to put it on. It’s a fantastic collaboration with children and adults that steal both the show and your heart.  I hope everyone gets a chance to see it.”

Oliver! is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).  All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI (mtishows.com).
