Synopsis: Join young, orphaned Oliver Twist as he navigates London’s underworld, searching for a home, a family, and – most importantly – for love. When Oliver is picked up on the street by a boy named the Artful Dodger, he is welcomed into a gang of child pickpockets led by the conniving, but charismatic, Fagin. When Oliver is falsely accused of a theft he didn’t commit, he is rescued by a kind and wealthy gentleman, Mr. Brownlow, to the dismay of Fagin’s sidekick, Bill Sykes. Caught in the middle is the warm-hearted Nancy, who is trapped under Bill’s thumb, but desperate to help Oliver, with tragic results.
Encore Players Drama Ministry will present a variety of theatrical performances each year that strive to share with our church congregation and the community at large the message of God’s abiding presence and love for all.
Past performances include:
- Musicals such as The Music Man, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Fiddler on the Roof, and Godspell.
- Dramatic plays such as The Diary of Anne Frank, Love Letters, and Harvey.
- Staged readings such as Twelve Angry Jurors and Oppenheimer.
The Drama Ministry is open to all levels of experience and all ages. If you have an interest in any area of drama, including acting, directing, producing, costuming, technical support (lighting, video, audio), publicity, set design and construction, or prop and stage management, we would love to have you join our community.
