In the mood for more arts and entertainment? The Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette presents “Oliver!” on March 6 and 7 at Sunnyside Intermediate School- Loeb Theatre. Nothing works on the stage like a well-crafted tale, and “OLIVER!” is just such a show. Based on the Dickens novel, it will engage the audience with its pathos and drama, while delighting everyone with its outstanding musical numbers. Food, Glorious Food, I’d Do Anything, Where is Love?, Consider Yourself, As Long As He Needs Me, Who Will Buy and Reviewing the Situation are musical theatre classics. Dickens’ characters are brought to life-perhaps larger than life-with all their facets glowing in this production.
