Tuts presents “Oliver”
Consider yourself at home in this dramatic take on a classic novel – Oliver!… with a twist.

Discover the story of a runaway orphan who finds himself in the grimly fascinating underbelly of eighteenth-century London. Befriended by the Artful Dodger and his fellow gang of youthful pickpockets, the pure-hearted Oliver is introduced to a witty, gritty world of new friends, formidable foes—and an abundance of merry mischief.

Cunning, comedic, and downright captivating, Oliver! will leave you with your porridge bowl out, begging for more.

Tickets range from $37.75 – $124.50.
