Photos: Backstage with 'Oliver!' Cast as Summer Show Kicks Off at Oster Regent Theatre in Cedar Falls
The Cedar Falls Community Theatre presented the opening performance of "Oliver!" Friday in downtown Cedar Falls.
The opening performance of Lionel Bart's "Oliver! The Musical" brought laughter to Friday night's audience in the Oster Regent Theatre and moved them to think about difficult issues like homelessness, children without guardians and abuse. This musical drama describes the adventures of a young orphan boy named Oliver, and the characters who try to help or harm him along his way to finding a family. Moe than 200 people in the community helped to make the production possible including the directors and production team, cast, crews and musicians. "Oliver!" will show again on June 15, and 16 at 7:30 p.m. and on June 10 and 17 at 2 p.m.
