R.C. Murphy Junior High School’s musical theater company took to the stage to perform the Broadway hit musical “Oliver!” before packed audiences this March.

The musical followed the life of Oliver Twist, an orphan in England who runs  away from an orphanage headed by the cruel Mr. Bumble and the life of crime he learns about when meeting a new friend named the Artful Dodger. Oliver’s life appears to turn around when a kind and wealthy gentleman rescues him after Oliver is falsely accused of a theft he didn’t commit. 

Throughout the show the talented cast of student-actors and vocalists dazzled audiences with their flawless performance of classic and beloved songs such as “Food, Glorious Food,” and “Where is Love.” In addition to the regularly scheduled evening performances, the students offered a free showing of the musical to area senior citizens and district sixth-graders before opening night.
