Oliver! is a fun and entertaining show sure to delight the whole family this spring. For many Georgetown Globe members it's just as much fun and entertaining to work on as a family! Georgetown Globe Productions' revival of Oliver! boasts a number of families who are sharing in the pleasure and hard work of putting on a show. There are five parents performing onstage alongside their children, three sets of siblings performing together and two of the directors are given the daunting task of teaching their own kids blocking and singing. Oliver! also has a husband and wife team producing the show and many other parents, spouses and children pitching in behind the scenes. One family has all of their members involved, with mom and two daughters performing onstage, while dad wields a hammer offstage building the sets. Working together on a production allows the families to spend quality time together and creates memories that will stay with the kids for a very long time. Where else can a child hear their parent telling them to yell at the top of their lungs, crawl under a table or jump up on a bench? As one young girl says, "I like performing with my mom because we get to spend more time together, we get to learn together, and we get to goof around together!" So grab your kids and plan a family night out to see Oliver this spring at the John Elliott Theatre in Georgetown. You never know, you and your children could be the next ones dancing on tables, belting out tunes and building memories together. The songs, dances and vibrant characters of Oliver! can be seen on the evenings of May 10, 11, 12, 17, 18 and 19 and at a matinee on Mother's Day, May 13. Tickets are available at the John Elliott Theatre Box Office in Georgetown or by calling 905-877-3700.
