HZ Musical

With a cast and crew of over 100 grade 6-8 students, this award-winning musical by Lionel Bart comes to life on the streets of Victorian England. This musical is based on the classic Charles Dickens’ novel, “Oliver Twist.” Young, orphaned Oliver navigates London’s underworld of theft and violence, searching for a home, a family and- most importantly- love.

Performances of “Oliver!” will be held at the Performing Arts Center at Horizon Middle School. Showtimes will be March 3-5 at 7 p.m. and March 6 at 2 p.m. Tickets can be reserved online at http://moorheadschools.org/tix or by calling the box office at 218-284-2255. Tickets will also be available at the door.

The Tony award-winning musical is widely hailed as a true theatrical masterpiece by actors and audiences alike. Full of familiar and hummable songs including “Consider Yourself;” “I’d do Anything;” “Food, Glorious Food” and the spine-tingling “As Long as He Needs Me,” the show is sure to be a crowd pleaser.

Horizon Middle School Theater continues its reputation for staging a quality, full length musical that not only entertains its audience but gives our students a chance to experience solid literature and work on the skills of commitment, hard work and teamwork as they create wonderful art,” said Kelly Dubois-Gerchak, Horizon Theater Director.
