The Parkway Playhouse Presents Oliver @ Parkway Playhouse | Burnsville | North Carolina | United States

In Oliver, the streets of Victorian England come to life. Oliver, a malnourished orphan in a workhouse, becomes the neglected apprentice of an undertaker. Oliver escapes to London and finds acceptance amongst a group of petty thieves and pickpockets led by the elderly Fagin. When Oliver is captured for a theft that he did not commit, the benevolent victim, Mr. Brownlow takes him in. Fearing the safety of his hideout, Fagin employs the sinister Bill Sikes and the sympathetic Nancy to kidnap him back, threatening Oliver’s chances of discovering the true love of a family.

Parkway Playhouse Presents Godspell @ Parkway Playhouse
Jul 28 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm
Parkway Playhouse Presents Godspell @ Parkway Playhouse | Burnsville | North Carolina | United States

In Godspell, a small group of people help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques, and a hefty dose of comic timing. An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, is employed as the story of Jesus’ life dances across the stage. Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, Jesus’ messages of kindness, tolerance, and love come vibrantly to life.
