UPDATE: Friday’s performance moved up to 5:30 p.m. due to inclement weather.

Mount Greylock Regional School presents the timeless classic “Oliver!” on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, March 2, 3, and 4, 2023, at 7 p.m. in the school’s auditorium at 1781 Cold Spring Road in Williamstown. 

Based on “Oliver Twist,” by Charles Dickens, “Oliver!” follows its titular character on a journey from a workhouse for orphans to bustling London, where Oliver falls in with a ring of young pickpockets. As the action builds, the audience is treated to both laughter and tears, but most of all award-winning music and a rousing theatrical experience.

Lionel Bart wrote the book, music, and lyrics for “Oliver!,” which earned him the 1963 Tony Award for Best Original Score for beloved classics like “Food, Glorious Food,” “Consider Yourself,” and “I’d Do Anything.” 

Faculty member Jeffrey Welch directs his 24th musical for Mount Greylock. Vocal direction is by MGRS band and chorus teacher Jacqueline Vinette, assisted by senior Sam Tucker-Smith. 

Concessions and a raffle will be provided by the MGRS Friends of the Arts, with proceeds benefiting school arts. Prizes include original artwork and tickets to music and theater events, ranging in value from $175 to $268 per prize.

Show tickets must be purchased in advance—$10 for adults and $5 for students—and are available by visiting or by scanning the following QR code:
