Youth Production of “Oliver”

From the Spotlight Youth Theater, a production of the classic musical.

How good are the productions at Spotlight Youth Theater?  Good enough so that you don’t need to be related to one of the kids in the show to enjoy it.

Spotlight productions are probably better than even the best high school productions, because they draw young actors from a broad swath of communities, from all over the Milwaukee metropolitan area.

Also, in the cast of orphan pickpockets, young Luke Hentzell, long term leukemia survivor for whom drama has been a key element in his rehabilitation from a traumatic situation.

Full disclosure:  two of our grandchildren are in the show.  Look for them playing Nancy and Bill Sykes.
