Who is who in Oliver!?

As we reported last weeks Clear Space will present the classic family musical OLIVER! beginning July 16.

They re-create London in 1850 and follow the world’s most famous orphan as his life takes him from workhouse to funeral parlor to joining a gang of pickpockets. This musical adaptation of Dickens’ famous novel is filled by jovial, lively and odd characters as well as familiar and catchy tunes, including “Consider Yourself,” “Food, Glorious Food” and “As Long as He Needs Me.”

There are good professionals behind this play.

The orphans/pickpockets as you can see include Zane Ellis of Selbyville, Stephen Mervine of Bridgeville, Triever Sherwood of Lewes, Paul Colucci and Gianna Abboud of Rehoboth Beach, Meghan Hayward of Milford, and Cole Haden of Bethany Beach as Oliver.

Ken Skrzesz, director of the show, added, “I am interested to see how the style of show takes shape over the final two weeks. The interaction between all of these completely different characters along Oliver’s journey to happiness truly demands your attention.”

Deb Rhoads, Costume Designer, is putting the finishing touches on the remarkable costumes she has created for the show. “I’ve been ‘dirtying’ things up for the past two days,” she said. With the style of the show, and the poverty of most of the characters surrounding Oliver, the original costumes she designed and constructed needed some extensive “handiwork” before they were ready. So, Deb has been adding mud, paint, and tearing holes within the costumes after their construction to add that extra feel. Corey Barto, a student of the Theatre Arts Academy at Cape Henlopen High School, portrays Bill Sykes in the show. After his final costume fitting, he commented, “I could not believe the difference in my costume after it had been torn up. However, it really makes me feel very different when I have it on. I can’t wait for dress rehearsal.”

Next days we'll give you more information about who is who in Oliver!.
