Magical Starlight Theatre
Magical Starlight Theatre presents “Oliver,” the story of a boy born in a workhouse to a woman of obvious good breeding. The boy is later sold to the highest bidder when he dares to ask for more food. Mistreated by the bidder, Oliver manages to escape and find adventures in London. Oliver ultimately finds love and happiness.
Performances, designed for those ages 4 and older, will take place Jan. 18-20 and 25-27 at Naperville Central High School auditorium, 440 W. Aurora Ave.
Tickets are $8 if purchased by the Thursday before the performance. Tickets at the door are $10. Purchase tickets at recenroll.napervilleparks.org.
