A new musical based on Charles Dickens' Oliver Twist
Ticket Giveaway for Wednesday, July 13 at 8:00 PM

It's not often that a new, family-friendly musical comes around, so Angelenos get a treat when TWIST - An American Musical, featuring American Idol's Tamyra Gray, debuts at the Pasadena Playhouse this month. TWIST, an adaptation of Charles Dickens' classic novel Oliver Twist, is set in New Orleans on the eve of the Great Depression and tells the story of a young orphan boy who navigates the colorful and sometimes rough waters of street life and racial intolerance in his quest to find his family and to find love.

The score for TWIST features the musical pulse of New Orleans in the 1920's and is highlighted by a tapestry of soaring ballads, hot jazz, blues, gospel and tap-infused dance numbers that will take audiences along this magical journey. Golden Globe and multi-Emmy Award-winner Debbie Allen directs and choreographs a timely show which is perfect for the whole family!
