Oliver! Coming to the SKYCITY Theatre Oct 29 through Nov 21.

Mark Hadlow will take the stage as Fagin, in this new production directed by Raymond Hawthorne.

This Dickens classic has been presented through movies and stage productions for many years.  Countless children have had the joy of singing songs like: Food Glorious Food, Consider Yourself at Home, I’d do Anything, the all time favorite, Where is Love and You’ve Got to Pick a Pocket or Two.

Sam getting spiffy for "Tommy the Musical"

However this year our very own Sam Verlinden will be gracing this showcase stage. While Sam is not playing a lead roll, you can be sure that his rich, pure, perfect pitched voice will add much to every scene he is in, which should be a good number.

This one thing you can count on. When you leave the theatre after enjoying this Musical, like Oliver,  you’ll come

♫ ♫♫  ♫ ♫  ♫♫ ♫♫ ♫♫ back again  ASKING FOR MORE!

Be watching throughout this month as we gain backstage glimpses of Sam and the Cast and hopefully more interviews and movie clips.  Sam is very excited about this Musical which comes on the heels of ‘TOMMY THE MUSICAL” which just concluded this past Wednesday.

Eventfinder Web Site is encouraging you to purchase your tickets early so your not left out in the cold, a ticket-less orphan.

Sam Verlinden 11 yo
It gives me great pleasure to announce next month’s feature star. He is New Zealand born Sam Verlinden. Sam has been   singing almost before he walked. His talent has been recognized by thousands and he is truly a remarkable young talent. Be watching for Sam’s debut here on Rivenmaster’s Place, as we join countless others who have shouted the praises of New Zealand’s shining new STAR.

Sam has his own Web site . Please visit there and spend time looking over his wealth of musical and acting history.
I’m not sure that one month will be long enough to blog this extraordinary young man!
