A young orphan boy’s struggle through life unfolded on the stage at Bayport-Blue Point High School this February when a cast of talented student-actors performed the hit musical “Oliver!” The actors and student pit orchestra entertained audiences during their three-night run while members of the set crew transformed the stage for the Broadway-caliber production.

Adding to this year’s production was the guest roles of 20 of the district’s fourth-grade students, who acted as orphans in the production. The young actors were well incorporated into the seasoned cast of high school students. From the opening note to the close of the curtain, this year’s production left audiences eagerly anticipating next year’s show.
