'Oliver!' inspires panel discussion on social injustices

The Arts & Science Center to host a panel discussion in advance of the Summer Musical Oliver! comparing Charles Dickens' England with today's gangs, domestic violence, and other social ills.

On June 27th, at 6:00 p.m., Reverend David Fleming will lead the conversation that is, unfortunately, still relevant today. "It doesn't seem possible that in 2013 we haven't solved issues like gangs and domestic violence" said Dr. Lenore Shoults, executive director at The Center. She went on to say, "The musical Oliver! was selected for its entertainment value but it was also chosen because we want to use the Arts as a catalyst for community dialogue ."
