The Bills: Friday September 2, 7pm, Sitka Performing Arts Center. Tickets are $20 general, $15 students and seniors.
The Bills are a Canadian acoustic music super-group whose explosive live shows have made them legendary folk/roots entertainers. These five gifted multi-instrumentalists are masters at leaving listeners breathless and revitalized all at once. A band after Sitka’s own heart, The Bills write many of their songs together on an island in a cabin heated by a wood-burning stove and the warmth of each others company as they sit around tables playing acoustic music and singing in harmonies. Now they bring that music to us. So gather round Sitkans and be treated to The Bills’ instrumental virtuosity, lush vocal arrangements, evocative songwriting, and refreshing sounds of strings, bellows, keys, voices, banjo and bows.

Oliver! is an award-winning musical adaptation of the classic Dickens’ novel. It includes some of the most memorable characters and songs to ever hit the stage, including “Food, Glorious Food”, “Consider Yourself”, and “I’d Do Anything”. The streets of Victorian England come to life as Oliver, a malnourished orphan in a workhouse, becomes the neglected apprentice of an undertaker. Oliver escapes to London and finds acceptance amongst a group of petty thieves and pickpockets led by the elderly Fagin. When Oliver is captured for a theft he did not commit, the benevolent victim, Mr. Brownlow takes him in. Fearing the safety of his hideout, Fagin employs the sinister Bill Sikes and the sympathetic Nancy to kidnap him back, threatening Oliver’s chances of discovering the true love of a family.
