Travel to New Orleans 1928 for a triumphant story of love conquering adversity and of finding family in the most unexpected places. The Festival is proud to present the Pasadena Playhouse production. Inspired by Charles Dickens' Oliver Twist, and in the rich musical tradition of Jelly's Last Jam, this heart-warming musical brings award-winning director/choreographer Debbie Allen (Fame) back to Southern California theater. Set in "the Paris of the South," when the Roaring 20s were at their peak, TWIST takes us on an orphan's journey to find a place to belong and a family to love. Tony Award-nominee William F. Brown (writer of The Wiz) wrote the book for this new spin on the Charles Dickens tale, with music by Tena Clark (Grammy Award-winning songwriter) and Gary Prim; lyrics by Tena Clark
