At 8 p.m. Friday, see Oliver!, a musical based on Charles Dickens' Oliver Twist (In the book, an orphan boy teams up with a pick-pocketing orphan gang. Hilarity ensues when the bad guy clubs a lady to death. The musical is all of that stuff, plus music. It's like Annie for dudes.) as performed by ONSTAGE in Bedford at Trinity Arts Theater at Bedford Boys' Ranch, 2819 Forest Ridge Drive. Got big plans with your R.L. Stine book club that you can't pass up that night? It's cool. The show also runs at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. Saturday, so you can see it then if it doesn't interfere with your Liam Neeson latch-hook league. Tickets are $15 for adults and $13 for Bedford residents, old people (yeah, I know that's redundant) and students. Call 817-354-6444 or visit onstageinbedford.org.
Fri., Dec. 21, 8 p.m.; Sat., Dec. 22, 2 & 8 p.m., 2007
