Dozens of SM North student thespians and musicians showed off their talents before packed crowds in the school’s auditorium this past weekend with four showings of “Oliver!,” the school’s 2015 musical.

Directed by teacher Ben Bartlett, the show featured lush sets of Dickensian London and colorful characters. Nearly two dozen elementary students from Santa Fe Trail, Roesland and Crestview Elementaries, among others, acted in the show as well.
