"Twist - A Dickens' of A Musical By B.R. Kreep"

Local playwright Richard O'Donnell (nom de plume B.R. Kreep), or "R" to those who know and work with him, is not a director of classic musicals. He is a true artist in every sense of the word and will take plot and general idea behind a popular classic and will twist and turn it into something completely unique and memorable.  He is a playwright and creates his own storylines. He is a composer and lyricist who creates songs that will resonate in your head long after the show has ended. He has the gift of gab and his well-infused wit and comedy is sure to leave you chuckling.  Especially when the audience has no choice but to become involved. His brilliance is extremely underrated.

  • Caroline Silver as Olivia Twist
