Following the original steps as his great-great grandfather, Charles Dickens, made Gerald Charles Dickens has forged ahead to create a tradition unique to the area. For the 5th year in a row, Dickens will make the journey from England to take the stage and perform his mesmerizing one-man performance of A Christmas Carol. Done in a similar manner that Charles Dickens used for his Worcester readings in both 1842 and 1868, Gerald adopts different voices, expressions and mannerisms to portray each of the story’s twenty-six characters in this acclaimed one-man show.
Gerald has performed at the Vaillancourt Folk Art theatre in Sutton, MA since 2009 and added Mechanics Hall—the same venue that Charles Dickens famously read the story to a sell-out crowd in 1868—in Worcester, MA to the performance schedule during his 2012 September visit commemorating the 200th birthday of Charles Dickens.
For 2013, start or continue your family tradition this holiday season by seeing this incredible show Friday, November 29th (7:30pm) at Mechanics Hall or Saturday, November 30th (2:00pm or 7:00pm) at Vaillancourt Folk Art.
Show time approximately one hour and is not recommended for children under the age of 8 years old.
