2015 Dickens Performance

The Vaillancourt family is no stranger to Christmas and starting traditions! We are thrilled to welcome Gerald Charles Dickens—Charles Dickens' great-great-grandson—back to our Sutton studios to perform his one-man version of Dickens' most famous stories. Mr. Dickens adopts different voices, expressions and mannerisms to portray each of the story’s twenty-six characters in this acclaimed one-man show. This year, we are thrilled to offer two different performances over Thanksgiving weekend: A Christmas Carol and Doctor Marigold. Show time approximately one hour and is not recommended for children under the age of 8 years old. Mr. Dickens will be available to meet and sign products following each performance.

A Christmas Carol

Popular at any time of year, Gerald’s performance of A Christmas Carol has received standing ovations all over the world. Using his own adaptation of Charles Dickens’ classic Christmas tale, Gerald plays over 30 characters using his vocal and physical talents to bring each scene vividly to life. Performed as a one-act show, this performance is guaranteed to start the season off on the right foot.

$25 tickets for side seating,
$30 tickets for center seating.

  • Saturday, November 28th at 2pm & 7pm at Vaillancourt Folk Art in Sutton
  • Sunday, November 29th at 2pm at Vaillancourt Folk Art in Sutton

Doctor Marigold

Doctor Marigold was one of Charles Dickens most popular readings. The Doctor of the title is a market Cheap Jack, named in honour of a doctor who assisted at his birth. On the surface he is a trader with a rapid sales-patter, but underneath there lays a story both moving and heartbreaking. Although little known today, Doctor Marigold still moves audiences as it did in Charles’ day. If you are attending a performance of A Christmas Carol you are able to attend this how at a discounted rate.

  • Sunday, November 29th at 6pm at Vaillancourt Folk Art in Sutton
