From 'The Pickwick Papers' to 'The Mystery of Edwin Drood' which is your favourite Charles Dickens story? Ciarán and Holly, Management students from LIPA, have devised a day of performance and interactions that bring some of the wonderful Dickens stories to life.
Here they tell us more:
Excitement is mounting as we put the final pieces in place for our event based on Dickens' world at Sudley House.
On Sunday 13th May from 11am until 4pm, characters from Dickens’ classics will roam the house with the accompaniment of live music and interactive activities for all to enjoy.
This dramatised event will showcase some of the most infamous characters from Dickens’ novels. Keep an eye out for:
- Ebenezer Scrooge from 'A Christmas Carol'
- The Artful Dodger & Nancy from 'Oliver Twist'
- Miss Havisham from 'Great Expectations'.
You can look forward to meeting Ebenezer Scrooge behind his desk within the study and if the sun is shining, Nancy may appear in the rose garden at the front of the house – we will stop there however before we give too much away!
At LIPA we are fortunate enough to have plenty of creative students studying the dramatic craft and are therefore always willing to perform and explore characters. A number of our Community Drama students will be playing some of the most well known roles within Charles Dickens’ repertoire. We look forward to seeing you there; feel free to question the actors about their lives, costume and language.
