Dickens by Candlelight

Dickens by Candlelight - Digby Memorial Church Hall, Sherborne.

Starring Barry North as the ‘Spirit’ of Dickens - in a stunning solo performance full of humour, drama, and voices from the past. 

Barry will portray some of Dickens’ most famous characters from Oliver Twist, The Pickwick Papers, and the all-time seasonal favourite, ‘A Christmas Carol’. He will also reveal something of the life of the man himself, regarded by many as the greatest novelist of the Victorian Age.

Expect to hear Mr Bumble roar, Fagin squawk and Aunt Betsy Trotwood shriek, plus a host of other much-loved characters and rascals who are famous the world over.

With a unique insight into these caricatures through his many own stage performances, Barry will deliver a highly entertaining 'Dickens of an Evening' which will be 'Beyond Expectations'. Admission: £17.50 Concession £15.00
