StoryFest Events Announces "The Dickens Project"

StoryFest Events, producers of the annual events StoryFest, BOOFest, and Bard On the Virtual Beach, have announced their newest production: The Dickens Project.  This new project is the most ambitious event yet, celebrating the Dickens Bicentenary Year 2012, will be produced as a beta project this year with the possibility of an expanded project in 2013.  

 Sponsored by Stories Unlimited! and the Community Virtual Library, The Dickens Project will be an interactive environment for the presentation of A Christmas Carol which will be open to presentations of that work in whole, part, or adapted (as long as it is true to the original story) beginning December 14th through December 26th.  On December 27th, the last day of the Project, the venue will be open to "alternate version" presentations and tributes to the classic.

Any and all voice performers in Second Life are welcomed.  Presentations may be solo, duets, or larger groups of voices.  They must be live and in voice, and scheduled through StoryFest Events who will be managing the booking, promoting, and event managment. The Dickens Project will be located in Info Island in the Community Virtual Library Estate, and tips to benefit the CVL will be encouraged. 
Here is the approximate Project Timeline ....
  • Dec 5 - Deadline for Presenter Requests
  • Dec 10 to 13 - Project site available for presenter preview
  • Dec 14 - Opening Day
  • Dec 27 - Alternate Versions Day, and then it all goes Ba-Bye!
Interested?  Apply to Caledonia Skytower by notecard in world for a presenter slot by December 5th.  Be sure to include the times and dates you would prefer to perform.
