CAROL WEEK Comes to its Eventful Conclusion at The Dickens Project this Weekend

The 2017 Edition of The Dickens Project, which opened November 25th, has already presented over 25 hours of live events, and welcomed hundreds of visitors.  There is more to come. This year's Project is being hosted on Linden Endowment for the Arts Region 7

December 15-17 marks the climax of "Carol Week," where Charles Dickens' beloved humanistic novella, "A Christmas Carol", is featured in a number of presentations and adaptations.  Carol Week traditionally concludes with The Big Read - a session where the entire text of Scrooge's journey of redemption are presented in a single session, live, by a talented cast of storytellers reading in relay style.  This year, the Big Read will be presented in voice as well as on stream, so that the greatest number of residents can enjoy the holiday classic in Dickens Square on LEA 7.

Along with Fezziwig's Ball, a pre-read performance by acoustic musician Wald Schridde, and two performances by Misfit Dance and Performance Art SL. All event times are slt.
