"MORE DICKENS! MORE DICKENS!" ~ The Dickens Project Opens December 14th




It’s December, and for many people in the English speaking world that means Dickens – Charles Dickens.  The Nineteenth Century author wrote Oliver Twist, David Copperfield, Great Expectations among  nearly two dozen other novels, a bushel of short stories, and a passel of non-fiction.  Of course, he is also the author of A Christmas Carol, which will be seen on stages and screens, both large and small, all over the world this month.  2012 also happens to be the 200th anniversary of his birth, which is being celebrated in Second Life © as well as in the Real World.

There have been many tributes to the author in the metaverse this year.  Friday, December 14th sees the opening of The Dickens Project on Info Island in the Community Virtual Library Estate.  What makes this tribute different? 

The Dickens Project is a celebration of the works of Charles Dickens through live voice presentations of the author’s words primarily, but not exclusively, A Christmas Carol.

ARTS and LITERATURE: Let The "Bard" Times Roll!


There is nothing quite like an outdoor festival, even a virtual one!  Saturday and Sunday, August 18th and 19th will see the sandy shores of Mango in the Fruit Islands once again host Shakespeare and Shakespeare-inspired performances on the BARD ON THE VIRTUAL BEACH outdoor Festival Stage.  (Don't forget to wave at "Ismael" the whale, and bring something to feed "Yorrick" the pesky peacock). 
  Each day features different performances, with Saturday’s event beginning at 3:00pm and Sunday’s at Noon.  Each session is approximately 90 minutes in length, but it is a Festival and anything could happen!  Last year’s BARD drew more residents to the Fruit Islands than virtual ABBA did, so it could be adviseable to get there a little early and scope out your seat.  As always with live performances in the virtual world, your enjoyment and everyone else’s will be enhanced if you remove as many huds, mysti-tool, bling, scripted clothing, and primmy hair as possible: keep it simple, and don’t be naked!
