A Dickens’ of a Christmas, written and produced by George Hosker-Bouley who also stars as Charles Dickens, returns for its 10th year with its unique spin of the classic A Christmas Carol. Befuddled with writers block, a concerned Charles Dickens wonders what gift he should give his children for the holiday. After deciding to give them a story the well of ideas runs dry as Dickens discusses his troubles with his friends, all of whom appear in the classic tale. The production is complimented with original music and classic holiday songs performed on guitar by Chrisopher Torrey!
The production is presented by Carpe Diem, Hosker-Bouley’s award winning company that has been producing award-winning original theater for more than 26 years as well as the ever-popular Portsmouth Underbelly Tour. As artistic and executive director of the Prescott Park Arts Festival for more than 13 seasons, Hosker always blended traditional stories with a wry sense of humor. This past year Hosker-Bouley has presented the standing room only Not Last Night, The Desperate Hour. The Windsor Pearls, Where There’s A Will, The Gloucester House Boys” and A Night at the Museum – John Paul Jones. This troupe of talented performers will give you a treat for your eyes and ears. The show stars local favorites Norm Smith, Meg Oolders, Sarah Shanahan, Katy Hunt, Ken Stiles and a special guest performance by Michael Hosker-Bouley as Death.
