Sunday, December 18 I A VERY VICTORIAN CHRISTMAS CAROL, DONE LIKE DICKENS! Travel back in time to the Victorian Era with “ENGLISHMAN THOMAS HUTCHINSON” portrayed by Actor Al LePage for a DRAMATIC READING PERFORMANCE! LePage not only based his specially created shortened version on DICKENS’ HISTORIC SCRIPT, but also does it ON LOCATION WHERE DICKENS DID IT, in the HISTORIC PARKER HOUSE HOTEL! DICKENS’ ACTING STYLE! Dickens simply used his voice, made facial expressions, gestured and moved his body to CREATE ALL THE CHARACTERS! LePage will do the same — accents and all — plus sound effects, too! From Scrooge to Tiny Tim, from Marley’s Ghost to Mrs. Cratchit, there’s howls and growls, bangs and bongs, a DANCE WITH A SONG, lively laughter and heartfelt tears.
Monday, December 19 I Introduction to Burlesque Through a series of lessons and demonstrations which build upon one another, students will learn the fundamentals of burlesque dance.
