An Evening with Mr. Dickens
“A Christmas Carol” has been a holiday treat for 175 years. Written and published by the author, Charles Dickens, in 1843, his “Ghost Story of Christmas” was an instant hit in Victorian England. Dickens himself had a second career reading his works, in person, for an adoring public and “A Christmas Carol” was his most popular reading. Mr. Dickens, a Unitarian, will begin a new tour in December: he has agreed to give a reading of his “Christmas Carol” at First UU Church. He will be assisted by A.J.(Andy) Musick, who has performed in many theatre performances in Wichita. He also directs school productions of Shakespeare plays and teaches stage fighting. Entrance will be $10, $5 for students. There will be carol music and refreshments served during the intermission.
