"THE WORLD OF 1911" Travel back in time with a very Victorian-Era "ENGLISHMAN THOMAS HUTCHINSON" portrayed by Actor Al LePage for a  DRAMATIC READING PERFORMANCE! LePage not only CREATES ALL 26 CHARACTERS  using DICKENS' FULL HISTORIC SCRIPT, but also does it ON LOCATION WHERE  DICKENS DID IT, in the HISTORIC OMNI PARKER HOUSE HOTEL! AND, it's THE ONLY BOSTON PERFORMANCE and of the COMPLETE historic script, too!

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.

BEFORE THE PERFORMANCE, PLAYFUL AND INTERACTIVE! LePage's love of improvisation not only means that he may engage you in conversation, but also could ask you to join him on the stage! Since he likes to experiment and believes in seizing the moment, even he doesn't always know what's going to happen next. He's also definitely got what could aptly be called "HIS STORIES" to tell, too, both in "THE YEAR" relevant to the place he's performing to connect, interpret, and share history with the audience. This not only makes each performance UNIQUE, but also keeps them fresh and EXCITING, spontaneous and FULL OF SURPRISES, too!

MINCE TARTS, WARM SPICED CIDER, AND A SPECIAL GIFT! This performance will also include a cup of warm cider and Parker House mince tarts, plus at least one special gift will be given to some audience member during the performance by "Mr. Hutchinson," too!

ALL PROCEEDS TO BENEFIT THE GREATER BOSTON FOOD BANK, the largest hunger-relief organization in New England, working to help end hunger in eastern Massachusetts. This special event is being hosted at the Parker House Hotel and is fully sponsored by OMNI Hotels & Resorts, Parker House/Boston.

NOTE: MATURE CHILDREN AGE 10 and older will best appreciate these dramatic reading performances, originally scripted by Dickens for adult audiences.
