2017 A Tale of Two Dickens

November 17, 2017 - November 18, 2017

Douglas County Historical Society cordially invites you to an exclusive opportunity to see a great-great-grandson of the literary master, Charles Dickens, perform on Friday, November 17 and Saturday, November 18. In true Dickensian fashion, Gerald Charles Dickens wows audiences by bringing the beloved Dickens’ characters to life in one-man performances. He commands the stage from the very moment he proclaims the classic opening words of A Christmas Carol, “Marley was dead: to begin with.”

This year, Mr. Dickens will delight audiences with a Friday afternoon tea and Saturday morning performance of, A Chance Encounter with Mr. Dickens, at The Field Club of Omaha. The General Crook House Museum will feature his newest adaptation, A Tale of Two Cities. Due to the popularity of the tea performances, we have added a Saturday afternoon tea performance of the timeless classic, A Christmas Carol. Gerald’s ability to capture the spirit of his great-great-grandfather is a spellbinding experience not to be missed.
