Gerald Dickens Returns with the Classics and a New Show in 2022
Douglas County Historical Society cordially invites you to an exclusive performance of the timeless classic “A Christmas Carol” performed by the great-great-grandson of the literary master, Charles Dickens. In addition, DCHS is excited to host Gerald Dickens for the exclusive United States debut of his new show, “The Queen and the Commoner.”
Gerald Dickens will be performing TWO engagements in Omaha for Douglas County Historical Society guests on Sunday, November 6th.
“A Christmas Carol” at Field Club of Omaha – 2pm
The timeless story of ‘A Christmas Carol’ remains as relevant over 150 years after the death of Charles Dickens as when the book was first published in December 1843. The most popular book of the holiday season that year, the now classic work of literature continues to be shared as an annual holiday tradition today. Gerald brings his unique adaptation to the classic Christmas tale, in which he plays over 30 characters as a one-man show! This performance includes an Afternoon Tea service.
Tickets are $45 for members and $50 for non-members.
“The Queen and the Commoner” at the General Crook House Museum – 6pm
Mr. Dickens performed a special reading for the Jubilee earlier this year at the Rochester Dickens Festival. The Queen and the Commoner is a telling of the relationship between Charles Dickens and Queen Victoria. DCHS is only U.S. venue to offer this reading! The evening includes heavy appetizers served at 6pm, followed by a performance of The Queen and the Commoner at 7pm.
Tickets are $85 for members and $90 for non-members.

Gerald Charles Dickens
Gerald Charles Dickens, of Oxford, England, is a great-great-grandson of the author Charles Dickens. He has worked as an actor, director, and producer for many years. In 1993, he created his first one-man show, a theatrical performance of A Christmas Carol inspired by Charles’ energetic and highly praised readings of the 1860s.
A fascination with the life and works of his ancestor led him to write and direct additional one-man shows. He regularly performs internationally in major theaters, arts centers, hotels, and stately homes. Don’t miss this exclusive opportunity to see him action on November 6th!
