Charles Dickens’ Great-Great Grandson to Grace the FDU Stage On December 3, 2013

Teaneck, NJ (November 13, 2013)­­ — Fairleigh Dickinson University will present “A Christmas Carol” at Wilson Auditorium on Tuesday, December 3 at 7 p.m. This heartwarming show-of-the-season is performed by Gerald Charles Dickens, the great-great-grandson of literary master, Charles Dickens. Gerald, an actor and producer hailing from Oxford, England, will perform his captivating rendition of this timeless holiday classic.

During his energetic one-man show, Dickens brings “A Christmas Carol” to life. He leaps, he sobs, and he laughs as he depicts 26 characters of the classic tale, with just a table, wing chair, and hat rack accompanying him on stage. He has created different postures and voices for each character, achieving this so adeptly that the audience has no doubt about “who is who,” so to speak.

Mr. Dickens will be available to sign a special selection of books and gifts during a public reception to be held immediately following each performance at 5p.m. and 8:30p.m.

Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at door. To purchase tickets, please call 201-692-6500. Show note: Doors will close promptly at 7 p.m. for this special performance.

Wilson Auditorium is located in Dickinson Hall at 140 University Plaza Drive, Hackensack.

Parking: Rothman Center - Visitor Parking Lot (corner of Temple Avenue & University Plaza Drive). Please Note: After 5:00 p.m., visitors can also park in Dickinson Hall parking lot.
