One of the greatest English language authors of all time is Charles Dickens! He was a prolific writer and, lucky for us, many of his amazing works have been made into musicals. Oliver and A Christmas Carol are 2 of the most famous, but The Mystery of Edwin Drood, A Tale of Two Cities, Nicholas Nickleby and David Copperfield have all had their time on the great white way! Join us for this musical theater class as we explore the world of Dickensian Musicals!
