Odds Bodkin to Appear as Charles Dickens

Join us on Thursday, December 16, at 7 pm for an evening with master storyteller Odds Bodkin, as he reads the most-beloved of all Christmas stories to an audience of adults and children.

In 1853 Charles Dickens began to read A Christmas Carol dressed in a tuxedo and reading from behind a lectern. He created voices for Scrooge, Bob Crachit, Marley's Ghost and others and presented an edited version for live audiences. Odds Bodkin has re-created this experience in a non-religious 1-hour performance available for the 2010 Holiday Season. With British character voices, Odds reads Dickens' own words, dressed in a tuxedo himself.

This family event is appropriate for children age 7 and older. Unaccompanied adults are also welcome to attend. Space is limited so registration is strongly recommended. Visit http://tinyurl.com/mmkpldickens or call 424-5021 to register.
