RSVP to Dickensian Holiday Party & Preview Screening

Written by Sarah Sheehan, WITF | Oct 25, 2017 3:33 PM


Iconic Characters. New Adventures. WITF brings the Victorian world of Charles Dickens to Central PA!

Join us Friday, December 8 at 7pm for a Dickensian Holiday Party & Preview Screening.

WITF's Cary Burkett will host the evening with co-emcee, Mr. Ebenezer Scrooge, as played by Mr. Nick Hughes, of the Open Stage of Harrisburg's production of A Christmas Carol.

Guests are encouraged to dress in their most festive Victorian garb. Prizes will be awarded for Best Costumed Lady, Best Costumed Gentleman and Best Costumed Duo or Group.

The ticketed reception will feature heavy hors d'oeuvres, wine, beer plus a Victorian themed cocktail. Take a picture with a 19th century inventor, listen to angelic caroling of the children's choir and immerse yourself in the world of Charles Dickens.

The short program and preview screening begin at 8pm. Dickensian, a dramatic television series that will premiere on WITF TV on December 28, intertwines the realm of fictional characters in Charles Dickens' novels, including Scrooge, Fagin and Miss Havisham, in 19th century London. The Old Curiosity Shop sits next door to The Three Cripples Pub, while Fagin's Den is hidden down a murky alley off a bustling Victorian street.

The Dickensian drama begins on Christmas Eve as Amelia and Arthur Havisham gather to hear the reading of their father's will, and Jacob Marley collects debts from the sick and needy.
Reception tickets are $45 per person.

The preview screening is open to the public, with a limited number of seats available. Reservations required.
