Baldock school theatre group marks Dickens’ anniversary
A SCHOOL theatre group is celebrating the 200th anniversary of a famous author’s birth with an adaptation of one of his best-loved novels.
The Knights Templar School Theatre Company first performed Charles Dickens’ Nicholas Nickleby on Tuesday with two more shows tomorrow (Thursday) and Friday.
Sixth form students Chris Mutter as Nicholas Nickleby and Jo Mance as Kate lead the cast for a play which tells the tale of a young man who must protect his mother and sister from the clutches of his evil uncle after his father dies.
Andrew Sills, head of drama at the school in Park Street, Baldock, said: “Nicholas Nickleby is an epic play in every way. The audience will see all types of character on his journey – schoolmasters, muffin boys, artists and sly businessmen – Dickens has created a full cast of memorable characters that are full of life.”
Both evenings start at 7pm and tickets cost �8 for adults or �5 for concessions.
