This year’s Rare & Novel Event, Read Like the Dickens, is going to be quite the party. We will not only present an original, audience-interactive performance by the Red Rocks Community College Theatre Arts & Dance Department, but also cocktail hour, which starts at 6 p.m. and kicks off the silent auction, will be serenaded by the charming sounds of the Original Dickens Carolers.
The Who? No. The Original Dickens Carolers. This is one of the oldest caroling groups in Colorado. The same brilliantly costumed quartets locals often see filling Larimer Square with holiday cheer and kicking off the tree lighting ceremony at Cherry Creek Shopping Center for more than 20 years.
There’s more than just song, there’s theatre. Each Original Dickens Carolers Quartet consists of four Victorian-period characters, which will bring another dimension to the musical performance.
“We are thrilled to lend our voices to this event in support of the Jeffco Libraries,” said Becca Fletcher of the Original Dickens Carolers. “The libraries provide vital support to the community well beyond the books on the shelves, and we are pleased to take part in an event which will raise awareness and funds that can go towards the many programs offered by Jeffco Libraries.”
We are just as honored to have them. With the Original Dickens Carolers, we may just have to rename our event—Read Sing Like the Dickens.
