"It seems to me the book has not just aesthetic values-- the charming little clothy box of the thing, the smell of the glue, even the print, which has its own beauty. But there's something about the sensation of ink on paper that is in some sense a thing, a phenomenon rather than an epiphenomenon. I can't break the association of electric trash with the computer screen. Words on the screen give the sense of being just another passing electronic wriggle."

—John Hoyer Updike (b. 1932) American writer, Rabbit, Run, Rabbit at Rest

The Hampstead Stage Company is proud to present Nicholas Nickleby at Vail Public. Celebrating 30 years of bringing books to life, the Hampstead Stage Company’s two professional actors will portray multiple characters with quick costume changes and dialects.  Nicholas Nickleby, a young teacher, is searching for a better life after being separated from his family.  He travels all over the world, including to the New American colonies, with fellow actor Mr. Crummles.  He learns to use his talents to overcome his misfortunes, and reunite the Nickleby family.  Through this play, our audiences will be encouraged to dig into their past, find their talents, and plant roots for a brighter future. 

The mission of the Hampstead Stage Company is to educate audiences throughout the country by bringing classic literature to life through live theater. This sparks an interest in reading the classics, instills a love and appreciation of the arts, and preserves theater for future generations.  Please join us on Tuesday July 30 at 5:30 p.m. to celebrate one of Charles Dickens' most beloved stories!
