"There is divine beauty in learning, just as there is human beauty in tolerance. To learn means to accept the postulate that life did not begin at my birth. Others have been here before me, and I walk in their footsteps. The books I have read were composed by generations of fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, teachers and disciples. I am the sum total of their experiences, their quests. And so are you."

—Elie(zer) Wiesel (b. 1928) Romanian-born writer, lecturer, survivor Nazi camps, Nobel

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!
