Chesterfield Operatic Society invite you to the open rehearsal for our next production 'Nicholas Nickleby'. This musical is a world premiere based on the novel by Charles Dickens. Book, lyrics and music by Dave Culling.
Join us on Monday 8th May, 7.30pm at our rehearsal space on Abercrombie Street in Chesterfield to meet Dave and our Director Carol Copeland to hear all about this show.
After the death of his financially replete father, Nicholas Nickleby and his family travel to London to seek assistance from his father's older brother Ralph. Taking an immediate dislike to his nephew, Ralph employs Nicholas under the sadistic Mr. Squeers and his interminable wife, owners of a boys' school in northern England. In the meantime, Ralph seeks to use Nicholas' beautiful sister Kate as a ploy to influence his investors. Discourse forces Nicholas to flee the school with the crippled Smike, an orphan with no memories of his former life before he was brought to Dotheboys' Hall. On their journey back to London they meet up with Vincent Crummles and his acting troupe, befriend Ralph's good-hearted secretary Newman Noggs, and ultimately rise over adversity.
There are many great characters and this will be a fantastic production to be involved in, so don't miss out.
