Enter the world of Charles Dickens today as the International Printing Museum transforms into Fezziwig’s warehouse from 19th century London, populated with a number of Dickens’ characters. Pick up some pick-pocketing tips from Fagin and the Artful Dodger, but be mindful of your wallet. Micawber will demonstrate a health cure via an Electro-static Generator. See Miss Havisham have “Great Expectations,” as she instructs her ward Estella on the fine art of insulting gentlemen. “The Poet of Fleet Street” will compose a poem for you on something called the typewriter while a Victorian photographer will be doing “tin-type” photos. Guests can also enjoy a traditional British holiday lunch of bangers, gingerbread, and punch, along with period music. You can meet Queen Victoria and Father Christmas as well as Charles Dickens who will perform his story of “A Christmas Carol,” with the help of audience members. Performances of the play (which is advised for ages 10 and older with an adult) will be at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m., and reservations are required.
