Time: 2:00 pm-5:00 pm
Description:

$12 student rush tickets / $10 off advanced purchase. - A cast of 27 actors plays over 150 characters in this exhilarating two-part comic masterpiece that captures Dickens' genius for combining exuberant characters, theatrical spectacle, and captivating emotion. Winner of both the Tony Award ® for Best Play and The Olivier Award for Play of the Year, this epic event has never been produced in Central Florida.

Left penniless by the death of his father, young Nicholas Nickleby assumes responsibility for his mother and sister and seeks help from his Scrooge-like Uncle Ralph. Instantly disliking Nicholas, Ralph sends him to teach in a school run by cruel headmaster Wackford Squeers. Nicholas decides to escape, taking with him the orphan Smike, one of Squeers's most abused young charges, and the two embark on a series of adventurous encounters with an array of humanity's worst and best—greedy fools, corrupt lechers, cheery innocents, and selfless benefactors.

Will Nicholas truly escape from the evil clutches of Squeers? Can he save his sister from the exploitations of his uncle? Stay tuned!
