Charles Dickens—with Group Of Boys

Authors in the Schools

The Riverside Dickens Festival, through the sponsorship of local organizations such as the Riverside Chamber of Commerce, offers free performances of one-man shows featuring local actors impersonating authors.  Currently, we offer Paul Jacques in “Meet Mr. Dickens” to local middle schools during Fall semester, and Travis Rhett Wilson in “Meet Mr. Poe” to local high schools during Spring semester.  Only a limited number of performances of each show can be offered.

If you are interested in hosting one of these performances at your school, contact Susan Purkart, Education Committee Chairperson, at
