What The Dickens! in Broadway WHAT THE DICKENS!
What The Dickens! at John Hancock Hall
12/14-12/23/2018
?Celebrating the 10th Anniversary of ‘What the Dickens!’ and the 175th Anniversary of ‘A Christmas Carol’, Deborah Mason's Cambridge Youth Dance Company, with their roster of stellar guest artists (and some surprise appearances!), are bringing their acclaimed production of 'What the Dickens!' to John Hancock Hall for eight performances, Dec. 14 – 23, 2018. Weaving contemporary dance, ballet, tap, hip hop, flamenco, projections, narration and more, ‘What The Dickens!’ (a Boston Globe Top Holiday Pick) is an enchanting dance-theater rendition of Dickens’ classic, timely story of transforming greed into kindness and joy. Produced  by Deborah Mason and directed by Leslie Woodies (Broadway veteran and Boston Ballet alum), What The Dickens! bursts with “positive themes of humanity, love, inclusion and hope that will make your heart soar.” Mason says, “That's our message. This is our gift to Boston.” Performances Dec 14 - 23: Fridays at 7 pm, Saturdays at 2 pm & 7 pm, and Sundays at 2 pm. $65-$25. John Hancock Hall, 180 Berkeley St, Boston MA 02116. Look for tickets to be available starting in October; Visit cydp.org for details. ? WHAT THE DICKENS! is a great show for the family, both affordable and intimate. Boston Ballet alum Clyde Nantais returns as Ebenezer Scrooge, Ryan P. Casey and Jenny Oliver as Bob and Mrs. Cratchit, Yosi Karahashi as the Ghost of Christmas Future, along with other collaborations with artists, set building, and costume design. ? With original choreography and concept by David Drummond, other choreographic contributors include Celia Marino, Ian Berg, Ryan Casey, Khalid Hill, Deborah Mason, Rocky Mendes, Jenny Oliver, Jeryl Palana Pilapil, Reia Briggs Connor, and Leslie Woodies. “WHAT THE DICKENS! provides the aspiring dancers in the CYDP dance company an opportunity to work with professionals in the industry, and to perform in an evolving theatrical production. Above all, we love the dance’s positivity, and themes of empathetic humanity and the message of kindness and inclusion,” Mason says. “That is the message we want to keep sending.” CYDP is a supportive network which provides multiple opportunities for dancers and the community. Transcending the notion of "pre-professional training," CYDP uses dance as a platform to increase self-esteem, focus, teamwork, and creativity. CYDP opens its auditions to boys and girls, ages 10-20. Once accepted, students place into appropriate levels based on performance and focus; all new and returning dancers must audition for the company each year. ? CYDP dancers are mentored and supported throughout the audition process by CYDP staff. Many have gone on to professional careers, appearing in music videos with Janet Jackson and Beyonce among many others. They have also appeared in major tour productions from EVITA to BILLY ELLIOT to major motion pictures.
