AVPA Production To Open November 12
November 5, 2009
The Culver City High School Academy of Visual and Performing Arts (AVPA) Theatre Department presents their first production of the season production calendar: Nicholas Nickleby, based on the novel by Charles Dickens and directed by AVPA’s new Creative Director of theatre, Sheila Silver.
The show runs Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, November 12 to November 21 at 7 p.m. with 1 p.m. matinees Sundays, November 15 and 22 at the Sony Pictures Theatre (The Blackbox), behind the Robert Frost Auditorium, 4401 Elenda Street in Culver City.
Nicholas Nickleby is one of Charles Dickens’ most widely read novels, tracing the life and adventures of the persistently optimistic Nicholas, who along with his forlorn mother and sister, comes to London to “seek his fortune.” Unschooled in the wily ways of the world, Nicholas is waylaid by the machinations of his sinister Uncle Ralph, who helps him to retain his first position as a teacher at Dotheboys School in Yorkshire.
