by Charles Dickens
Adapted & Directed by Julie Beckman

]The unforgettable characters of Dickens come to life in this compelling story of a pragmatic family that is forever changed when a travelling circus comes to town. Bringing together Dickens’ delicious humor with stunning visual images and a powerful soundscape,”Hard Times” reveals how imagination can transform a world of rigidity and repression into a place of hope and love.
