Rehearsals are now underway for this classic story. We are looking to cast immediately for a few remaining roles!
Pip, a country boy who is apprenticed to become a blacksmith, is summoned to the home of an eccentric spinster to be a playmate for her young ward, Estella. Pip soon falls for her but she treats him with cold indifference. Consequently he longs to be turned into a gentleman. The surprise ending is warm and delightfully satisfying. Dickens' sly humor is very affecting on stage.
Mr Jaggers: A "gentleman" lawyer from London - part lawyer part violent mobster. Mr Jaggers takes Pip under his wing at the bidding of Ms. Haversham. Ages 30s-60's. A functional English accent (proper/RP) is a plus. Imposing figure that can switch from refined gentleman to unthinkable criminal in an instant.
