Production Notes

Mr. Dickens' Hat
Written and Composed by Michael Hollinger
Directed by K. O’Rourke

November 21 to November 24 and December 4 to December 8, 2024

In Victorian London, it is the shortest day and the longest night of the year—the Winter Solstice, December 21. Mr. Dickens’ Hat tells the tale of Kit who works in a hat shop eager to earn enough money to release her father from debtors' prison. The shop proudly displays the hat of the famous author. When two thieves attempt to steal the hat from the shop, it is up to Kit to foil their plans. The Chicago Theatre Review called the work “an extraordinary comic drama…there are also some beautiful original carols, written by Hollinger, that help create that Victorian feeling…It’s a wonderfully inventive piece of theatre…and destined to become another holiday classic.”

Recommended for ages 8+
