MONDAY, December 10th at 7pm: A CHILD'S CHRISTMAS IN WALES and Other Holiday Favorites

Aoife once again visits  the sea-town corner of Dylan Thomas' memory to share the cold and headlong moon, the lynx-eyed cats, the fire, the bat-black, snow-white belfries, and finally the close and holy darkness of this perfect Christmas. This and some poems of the season, for an evening's celebration.

Presented live in Voice.

Join Aoife Lorefield, Da5id Abbot, Kayden Oconnell, VT Torvalar, and Caledonia Skytower for a wide selection from the works of Charles Dickens, including: David Copperfield, Great Expectations, Nicholas Nickleby, and Oliver Twist, live in Voice.


@ 2:30pm - Music with DJ Elrik Merlin
Whether classic rock, celtic flavorings, classical compositions, or even bagpipes, DJ Elrik Merlin always delivers a set that is packed with fun and interest, adding his great knowledge of music and recording histories to the brew.  Come dance and enjoy today's journey in Dickens Square, live on stream.

Then take a turn around the region on Bay Rum Royal, explore the shadowy corners of the Merchants Alley, or sink your toes into the ooze at the southern shore. Plenty to see and discover!

SATURDAY, December 8th at THE DICKENS PROJECT

Idle Rogue Productions presents an encore of the show that packed LEA 7 on Opening Day!


Victorian Christmas, Steampunk romp, and a whole lot of Woman Power!  That's what this show presents, along with superb choreography and staging.  There will only be one more opportunity to catch this show after today's performance.

Come early: the first performance packed the region before half hour!
~ Noon: Seating Begins (be nice to your cache and come, let it load and settle while you enjoy some pre-show music)
~ 1pm: Performance Curtain
~ 2pm: Post-Show Dance Party

Then stick around to explore the region: take a romantic carriage tour or hot air balloon ride, collect gifts.

THURSDAY December 6th at 7pm: THE SANTA CLAUSE pt1

"Believing is Seeing..."
THE SANTA CLAUSE pt1
When Santa Claus accidentally tumbles off their roof, Scott Calvin and his son, Charlie, don't know what to do, until they find a small business card in Santa's pocket that reads: "If something should happen to me, put on my suit. The reindeer will know what to do." So Scott and Charlie take off on an amazing adventure in Santa's sleigh, delivering gifts and spreading cheer. But little do the Calvins realize, once you're Santa, you're Santa for life!

WEDNESDAY, December 5th at 7pm: HANUKKAH TALES

It was a miracle ... light when light should have ceased.

Caledonia shares tales ancient and more recent around the Jewish holiday. 

Look to the light, the light in the window,
The simple lit candles that shimmer and shine.
The message is clear as simple lit candles,
The passion for freedom is yours and is mine.

– Rabbi Dan Grossman

TUESDAY, December 4th: Events at Both The Dickens Project & on Holly Kai

It's a big day with lots of possibilities for story-full experiences:


@ Noon in Dickens Square at The Dickens Project: RUSSELL EPONYM with Music, Stories, and Poetry, live in stream. https://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/LEA7/128/131/22

@6PM in the CVL Resource Center at The Dickens Project: VCARA Reads! "The Christmas Tree" The Community Virtual Library and SJSU's VCARA program present their first ever storytelling event. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/LEA7/237/61/21

@7PM back home at Seanchai Library: EVERYTHING ON A WAFFLE
Faerie Maven-Pralou presents the conclusion of Polly Horvath's award-winning tale of an orphan and
a singularly unique restaurant. Kate Bowzer, the owner of The Girl on the Red Swing (a restaurant where everything is served on a waffle) takes Primrose under her wing. She teaches her how to cook, doesn’t patronize or chastise her, even when she puts her guinea pig too close to the oven and it catches fire. And so Primrose, in her own perceptive way, develops wisdom beyond her years and a belief system we could all do well to adopt – including the idea that hope is not crazy. Presented live in Voice.

SATURDAY, December 1st @ 2pm slt: TEA TIME with Charles Dickens


The whole difference between construction and creation is exactly this: that a thing constructed can only be loved after it is constructed; but a thing created is loved before it exists. 
~ Charles Dickens

Well, to be honest, Charles will not be joining us. But his work will be. Caledonia shares selections from Little Dorrit, A Tale of two Cities, and Great Expectations, live on stream in Dickens Square.
