NickNicklebyDirected by Jill Cole

Winter 2012/2013

Touring Teesdale, The Castle Players with The Turrets presented an adaptation of Charles Dickens' masterpiece, The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby.

Performed in their own style of physical theatre, the epic story of Nicholas Nickleby was transferred to the stages of various village halls and other venues around Teesdale. The Players brought alive memorable characters such as Wackford Squeers, the Crummles, and of course...Smike.
