Birthday treat for Dickens with David Copperfield

EVENT: David Copperfield

VENUE: Joseph Rowntree Theatre, York

DATES: Tuesday to Saturday at 7.30pm and Saturday at 2.30pm

All the tradition of a Dickens classic but with much, much more. York Stage Musicals is celebrating Charles Dickens’ 200th birthday with a new stage adaptation of his favourite novel David Copperfield - a story filled with adventure, excitement and wonder. Like a Dickensian Harry Potter, David leads us on a magical journey, encountering villains and challenges that will have you on the edge of your seat.

The Joseph Rowntree stage will be transformed into a magical playground as David sets sail on the high seas in a playful world full of puppets, donkeys, music and invention.

Don’t miss this wonderful new version especially adapted for audiences of all ages by Deborah McAndrew.

This brilliant new adaptation features music by Northern Broadside actor/director Conrad Nelson. Based on traditional sea shanties and Victorian music hall songs, he creates a beautiful musical landscape to illustrate Dickens’ tale of life and love – based firmly on the author’s own experiences.
