ANNOUNCING: The Dickens Project!

We are in the waning months of the Dickens Bicentenary Year of celebration, and what better way to wrap up that year than with a tribute to his masterwork A Christmas Carol.  StoryFest Events will be launching The Dickens Project as just such a tribute. 

Sponsored by Stories Unlimited! and the Community Virtual Library, The Dickens Project will be an interactive environment for the presentation of A Christmas Carol which will be open to presentations of that work in whole, part, or adapted (as long as it is true to the original story) beginning December 14th through December 26th.  On December 27th, the last day of the Project, the venue will be open to "alternate version" presentations and tributes to the classic.

Any and all voice performers in Second Life are welcomed.  Presentations may be solo, duets, or larger groups of voices.  They must be live and in voice.  StoryFest Events will take care of booking time slots and promoting (though presenters are encouraged to promote through any avenues that have as well) and having our finger on ban/eject when needed. The Dickens Project will be located in Info Island in the Community Virtual Library Estate, and tips to benefit the CVL will be encouraged.  More about tipping later.

Here is the approximate Project Timeline ....
  • Dec 5 - Deadline for Presenter Requests
  • Dec 1 to 13 - install components of the environment
  • Dec 10 to 13 - Make available for presenter preview
  • Dec 14 - Opening Day
  • Dec 27 - Alternate Versions Day, and then it all goes Ba-Bye!
Interested?  Apply to Caledonia Skytower by notecard in world for a presenter slot by December 5th.  Be sure to include the times and dates you would prefer to perform.

We hope that this year's project will be well recceived well enough for it to be a beta test of a more expanded project in December 2013 ... Lord and the Lindens willing.
