The Misericordia Players will present a dramatic adaptation of the Charles Dicken’s novel, “Nicholas Nickleby,” Nov. 8-11 in Lemmond Theater at Walsh Hall. Written by prize-winning playwright Tim Kelly, the coming-of-age Victorian tale offers a blend of comedy, mystery and melodrama thanks to a parade of colorful characters. It centers on the life of a young man who must support his mother and sister after his father dies. His quest leads him to a job as a teacher in a school run by the humorously wicked and infamous villain Wackford Squeers. Performances are at 8 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 8, through Saturday, Nov. 10, and at 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 11. The cost is $5 for general admission and $3 for seniors, Misericordia students and alumni. Tickets are available at the door and are on sale at the Misericordia Box Office or online at www.misericordia.edu/nickleby. Rehearsing a scene for “Nicholas Nickleby,” from left, are Olivia Katulka, West Wyoming; Eddie Reynolds, Harding; Breann Hunsinger, Kelayres and Adam Ercolani, Plains Twp. Zoe LaPorte, West Pittston, also is a member of the cast.
