The nightmarish world of Dotheboys Hall from Nicholas Nickleby is brought to vivid life for a modern class of rebellious students in this highly original pop adaptation of Charles Dickens' celebrated novel.
An English teacher leads his class in a dramatic re-creation of the story of Nicholas, his friend Smike, and the tyrannical headmaster, Mr. Squeers, to teach them a lesson about learning, standing together, and good fellowship.

The acclaimed Paper Mill Playhouse production of Children Of Eden (which was compared favorably in the press to The Lion King) used several children in the chorus, who played many of the animals by means of puppetry, costumes and masks, to great effect.
