Entertainment Staff Information

Entertainment Director: Cat Taylor
Cat is the Entertainment Director for the Great Dickens Christmas Fair. As a show director,  musician, and event producer, she understands performing from both sides of the equation and endeavors to create a supportive and exciting, creative environment. Cat also founded and administers the Missive List, keeping everyone informed about workshops, auditions, and various details of our version of Victorian London. If you are interested in creating or performing in a stage show or other group, please contact her at [email protected]

Street Theatre Director: Robert Young
In addition to portraying Charles Dickens, Robert will once again be our Street Theatre Director. In that capacity he will not only oversee the performers playing specific characters whether historical, built 'whole cloth', or from the books, but also the entire tapestry of how all of the performers interact when offstage. This includes the stage actors who must remember whom they are portraying when they leave the stages. He will also be coordinating the special performance groups who come in from dance troupes, schools, etc. for special one day performances. You can reach him at [email protected]

Special Note for Caroling Groups & Other Single-Day "Special Performance" Groups

Do you have a costumed caroling group or other Victorian-appropriate performing group that would like to perform at the Dickens Fair for one very special day? Please contact Robert Young at [email protected] and be prepared to send in a picture, an audio or video recording, and a 19th century-appropriate repertoire list. Please have a first and second choice for the day you would like to attend.
