I wish I could be with you in person to celebrate Mr. Dickens’ 200 birthday but you are warmly congratulated for choosing the very best way to rejoice in his memory; by acting in a play. How he would have loved to be in it with you. Have a wonderful time and when you go home, continue to read his books, read them aloud and you will be taken into a brilliant parallel universe, even more thrilling that the one in Harry Potter!
Love to you all from ‘Professor Sprout’”
