Exhibit: Oliver Twist; or, The Parish Boy's Progress
This holiday season don’t miss the Historic Odessa Foundation’s 34th annual tradition of transforming an historic house into a Christmas exhibition of classic children’s literature.
The National Historic Landmark Corbit-Sharp House becomes wonderfully adapted into scenes based upon the cherished story, Oliver Twist; or, The Parish Boy’s Progress written by the treasured British author Charles Dickens (1812-1870) and published in 1838. Guests will be captivated with the classic room vignettes to include those of the chaotic streets of London, the repressive workhouse boardroom, the adored Mr. Brownlow’s house, the despised Bill Sikes flat, Fagan’s intriguing den, and of course the iconic workhouse. Continue to restore your spirit this Christmas season by touring this unforgettable holiday exhibition at the Historic Odessa Foundation.
