Day Seven at Shakespeare in Paradise

Two days left before the closing of the first annual Shakespeare In Paradise theatre festival.

Yesterday, One White One Black and Music of The Bahamas played a double bill at The Dundas. A few people, mostly parents with children, skipped the first show because of the “C” rating and then came in for Music of The Bahamas. There were good size houses for both productions. The Tempest was almost full and there was a very good crowd out at Nirvana for what amounted to Dinner Theatre. Ken Corsbie (Caribbean Voices) invited Pat Rahming and Anku Sa Ra to join his show and the crowd was very appreciative.

This afternoon we feature two matinee performances. Zora will be performed for the last time at this festival, at 3:00p.m., at The Dundas, and a double bill at The Hub will feature the final performances of One White One Black (Rated C) and Love In Two Acts, also at 3:00p.m.

Tonight we will also present the final performance of our signature production, William Shakespeare’s The Tempest, at The Dundas starting at 8:00p.m.

The Box Office has announced that they will open at 11:00am today for people interested in purchasing tickets for any of the Sunday shows. You can call the Box Office at 393-3728.

Reserved tickets for the matinees not collected by 12:00p.m. will be sold on a first come first served basis.

Reserved tickets for the 8:00p.m. showing of The Tempest not collected by 4:00p.m. will also be sold on a first come first served basis.

Shakespeare In Paradise will come to a close on Monday.

    I am so glad that both my kids were so fortunate to experience Shakespeare In Paradise, not only as performers (Music Of The Bahamas), but also as a part of the audience (zora). Those who missed the festival, missed a great learning experience in both culture and entertainment. Hats off to Dr. Nicolette Bethel her huband Phillip A. Burrows, along with the cast and crew who made this production all possible.
    The kids had fun, the audience had fun!
