Shakespeare in Paradise Opens!

Tonight, October 1st, is the official opening of the second annual Shakespeare in Paradise theatre festival.

Opening the festival will be the premiere performance of Woman Take Two and closing the festival, on October 11th, will be the final performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

In between those two festival signature productions we have six other exciting offerings:

God’s Trombones
The World is my Home – The Life of Paul Robeson
Dat Bahamian Ting
One Flesh
Horn of Plenty featuring Indio
An Evening with Derek Burrows – Storyteller and Musician

As of this posting there are some tickets still available for the final three performances of Woman Take Two but they are going fast. Some $25 tickets are still available for tonight’s premiere (wine will be served). After tonight and the two performances on Saturday, Woman Take Two will be closing to make room for A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Also on Saturday is our play reading series at Chapter One Bookstore and the first performance of An Evening with Derek Burrows – Storyteller and Musician. There will only be two performances of this show (the other on Saturday, October 9th) so don’t let this one slip away.

Their may be some seats remaining for the bargain opening night performance of The World is my Home – The Life of Paul Robeson thanks to the US Embassy who kindly purchased that evening and have offered discounts tickets to the Bahamian public for only $5.

We suggest that you purchase you tickets early as there is limited seating for some of the productions. The Box Office is at The Dundas, Monday through Saturday and will be open from 10:00am until 4:00pm. The telephone numbers are 393-3728, 394-7179 and 431-7197.

God’s Trombones is the only production playing on Sunday, October 3rd and that performance will be at St. Matthew’s Church, will feature Rev’d Don Haynes and will start at 7:00pm.

Monday brings us the premiere performance of two of our guest productions, Dat Bahamian Ting, all the way from London and playing at Epworth Hall and the already mentioned The World is my Home – The Life of Paul Robeson at the National Art Gallery. There will also be the second performance of God’s Trombones, this time at Bahamas Harvest Church and featuring Pastor Mario Moxey.
