Chan­nel now part of in­no­va­tive Flow Sports ‘Premier Pack’

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Who ever said this gen­er­a­tion is not con­nected with the past is sadly mis­taken. On November 3rd, Kid­diCrew The­atre will demon­strate how cul­tur­ally in­tact the cur­rent gen­er­a­tion is. The the­atre youth group was formed to con­tinue the Folk Re­search Cen­tre ini­tia­tive to re­vive the Saint Lu­cian’s tra­di­tional mas­quer­ade by pro­duc­ing a De­cem­ber mas­quer­ade street pa­rade. The mis­sion con­tin­ued with the man­age­ment of ‘Proj Masq Camp’ since 2010, which sees them work­ing with pri­mary schools for an an­nual pa­rade ev­ery De­cem­ber 13th.

Last Thurs­day the pro­duc­tion com­pany hosted an of­fi­cial press launch an­nounc­ing their pro­duc­tion for 2016. Be­fore an­nounc­ing the de­tails of the show, the pro­duc­tion man­age­ment in­di­cated the ‘Kid­diCrew’s mis­sion of bring­ing to the­atre, the works of Rod­er­ick Wal­cott and the im­por­tance of do­ing so. Started in 2015, they have em­barked on a task of pro­duc­ing a play from his works over the next 5 years. The group, which is made up of chil­dren from agees 8 to 17 years, have al­ready re­ceived bless­ings from the Wal­cott fam­ily, the writer, UWI Open Cam­pus and the Cul­tural De­vel­op­ment Foun­da­tion.

This year, on November 3rd and 4th at 8 p.m. the Na­tional Cul­tural Cen­tre, will come alive when the Kid­diCrew The­atre proudly presents their sec­ond pro­duc­tion en­ti­tled: ‘The Devil at Christ­mas. The play’s pro­ducer, June Fred­er­ick stated that this play “has great im­por­tance to our cul­ture as it deals with the tra­di­tion ‘Devil at Christ­mas Time’, which is Papa Jab (a.k.a. Toes) who has an en­tourage of peo­ple. They have ac­tu­ally taken the tra­di­tion and Rod­er­ick Wal­cott cre­ated a story around it; it’s ac­tu­ally the death of Papa Jab, pass­ing on the man­tle to some­one else.”

All are in­vited to come out and sup­port the young­sters in their pro­duc­tion.
