Mas­quer­ade Master in The­atre

The Star (St. Lucia) - - ART - For more in­for­ma­tion and daily up­dates, fol­low Youth in Arts on so­cial me­dia. Face­book: Youth in Art­sYIA The­atre Com­pany and In­sta­gram @youthi­nart­slu.

The Na­tional Cul­tural Cen­tre will come alive on Novem­ber 21 and 22 with an in­cred­i­ble, the­atri­cal ex­pe­ri­ence. Youth in Arts (YIA) will host its an­nual pro­duc­tion and for 2018 fea­tures 'Mas­quer­ade Master', a mu­si­cal by Dre­nia Fred­er­ick, di­rected by Michelle Theobalds with mu­sic adapted and ar­ranged by Bar­bara Ann Cadet.

YIA works to con­trib­ute to the preser­va­tion of Saint Lu­cia's rich cul­ture and tra­di­tion through the arts, and af­firms that de­vel­op­ing skills in the per­form­ing arts is de­vel­op­ing skills for life. The group fea­tures a dynamic, tal­ented and skilled cast. In ad­di­tion, the creative Miss Theobalds is ably sup­ported by as­sis­tant di­rec­tor Shakira Roberts-Sankar, Jamie Forde as mu­si­cal di­rec­tor and Rox­anne Di­dier-Ni­cholas as dance di­rec­tor.

Mas­quer­ade Master is pre­sented in two show­ings. The grand open­ing on Wed­nes­day Novem­ber 21 fea­tures a cock­tail re­cep­tion hosted by Kiedel Sonny, priced at $65. Tick­ets for the sec­ond per­for­mance on Thurs­day Novem­ber 22 cost $45.

Michelle sums up ‘Mas­quer­ade Master' in this way: “While the pro­duc­tion pays ho­mage to a unique part of our cul­tural iden­tity by way of the ‘mas­quer­ade', it ul­ti­mately speaks to a much big­ger mes­sage. It res­onates a pow­er­ful mes­sage of free­dom, and the many in­ter­pre­ta­tions of the con­cept of free­dom. I think the au­di­ences will have many take­aways and mo­ments of de­light so we en­cour­age peo­ple to come live that ex­pe­ri­ence.”

Tick­ets for 'Mas­quer­ade Master' are avail­able for pur­chase at The Cell out­lets.
