Masquerade Master in Theatre
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.
