Announcing the 4th summer season of the Anguilla Youth Summer Theatre Program! Eleanor Stacey ( writes:

Yes, we are in business again, so clear your month of July for the Apple Theatre Company summer show. This year we will be in session from July 9th through August 2nd. Auditions will be held on Thursday, July 5th at a location yet to be announced (but watch out for more information!). Performances will be July 30th and 31st and August 1st and 2nd, 2001.

This year's summer musical is "Once On This Island" - a fantastic tale of love, loss, and redemption. Based on a novel by Trinidadian author Rosa Guy, the story surrounds the life of Ti Moune, a young girl who falls in love with a man she is not destined to have. The fable is told by a group of local people who sit together during a hurricane waiting for it to end. The story is an colourful and imaginative illustration of why they need not be afraid of the storm.

There are many interesting characters in this musical show. In addition to Ti Moune, there is Daniel (the man she loves), Ti Moune's endearing parents Mama Euralie and Tonton, a handful of mischievous and comic deities, and a whole bunch of parts that flow in and our of the story. For those who want to be in the spotlight onstage, there are many parts to play with loads of opportunities to sing, act, and dance. No experience is necessary! Just bring your interest in performance and a willingness to learn. There are parts for girls and parts for guys, and parts for people who just simply want to be onstage and be part of the group. Everyone is welcome!

Not only are there onstage parts, but this year there are also plenty of important offstage positions to fill. Ever wanted to learn to market a show, focus and run lights, build and decorate sets and costumes, or throw a great party? If so, this is your chance! These roles are just a few of the many vital administrative parts that help to put a show on its feet. Take this opportunity to work alongside theatre professionals from New York and Canada.

Everyone between the ages of 12 and 20 is welcome to take part in the production (but don't worry if you are a little outside the mark in either direction!). Past participants in the program have returned each summer out of their enthusiasm for the show and their love for theatre. One student's comment: "I never knew how much fun theatre could be before taking part in the summer program. Being in the show has opened my eyes to the world of theatre and I love it!"

Pass this on to your friends who you think might be interested, and if you would like more information, feel free to email me.
