Tattle Tales Will Delight

 The Cada Players’ 21st production, “Tattle­Tales”, will showcase the talents of BVI residents in dance, puppetry and music at UP’s Cineplex Ballroom this weekend and next weekend. Charm­ing, life-sized puppets designed by acclaimed U.S. Master Puppeteer, Richard Bay, will bring three rich African fables to life amid vibrant drums, beautiful dancers, big screen projections and wit­ty story-telling.
There are eight opportunities to see the show, with two performances scheduled for Sat­urday, May 21st, two for Sunday the 22nd, and a repeat of these shows the following week-end, May 28th and 29th at 3pm and 8pm each day. The 3:00 pm performance on the Sundays are planned especially for young children, so make this a fam­ily affair. In keeping with the drama group’s long tradition of “acting up” for good causes, “Tattle­Tales” proceeds will benefit Hands on Volunteers for Green VI and Haiti.
Tickets are $20 Youth/Seniors, $30 Adults, $40 VIP, and are available at Vanterpool’s, Studio One, Tortola Express, House, and from any of the show’s 30 cast members. For more information, call 494-2324, cadabvi@yahoo.com.
