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, email@example.com.
