CCT continues its 34th season with Sarah & Addie, a collection of short Caribbean plays. There will be a total of seven performances over three weekends: Fridays and Saturdays at 8 PM, June 14-15, 21-22, 28-29, 2019, and one Sunday matinée on June 23 at 4 PM.
Written by the late Anton C. Teytaud in Crucian dialect, Sarah & Addie is a collage of entertaining vignettes centering on the island “market women” of the 1940s and 50s who were looked to as important sources of humorous commentary, philosophy and the daily wisdom of the times. It has been said that in New York the best-informed people are the taxi drivers. In other places it is the local barbers. On St. Croix, if you wanted to find out the latest gossip, you went to the market.
Sarah & Addie is directed by Eileen Bishop Des Jardins. Cast members include Lisa J. Charles, Amaris Chew, Jonelle Alexis Jackson, and Lesa Walcott (as Sarah & Addie), with Jacob Hebert, Kelly Pugh, Irene Simon and Michael Baker as customers, locals and tourists.
All performances of Sarah & Addie will be held at the Caribbean Community Theatre at #18 Estate Orange Grove in Christiansted, St. Croix. Tickets are sold at the box office at CCT prior to each performance: $20 for adults; $18 for senior citizens (age 65+); $15 for college students with ID; and $10 for students/children under age 18. No reservations accepted. Box office opens for ticket sales (CASH ONLY) at 7:15 PM on show nights, and at 3:15 PM for the Sunday matinée; arrive early for best seating. This performance is not recommended for children under age eight.
