CCT opens its 25th season with an original play written by Tom Zeigler. Sundays at Eleven is set in a small town in Western Virginia in 1965, and the story focuses on two Christian Churches — the all-white Fellowship Church and the all-black Brotherhood Church. The struggles these congregations face parallel in a small way the painful dismantling of racial segregation that was escalating throughout the country during this period of United States history.
There will be six evening performances of this play on Friday and Saturday, November 6-7, 13-14, and 20-21, 2009 at 8 PM, as well as a matinee on Sunday November 15 at 4 PM. Tom Ziegler directs the cast of Sundays at Eleven: Joe Bradford, Charles Braslow, Sonja Cirilo, Daniel Deane, Lionel Downer, Michelle Greene, Fred Handleman, Chenelle Howard, Derek Martin, Sandra Moore, Dean Roberts, Maren Roebuck, Mark Saladino, Ethan Wyatt, and Shirley Ziegler.
All performances of Sundays at Eleven will be at the Caribbean Community Theatre at #18 Estate Orange Grove in Christiansted, St. Croix. Tickets are sold at the door: $15.00 for adults; $8.00 for students. No reservations accepted; arrive early for best seating. Not recommended for children under age 8.
This production is jointly supported by a grant from the Virgin Islands Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts in Washington, DC, a federal agency.
