CCT continues its 29th season with the zany comedy Duck Hunter Shoots Angel. There will be seven performances of this play over three weekends: Friday and Saturday, March 21-22, 28-29, and April 4-5, 2014 at 8 PM, and Sunday, March 30 at 4 PM.
The script by popular American writer Mitch Albom (acclaimed author of “Tuesdays with Morrie”) tells the uproarious story of two bumbling Alabama brothers who have never managed to shoot a duck but are persuaded that they have mistakenly gunned down an angel. As they lament their fates in a murky swamp, they are chased by a cynical tabloid journalist and his reluctant photographer, who don’t believe any of it – until feathers, wings and a tiara are discovered. According to reviewer Chris Jones of Variety, “Duck Hunter works because it’s sufficiently audacious to surprise and sufficiently familiar to comfort.”
Charles Braslow directs a cast of CCT regulars and newcomers including Michael Baker, Ryan Burton, Richard Clark, Tony Emanuel, Davina England, Robb Kuczynski, Tamla O’Brien, Glen Wells and Colin Wolfe.
All performances of Duck Hunter Shoots Angel will be held at the Caribbean Community Theatre at #18 Estate Orange Grove in Christiansted, St. Croix. Tickets are sold in advance online at www.cct.vi, or at the box office at CCT prior to each performance: $20 for adults; $18 for senior citizens (age 65+); and $15 for college students with ID. No children under age 16 will be admitted. Box office opens for ticket sales at 7:15 PM on show nights, and at 3:15 PM for the Sunday matinée; arrive early for best seating.
