CCT Musical Held Over for Two More Performances


Feb. 21, 2007 – By popular demand, Caribbean Community Theatre has extended its production run of the musical comedy "Once Upon a Mattress" with two more shows this weekend: at 8 p.m., on Friday, Feb 23, and at 4 p.m., on Sunday, Feb. 25. The theater is located at No. 18 Orange Grove at Estate Orange Grove in Christiansted.
The musical is a very funny version of the classic fairy tale "The Princess and the Pea." Carol Burnett starred as the princess in the original Broadway production, and the script and score are very much in the style of the comic sketches for which she is famous.
It is directed by Lorraine Durand and Devin Hennessy, with music direction by Charles Lindberg and choreography by Ariel Fromer. The players include Leslie Highfield Carter as the princess, Melody Harris as the queen, Kasey Willard as the prince and Charles Jaquays as the king. Other cast members are Anna Fish, Derek Martin, Charles Braslow, Jesse Hunt and Frederick Handleman Kaitlyn Allen, Carisma Bishop, Marilyn Chakroff, Carole Doyle, Ariel Fromer, Megan Grant, Hank Hunt, Tish Mercier, Elizabeth Neville, Kate O'Neal, Heather Reedy, Starla Richter, and George Rockermann.
Tickets are $15 for adults and $8 for students, with discounts for CCT members. No reservations are accepted for this production, so arrive early for the best seating.
