Caribbean Community Theatre’s (CCT) production of the musical comedy revue “Secrets Every Smart Traveler Should Know” will open on Friday, Feb. 9, and run for three weekends through Sunday, Feb. 25.

        This musical revue features songs and comedic sketches written by Douglas Bernstein, Francesca Blumenthal, Michael Brown, Barry Creyton, Lesley Davison, Addy Fieger, Stan Freeman, Dave Frishberg, Murry Grand, Glen Kelly, Jay Leonhart, Denis Markell, Nick Santa Maria, and was inspired by the best-selling book by Wendy Perrin, “Secrets Every Smart Traveler Should Know” (Fodor).

People who has ever traveled anywhere by boat, plane, train or bus and lived to tell about it, this is the show for them. This hilarious revue offers travel tips and cautionary tales certain to tickle the ribs – or chill the spine – of anyone who has ever set foot outside of his or her own hometown. Everything from pesky customs officials to volcanoes and a hapless business traveler’s lost luggage. One segment lambastes automated flight reservation systems as a man tries to book a flight with “Miracle Airlines.”
