AFTER a phenomenal showing in November 2018, Youth in Arts Theatre Company hosted its third showing of ‘Masquerade Master on January 18th at the National Cultural Centre, in celebration of our Nobel Laureates.
Masquerade Master’ is a Musical by Drenia Frederick, directed by Michelle Theobalds with music adapted and arranged by Barbara Ann Cadet.
This third showing catered to a variety of age groups.
Director of Training, Promotion and Development at the Cultural Development Foundation, Celeste Burton, said: “The production was superb! I thoroughly enjoyed it. I was impressed with the set and, of course, the young aspiring actors gave a wonderful account of themselves.
“The story of the play is indeed timely and thought-provoking and the directors delivered it in a manner that entertained the audience while getting them thinking about serious social issues that impact us even today.
“I applaud the efforts of Youth in Arts for engaging young people in positive, educational activities and for continuously promoting the Arts and Culture which have so many benefits for youth development.
“Congratulations to the producer Mrs June Frederick, her cast and all directors.”
YIA works to contribute to the preservation of St. Lucia’s rich culture and tradition through the arts and affirms that developing skills in the performing arts is developing skills for life, under the cultural stewardship of Mrs. June Frederick.
The group features a dynamic, talented and skilled cast.
In addition, the creative Miss Theobalds was ably supported by Assistant Director Shakira Roberts-Sankar, Jamie Forde as Musical Director and Roxanne Didier-Nicholas as Dance Director.
