THEATRE COMES TO BRIDGETOWN
Theatre lovers will get an opportunity to see the island???s best dramatists in action when the Ministry of Tourism teams up with the Barbados Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI), to host Theatre Comes to Bridgetown next month.
The event, slated for Thursday, September 12, commencing at 7:00 p.m., will be a fitting climax to the BCCI???s Bridgetown Alive concept which began on July 18.
According to acting Senior Tourism Development Officer and HIV Coordinator in the Ministry, Madge Dalrymple, the event is designed to raise awareness about HIV through the use of drama and the importance of Historic Bridgetown to the island???s heritage tourism offerings.
During the show, there will be performances by Lighthouse Productions, Stage 1 Productions, Kick Dust Productions and Shoestring Productions.
Shoppers in Bridgetown will be treated to one dramatic piece by each group in areas such as Rockers Alley located between CIBC First Caribbean International and Colombian Emeralds Corporate Office on Broad Street; Shepherd Street; and in front of Republic Bank on Broad Street.
Further information on the presentation may be obtained by contacting Ms. Dalrymple at 430-7500 or 430-7520.
