The play, which is being staged by the National Players Theatre Movement, NPTM, will be titled, “Old Time Story”, which will be a full length production of a Trevor Rhone work of art.
According to the director of the NPTM, Mr. Clem Bouncin’ Williams, Old Time Story is one of the plays set for the English B CXC examinations in a couple months time. Williams said the play comes at a timely period and should be invaluable help for the students taking the English exams, while at the same time still providing quality entertainment for those who attend.
The director says the epic drama is filled with hilarious moments of great comedy but it also captures the life styles and attitudes of Caribbean people, in the 1960s. Though the story is set within the landscape of the Jamaica, its theme is very appropriate to any Caribbean country, explained the NPTM official.
For this production, a number of emerging stage stars will be blended by the experience of others. Members of the cast will include Unoma Allen, Jamella Fraser, Schneidman Warner, Shaq Bassue, Tristan Duncan, Nikkie Green, Makida Collins.
The play is being directed and produced by veteran Clem Williams himself, who since the 1970s, created many masterpieces for the Kittitian/Nevisian audiences.
The play will be staged at the Sir Cecil Jacobs Auditorium, at the Eastern Caribbean Central, Bird Rock, Basseterre, on Friday 20th, Saturday 21st, & Sunday 22nd April, 2012.
