All the colours, faces, fetes, culture, bacchanal and outrageousness will be packaged into a weekly program that will capture the eyes and ears of locals and visitors alike. The unique brand of St. Kitts/Nevis’ National Carnival or Sugar Mas is what inspired the name of this program called “Sugar Madness”.
Sugar Madness is a 30 minute program comprising four segments; Plenty Action which highlights a different aspect of carnival in each episode, Plenty Fun which covers topics related to preparing for Carnival, a 1-minute information presentation called Sugar Rush and Sugar Factory, a give-away segment.
The four segments are all designed to please Carnival lovers. The video and engagement to be incorporated in the segments named after the Sugar Mas 41 slogan will educate and entertain. The Sugar Rush segment will present dates, times and notices directly from the National Carnival Committee or other Carnival stakeholders and the final segment gives viewers the chance to win tickets to attend their favourite Carnival shows.
The first episode will highlight the Mas Camps and troupes for this year’s street activities. Sugar Mas 41 boasts 7 registered Parade Troupes and 8 registered J’Ouvert Troupes and the excitement has created an enormous buzz for this year’s Carnival. Producer, Rolhensha Henry, says this was the perfect aspect of Carnival to start the ball rolling.
Ms. Henry said, “The Mas Camps have generated so much excitement very early and the competition is expected to be tight so we are basically riding the wave and bringing more competition and excitement. I am certain it will set the tone for what will be an unforgettable series of programs produced here in St. Kitts.
“Ms. Henry works along with Bevin Wilkinson who will co-host, direct and edit Sugar Madness. The team has already released a promotional video which can be viewed on youtube at www.youtube.com/watch?v=SsuR99Pz8UI.
Tune in to ZIZ Channel 5 on Saturday 1st December for the premiere episode of “Sugar Madness”. It’s Sugar Mas 41: Plenty Action, Plenty Fun!
