Caribbean Community Theatre - "What a Way to Make a Living!!!"

Caribbean Community TheatreCaribbean Community Theatre, celebrating its 31st season, is proud to present 9 to 5 The Musical in February 2016. The tale of three female co-workers who concoct a plan to get even with their sexist boss is sure to be a crowd pleaser, with comical and sprightly songs written by Dolly Parton to complement the script by Patricia Resnick. "Backwoods Barbie," "Cowgirl's Revenge," "One of the Boys" and "Get Out and Stay Out" are notable additions to the popular title song from the movie. 9 to 5 will run for three weekends starting Friday, February 5 (Fridays & Saturdays at 8 PM) through Saturday, February 20, with a matinee at 4 PM on Sunday, February 14.

9 to 5 is co-directed by Eileen Bishop Des Jardins and Jamile Smith, with Patrick Baron as Music Director, and features (former Senator) Judi Buckley, Janney Gerson and Natalie Hollins as the vengeful trio, Sean Bailey as their boss, and a talented cast of singers, dancers and actors as their fellow office workers. Ticket prices for 9 to 5 The Musical are $25 for adults (with discounts for seniors, students and CCT members).

CCT will also present an After Dinner Dessert Cabaret on Saturday, March 12 at 8 PM. Seating will be cabaret style, an ideal opportunity to share an evening of songs and skits with friends.

Caribbean Community TheatreIn March, the comedy Rumors, by award-winning playwright Neil Simon, opens with the first of four couples arriving at their friends' townhouse for a wedding anniversary celebration, only to discover the host lying unconscious and unresponsive in his bedroom and his wife missing. As the other guests arrive, confusion and miscommunications mount, and the evening spins off into classic farcical hilarity, as you'd expect from a playwright of whom it has been said: "Neil Simon makes people laugh a lot!" - USA Today. Rumors will be directed by Michael Baker, who helmed last year's Barefoot in the Park. Performances will be held March 25 through April 9. Tickets for Rumors cost $20 (with discounts for seniors, students and CCT members).

All performances are held at the CCT theater at #18 Estate Orange Grove in Christiansted, St. Croix. CCT's musical productions are always popular, so visit the theater website:, call 34340-778-1983, or email to purchase tickets in advance.

For 30 years, Caribbean Community Theatre has provided intimate, small-scale theatre projects, educational and community outreach programs, and co-production with other artistic groups on St. Croix.

Thought-provoking works, such as Real Women Have Curves and A Raisin in the Sun, have shared the bill with comedies; musicals, such as Jesus Christ Superstar, RENT, and The Color Purple swell audience attendance and invite participation by local choreographers and dance schools. An ongoing Outreach effort offers an after-school theatre program to students ages 6 to 15 - The Calico Cat Company.

Local authors have works produced as well-Sundays at Eleven, Tom Ziegler's play about the rivalry between an all-white church congregation and an all-black one, and Anton Teytaud's Sarah & Addie, showcasing the lusty humor to be found in West Indian marketplace gossip.
