Authentic Carnival experience at Little Carib
A welcome addition to Carnival is Wednesday’s Little Carib fund-raiser titled Authentic Carnival Experience.
The event takes place from 1 pm–4 pm, admission to the show is $300 (US$50) and includes complimentary rum punch and food.
The Carib’s Trevor Jadunath revealed that the idea to produce the event came from attorney Martin Daly and was fine-tuned by the Carib’s management committee. He said: “This will be an annual event every Carnival Wednesday.”
The programme will showcase carnival of yesteryear, including traditional characters like the midnight robber and pierrot grenade as well as vintage “kaiso” and pan.
Daly told the T&T Guardian: “Little Carib Theatre and Folk House, a non-profit company registered under the Companies Act in accordance with instructions contained in the last will and testament of our dance and cultural icon Beryl Mc Burnie, is determined to keep her legacy alive.
“We are in the process of re-establishing a dance company to honour Beryl Mc Burnie’s name and legacy. The membership of the dance company comprises several young people from communities at risk.”
Daly added that the management at the Carib has embarked on a number of fund-raising efforts, in addition to today’s venture. He assured that all proceeds go towards the theatre.
