Like many other artists and performance arts groups, the Marionettes Chorale — now nearly 200 strong over its adult, youth, and children’s choirs — has rented rehearsal space at church halls like All Saints Church and most recently Greyfriars Church (which was recently sold, then demolished); and paid a premium to store our vast library of sheet music, photo albums, CDs, videos, instruments, sets, props and costumes at warehouses and storage units.
As we look to ensure our organisational sustainability and how we can further contribute to the development of the performing arts industry and infrastructure in this landscape of boundless talent, there is a pressing need for a home of our own — a unique rehearsal and performance space which we can share with other organisations and artists.
Since 2001 with the establishment of the Marionettes Property Fund, we have been working to make this dream a reality, to create a multi-use rehearsal and performance space unlike any other already existing in Port of Spain or the country.

Several businesses have already pledged products and services (engineering, ACs, doors and windows, quantity surveying, pest control — see the deliverables to date section below). What we need most of all is building materials and services. Please send us an email at email@example.com or telephone Marionettes Manager Joanne Mendes at (868) 790-1751 if you can help!
