For 50 years, faithful patrons and lovers of the Christmas season have said: “Christmas begins with the Marionettes”, with orders for tickets coming in as early as October. Ever devoted to what has become a national tradition, the BP Marionettes return to Queen’s Hall the first weekend of December (Thursday 5th – Sunday 8th) with “A Christmas Jubilee”, and tickets officially go on sale today!
Featuring their three dynamic choirs – their veteran adult, vibrant Youth and irresistible Children’s choirs – the BP Marionettes continue their 50th anniversary celebrations with a programme of audience Christmas favourites, and the exciting world premiere of Assistant Musical Director Dr. Roger Henry’s powerful new six-minute work, “There was a Man Sent From God”.
Tickets for this anticipated concert event go on sale today, Sunday 24th November, from members (firstname.lastname@example.org and 790-1751); and at the Queen’s Hall Box Office from tomorrow, Monday 25th November (10am–6pm, Monday–Saturday, tel 624-1284), at $150 open and $200 reserved.
There is a special early bird discount of 10% off all tickets to the Thursday opening night performance if purchased by Sunday 1st December.
The series also introduces two new corporate partners for the BP Marionettes, who join the their title sponsor, BP Trinidad & Tobago (bpTT) in support of the series and the Marionettes’ 50th anniversary: Sweet 100.1FM, TalkCity 91.1FM, C-TV (of the Caribbean New Media Group, CNMG); and FLOW (Columbus Communications), on whose Local On Demand platform several of the Marionettes’ most popular concerts will soon be available via pay-per-view, with all proceeds going to the Marionettes Property Fund. Explained bpTT President Norm Christie: “BPTT began its partnership with Marionettes in 1972, and our commitment has endured because we share the belief that arts and culture can be used as a powerful agent for self development.”
Together, bpTT and the Marionettes once again present their cherished free matinée for institutions which care for our nation’s seniors, orphans, special needs children and adults, and our society’s most vulnerable. “For many, the Marionettes’ Christmas show marks the traditional launch of the local Christmas season. The highlight for me each year is the opportunity to join in working with my fellow employees and other volunteers in hosting the special matinée,” Christie elaborated.
