Sept. 6, 2002 — The University of the Virgin Islands Bulletin Board issued today includes these announcements:
Reichhold Announces New Dates for St. Croix Presentation of "For Better, For Worse"
UVI's Reichhold Caribbean Repertory Company has announced that presentations of its hit comedy, "For Better, For Worse," have been rescheduled for Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 28 and 29, on St. Croix at the Educational Complex.
Shows originally slated for September 7 and 8 were postponed due to casting changes. "We lost three of the original cast members for various reasons," said
David Edgecombe, the play's author and director of the Reichhold Center for the Arts. "And I want to make sure the St. Croix run of the play will be every bit as good as it was on St. Thomas."
The play enjoyed an extended run earlier this summer on St. Thomas, where it drew rave reviews. Its presentation on St. Croix will give the University's theater enthusiasts a chance to strengthen ties between the two campuses, according to Edgecombe. "We are looking forward to meeting with UVI students who are in the process of starting a theatre company on the St. Croix campus," he said.
Tickets purchased for the September 7 and 8 shows will be honored for the rescheduled performances. Individuals seeking refunds are asked to contact the Reichhold Center Box Office at 693-1559.
Tickets are $15 for adults and $8 for students. They are now on sale at the
UVI Bookstore on the St. Croix Campus, at Sam Goody's in Sunny Isle Shopping Center and at John E's Gallery in Christiansted. For more information contact Reichhold Marketing Manager Dionne Carty Jackson at 693-1559.
