As part of the Cayman National Cultural Foundation’s (CNCF) 30th anniversary festivities celebrating the official opening of the Harquail Theatre, the 3rd Thursday of every month, beginning this December, will be dedicated to Culture Jam.

Culture Jam is an open mic night highlighting play and poetry readings, film nights and more.

The public is invited to the first Culture Jam at the Harquail Studio Theatre on Thursday 17 December for the screening of ‘The Sound of Music’, which is now celebrating its 50th Anniversary.

This screening is significant as the theatrical version was selected as the first major musical production held at the Harquail Theatre, which opened in December 1986.

Admission is free and refreshments will be on sale. All donations are welcome.

For tickets and information call the CNCF on 949-5477 or email


EDITOR’s Note: I had the honour to not only work backstage on this very first production but during its run took over the role of the horrible Nazi officer Herr Zeller. It was also notable for the late great actor Tony Rowlands very first Cayman Islands stage role. He played the Naval Captain and the Bishop that married Maria and Von Trapp.
