“O Christmas Three!” Performances Set Today (Dec. 1) at UVI on St. Thomas Campus

UVI Theatre entertained students at four area grade schools – part of the group is shown above at E. Benjamin Oliver Grade School – this week with performances from the children’s holiday musical “O Christmas Three!” The musical, written and directed by UVI Playwright-in-Residence Dr. Doug Larche, features more than 40 UVI students, faculty and staff members. It consists of a trilogy of children’s Christmas plays published by Dramatic Publishing and performed originally across the U.S. and Canada.

The trilogy consists of “Peas on Earth: A Birds-Eye View of Christmas,” “Dorcas the Christmas Duck (Or Vincent the Violet-Nosed Vulture) A Cautionary Christmas Tale” and “The Last Straw: A Christmas Fable.”

Two performances of the full trilogy are set for today – Thursday, Dec. 1 – at the UVI Administration and Conference Center on the St. Thomas campus. Those shows are set for 4 and 7:30 p.m. Admission is free for children and students of all ages. Adult admission is $10.
