Read what playgoers are saying!

"Always a wonderful experience. I have never attended at play at Pistarckle and not been moved. For a small community theater, it has a heart, a pulse that draws in you and just doesn't let you go. Such a blessing to this community!"

"Attended the opening night for St. Thomian playwright, Susan Hunter's, "Catch and Keep" last evening. It's a comedic portrayal of the oh-so-familiar, laughable moments most of us encounter in our experiences of life here on the Rock!  Cleverly written with a subtle message: it's not the color of our skin, but rather, the complexion of our heart that catches and keeps us where we end up in life.  Hats off to cast and crew at PISTARCKLE Theater. Bravo! Keep 'em coming!"

"Hey STT peeps, go this weekend to the theater at Tillett Garden and watch the play " Catch and Keep"! It was absolutely hysterical, a story about a woman who inherits a home here on St Thomas and the play is about what happens to her when she moves down here to the island. Lot of jokes only islanders can catch because it's so true and accurate! Promise you, you will have an amazing time!! Mark Abbott, , you and the entire crew were AMAZING in this play!! I have to come back and watch you guys again!!"

Thanks to the stellar cast and fine direction, this is a play for everyone to enjoy
