Pistarckle is St. Thomas’ much loved community theater. We have been offering year-round entertainment for adults and families throughout the territory since our founding in 1991. In 1993 we incorporated. We built on this success, and since 2008, we have also been offering sophisticated performing arts enrichment programs for at-risk youth in our community.
With a loss of government support last year and quite likely next year as well, we are losing necessary funding for our after school classes and other educational performing arts programs. St. Thomas can’t afford to lose another safe, creative environment for our young people.
Pistarckle Theater supports young actors with programs such as the inter-island Vento Shakespeare Festival, 10 weeks of musical theater and playwrighting summer camps, the annual Christmas play, and after-school classes with 12 weeks of training in acting, singing, speech, and more. The theater also provides counseling and guidance for our rising stars who are enrolling in drama programs at top universities.
As we embrace 2017 and move forward to 2018, we are looking forward to our continued growth! Our goal includes expanding our after-school program with more teachers and classes to choose from.
