00animateDSC01209.gif
Freeport, Bahamas - Sunday evening, 30th of May, all enjoyed a warm and wonderful finale to the Labyrinth Garden Theatre Season with the presentation "Moods at Twilight".
 
In welcoming a truly appreciative audience (ranging from 8 weeks to 80 years...and three theatre-going dogs!) Barbara Chester reminded everyone that the Labyrinth was not yet two years old but was already occupying an important place in the community where it was proving  to be a great blessing. She commented that, as a beautiful gathering place of pure energy in the lovely Garden of the Groves it has provided a unique venue for our young up-and-coming entertainers of the future; many of whom we were delighted to see that night.  Barbara remarked how great it was to see more of the community understanding and appreciating the Spirit of the Labyrinth and all it has to offer!

Horsing around in the Bahamas - Feb 24, 2010 - 2:30:34 PM

LeohorseSM.jpg
Grand Bahama, The Bahamas – Am I on The Bachelorette or is this a bad case of TV deja vu?

The pale aqua ocean, deserted beach and sleek black horse all look strangely familiar. My lithe female guide, Leo, the owner of Trikk Pony, confirms it.

Secluded Barbary Beach on Grand Bahama, the fourth-largest island in the Bahamian archipelago, is where Bachelorette DeAnna rode horses with Jesse on The Bachelorette Season 4, and I'm about to re-create the ride.

The only thing is, I'm not sure I want to. When I'd originally signed up I'd misunderstood the program and thought I'd be swimming with seahorses...

About 100 people were treated to a first class production with a great deal of professionalism helped by Darren Rollins working lights, sound and projection.

The weather stayed dry and the moon peeped out of its eclipse just above the trees, providing a beautiful backdrop for the end of the show...
