The community enjoyed "Moods at Twilight" on May 30th at the Grand Bahama Labyrinth. This Eldon-McGlone production closes the GB Labyrinth Theatre Season.

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!

She thanked everyone for their support;  especially Gloria McGlone and Ivy Eldon who had been among the first on the Island to work with the Labyrinth and use it to enhance the great talent, they in particular, are nurturing and encouraging on our Island.  Indeed, this, the last show of this Labyrinth Garden Theatre season was their sixth presentation on the Grand Bahama Labyrinth.  Thank you, thank you Ladies.  You're amazing! 
'Moods at Twilight', an Elden-McGlone presentation, was another even more amazing show of incredible music and dancing which totally enthralled all for 90 minutes!

The show was opened by an exquisite performance by the Bell Choir from Sister Mary Patricia Russell School ;  this was followed by 'Junkalicious', a selection of melodious precision drumming by 'Rolling Thunder', a young group from Sunland Baptist Academy trained by Sheena Moree; this group later spontaneously improvised a truly appropriate introduction to our own 'Witch Doctor' Lawson Pinder!  What a great dancer he is!

There was more great dancing from the ever- welcome friend, the popular Tony Lowe who thrilled us by tap-dancing 'Mr. Bojangles'; an performance which would not have disappointed Sammy Davis himself!

A break in the dancing made room for the lovely Miss Sophie 'Versatility' Paine...this time on her magic flute in the exalted company of Paula La Plant. 
Baldwin Newbold gave us an excellent rendering of  the 'The Entertainer'; and was called back to the keyboard for an encore.

Also playing the keyboard, with an original piece, composed  especially for this show, was own Garden favourite, Jens Peter Sweeting who truly plays with his magic fingers and his gentle heart.  A double treat was to listen again to Jens;  this time on the guitar, with another original composition, accompanying the beautiful Julia Geiger dancing an exquisite piece entitled "Poison=Poison But "Poison" =Fish".  An incredible title which, to me, in no way described Julia, Jens or the enthralling performance.
The audience were further delighted to watch the Georgia Taylor Dancers in their different interpretations of lovely music, including 'Prayer', 'A Secret Place'  and, their finale - 'Imagine Me', beautifully performed.

The Bahamas Dance Theatre entertained with a modern Hip Hop rendering of 'Give me More';  again showing the versatility of the great talent on our Island.....and last, but by no means least, all were enchanted by the beautiful strings of the Allegro School of Music led by their maestro, Eva Raduzinski.  These young violinists in their performance of 'Pachabel Canon', floated their music on the gentle night breeze;  only surpassed by Eva, herself, accompanied by Lois Desaulniers, exquisitely playing 'Tango'.
Gloria thanked everyone for their help and support; she included the Sound Team of Darren Rollins and Alvin Smith, who were forgiven a few blimps!  She encouraged the performers to take well-deserved applause, and finally closed by wishing everyone a wonderful Summer.
We all look forward to the next season of Labyrinth Garden Theatre which will open in the Autumn.
Joy and Peace on the Path!
