NIC Hosts Showcase of Children’s Summer Arts Program with Kriol Rendition of ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas

On Thursday, children who are enrolled in the summer arts program from the National Institute of Culture and History (NIC) will be putting on a special show at the Bliss Center for the Performing Arts. The students will be showcasing the talents they have honed in the program to bring to life a Kriol rendition of the night before Christmas. Jillian Fuller, Associate Director, Bliss Center for the Performing Arts, promises a family-friendly night with hosts Shermaine Garcia and Ozzy the Clown. 

Jullian Fuller, Associate Director, Bliss Center for the Performing Arts: “On Thursday at 6:30pm we’ll be hosting an event called “A night before Christmas: A Kriol Version.” In it we’re gonna feature some kids that stem from our summer arts program which caters for children from ages three and up and it’s also gonna be featuring Giselle O’brien and her Caroling. We have Ozzy the Clown, we have Ms.Sharmane Garcia being our story teller and we also have some dancers from D’s Dance Studio. I’m in charge of the technical department here at the Bliss Center and our guys have been tasked again to showcase just bring a bit of life to the theater and they’re gonna have some sound effects, we’re gonna spark things up with the light so it’s a technical feature or them. In our summer arts program we usually feature dance, music, drama and in this performance we’re gonna feature some of those also and also they’re gonna be doing a little bit of dance, they will have the little story telling with the projection of the voice and everything and it’s a family oriented occasion.”

Thirteen-year-old Kaylee Panton and eleven-year-old Tyler Fuller spoke on how the summer arts program helped them develop and what role they are playing in Thursday’s show.

Kaylee Panton, Participant: “My role is a reindeer and the reindeer’s name is sparky. Basically I’m the second Rudolph I’ll spark up the stage. Sparky is a little cheeky so like what I would do I would try to imagine myself as Sparky and put myself in Sparky’s shoes and how would Sparky act to this and stuff like that and just get a little goofy. You could see my technique, you could see my stage presence is getting better and my confidence and everything. I really like dancing so it helps like I said earlier with my stage presence so whenever you see me dancing it feels like you want to get up on that stage and you want to dance too and confidence, confidence is a big thing especially like when you’re growing up there’s a lot of people in the world that want to tear you down and they want to make you stay in your shell and stuff like that but my confidence really helped me with that.”

Admission for the show is five dollars.
