CULTURE BEAT: LTM’s Schoolaz launched at Little Theatre + Kirk Wright dubbed Journalist of the Year

PLAY TIME: Ahead of its traditional Boxing Day world premiere, the new LTM National Pantomime, Schoolaz, was given a quiet launch on the grounds of the Little Theatre in Kingston on Monday evening, attended by members of the press and the Pantomime Company. Script and lyrics co-ordinator Barbara Gloudon (above with Vivian Crawford), reteaming with director Robert “Bobby” Clarke, says audiences should expect a characteristically lively presentation, steeped in yard-style humour and the antics of contemporary youth. “It’s a wonderful story,” she says, “and the music is very modern.” Rounding out the creative team are longstanding ‘Panto’ regulars Grub Cooper (music), Anya Gloudon-Nelson (costumes), Michael Lorde (set), Symonne Coombs (props) and Rufus McDonald (lighting).

MAKING NEWS: Reporter Kirk Wright of Television Jamaica is obviously experiencing one of the most rewarding years of his career. This past September, he copped the Jamaica Broilers Fair Play Award (Electronic) for his eye-opening and life-saving report “Working in Danger: Asbestos Alert”, and now he’s been anointed PAJ/Sagicor Journalist of the Year following the recently held Press Association of Jamaica (PAJ) Awards. An honour well-earned and richly deserved. Meantime, The Gleaner dominated the overall awards (held at the Jamaica Pegasus), claiming 12 trophies. Jeremy Dear, former General Secretary of the United Kingdom Union of Journalists, was the guest speaker.
