Rundown returns with alternative view of economy

| 08/12/2010

(CNS): Cayman’s most popular stage production, Rundown, will be back for a limited run at the Harquail Theatre at the end of March next year, organisers said on Wednesday. Hoping to “Upturn the economic downturn”, the cast, featuring old and new players, will be taking an irreverent look at life in the Cayman Islands, says CNCF’s Artistic Director, Henry Muttoo. Auditions for the show, especially for those who do impressions, will be held this Saturday, 11 December, at the Harquail Theatre. Meanwhile, the National Cultural Foundation is also looking for new young talent with auditions for the Young at Arts programme and auditions will also be held Saturday.

CNCF said that auditions for Rundown will be held between 12.30pm and 2:00pm and for the Young at Arts programme between 10:00am and noon for young people aged between 11 and 17.

Young at Art audition hopefuls need to book an audition time by calling 949-5477. Applicants should bring a memorised monologue in the form of a speech or poem, a dance, song or music that will be played on an instrument. Pieces should run no longer than three minutes. Participants should wear loose-fitting, comfortable clothing and come prepared to do movement and some reading aloud.

Young At Arts is an educational youthprogramme produced by CNCF and its prime objective is to train young, creative minds in the practical disciplines of the performing arts. For more information, call Rita on 949-5477 or email

    Well it’s about time!

    This is Cayman’s only serious attempt at local satire, and it’s well worth the ticket. I just hope they don’t pull any punches.

      OK ‘Anne on a moose’ you write it then and perhaps you will be ‘Anne on a noose!’

        i honestly believe there are still at least one or two Caymanians with the cojones to take a pot at our politicans, including our beloved leader, on the stage where satire is expected. It’s not the same as standing up in the town square and saying it.

        And if no-one does so in this latest "Rundown", then I will have to concede that there is no hope for Cayman whatsoever, and quit the place.

        Happy to offer to write a couple of sketches btw.
