The KOTE Ward Theatre Project
The Ward Theatre as we know it was built in 1912 and is the third theatre to stand on the same site since 1775.
It stands as a Jamaican landmark and a showcase for the nation’s culture. Its mission is to function as a civic & cultural centre thus providing a home for the development and exposition of the Performing Arts. Unfortunately however it has been closed to the public for a number of years as it is in need of repairs.
KOTE 2014 intends to bring public awareness to this heritage site by fostering community and national unity through the medium of Performing Arts.
There will be a KOTE concert to be held this Sunday June 22 at 4pm is $1500 ($500 for students with ID and Children under 12 yrs).
Following the KOTE Volunteer Community Cleanup (June 14-15), the space has been brought into a “useable” condition. While there is no doubt renovation needed on the building, this event intends to re-introduce Ward Theatre and its cultural importance to the General Public and revitalize a restoration campaign for the building.
For the KOTE Concert, they will be showcasing live music, theatre and dance performance including the following nine (9) groups/people:
1. ALPHA BOYS SCHOOL ORCHESTRA
A non-profit vocational school serving at risk boys 8 and 18 years old. Founded in 1880, Alpha has been administered since 1890 by the Religious Sisters of Mercy, a catholic order of nuns. Of the vocations taught, music has been the most prolific. Alpha boys have influenced the direction of jazz, ska, reggae and dancehall worldwide. The celebrated careers of jazzmen Jo Jo Harriot and Dizzy Reece, ska pioneers the Skatalites, roots reggae vocalist Leroy Smart and dancehall deejay Winston Foster, aka Yellowman, all began at Alpha. In the words of The Telegraph (UK), Alpha Boys School “helped release the spirit of one of the most musical islands in the world.”
