There are only three more chances to catch the wacky and charming “Harold and Maude” at St. Croix’s Caribbean Community Theatre.

Show dates for the dramatic comedy by Colin Higgins are Dec. 10 and 11, Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m., with a final performance on Sunday, Dec. 12 at 4 p.m., according to a release from the theater.

“Harold and Maude” is a stage adaptation of the 1971 film about a discontented young man and his relationship and adventures with a free-spirited elderly woman.

Michael Baker directs the cast of “Harold and Maude”: Savannah Armijo, Alissandra Banuelos, Denise Blanchette, Judith Bozzo, Mario Capriola, Will Cooper, Sophie Dean, Bob Gard, Megan Grant, Tom Guthrie, Wendy Keeler, Paul Knipler, Tyler Olsen, and Patricia Scott.

Tickets are $20 for adults, with discounts for seniors, students and Caribbean Community Theatre members, and may be purchased (for cash only) at the Caribbean Community Theatre box office prior to each show, which opens 45 minutes before curtain. This play is not recommended for children under age 13. All performances are held at the Caribbean Community Theatre at #18 Estate Orange Grove in Christiansted, St. Croix.

Masks are required for entry into Caribbean Community Theatre. As permitted by the posted guidelines, Caribbean Community Theatre’s seating capacity has been reduced. Please cooperate in its continued attempts to stay safe and healthy by washing your hands and practicing social distancing.

Caribbean Community Theatre productions are jointly supported by a grant from the Virgin Islands Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts. This production is also co-sponsored by Christiansted Apothecary Hall, Caledonia Communication Corporation, and MOMosa Monday on WSTX AM 970.

According to the theater, Caribbean Community Theatre uses an air conditioning system that delivers sterilized, HEPA-filtered outside air directly into the auditorium at a rate that forces the inside air to be expelled through roof vents; delivering fresh, clean, germ-free air to the building every two minutes.
