The Little Carib Theatre was established in 1948 by the late dance legend, Beryl “La Belle Rosette” McBurnie as a folk dance theatre to showcase the vibrant and rich culture of the Trinbagonian people.
She opened the doors to the theatre with her first show, Bele and from then to now, many productions have been staged and taken residency at this Woodbrook institution.
The theatre has since been renovated with works still to be completed, and the spectrum of events we host today has significantly broadened to include local and foreign music, spoken word and comedy acts, workshops, film nights, school Christmas productions, Best Village performances, even artisan craft markets and community yoga classes.
Many can say that this structure is one filled with history and unforgettable memories.
