Operation Triple Threat (2016-17)

“Operation Triple Threat (O.T.T), Registered Charity #1160, is a developmental performing arts programme for students between the ages of 7 and 21. The idea for the programme was inspired by the noticeable need for training of youths to become, what the entertainment industry calls, a ‘triple threat’- someone who is skilled in each of the three disciplines of singing, dancing and acting. O.T.T aims to offer an intensive programme for young performing artists, which enables them to excel and compete at internationally recognized standards, potentially fostering future arts practitioners and offering the Barbadian public the option of experiencing musical theatre entertainment on a regular basis.”
