Concerts & Theater
Tillett Gardens , Tutu. In 1959, silkscreen art-
ist Jim Tillett arrived in St. Thomas, where he
transformed an old Danish farm, in the Tutu
area, into a flourishing artist's compound. The
center has expanded and flourished, despite Tillett's death.
It remains a marketplace for local arts and crafts and hosts
the “ Arts Alive ” art fairs several times each year. (See
Shopping .) The compound now houses an impressive enter-
tainment component and is home to an outdoor theater that
can accommodate 300 people. Concerts in the Garden
offers four classical and four non-classical concerts annually.
The artists come from all over the world. A pre-concert din-
ner is served in the garden, but you can purchase tickets for
the performance only as well. Adjacent to the garden is the
enclosed, air-conditioned Pistarcle Theater , a lovely venue
that can seat 200 people. Now in its 15th year, it presents a
series of shows, as well as a film series. Both the concert se-
ries and the theatrical performances are very popular so you
should check schedules and reserve seats well in advance.
(340) 775-1929, for concerts; (340)
775-7877, for Pistarcle Theater.
