SHEBADA returns with a bang in “Bangarang”
Jamaica’s number 1 comic actor Keith “Shebada” Ramsey returns to South Florida for Father’s Day weekend, as Sunshine Theatre Company presents “Bangarang” – David Tulloch’s sensational new Jamaican comedy. A hit play premiered last December in Jamaica, Bangarang will be bringing the critically-acclaimed hilarity to the Sunshine State. The two-night showings will begin on Saturday, June 18th starting 8 p.m. at the Miramar High School, then continues on Sunday, June 19th, starting 7 p.m. at the Coral Springs Center for the Arts.
The comedy portrays true-to-life scenarios on Princess Street in downtown Kingston, reflecting a “slice of life” of every fragment of Jamaican society. Pearl (Monique Ellis) is a higgler by day and forced to become a prostitute by night. Then there is politician Winston Justice (played by Chris McFarlane), whose ambition is to become the MP for the area. While Officer Shellaz (Patrick Smith) is a policeman who is madly in love with Pearl, but she only sees him as a customer. Then there is Miss Chin (played by Terri Salmon) a store owner who is secretly buying all the land downtown to build a supercenter. And to complete the comedic pot of soup is the all-time hustler and handcart man, Keith Ramsey’s Shebada. Mix it all together and you have a comedy drama worthy to be seen.
In honor of Father’s Day weekend, Sunshine Theatre is also pleased to present for the pre-show entertainment the foremost Luther Vandross cover artist, Anthony “Hollywood” McDonald in a “Tribute to Luther”
