Next Thanksgiving weekend, South Florida theater fans can enjoy a bellyful of laughs (and romance too) as Sunshine Theater presents David Tulloch’s new hilarious romantic comedy, “Prayer Partner.”
This special play premiers on Saturday, November 28th, starting 8 p.m. at the Miramar High School Theater. The play continues in Coral Springs, at the Coral Springs Center for the Arts, starting at 7 p.m.
Written, produced and directed by David Tulloch (who also performs in a lead role), “Prayer Partner” also stars award-winning actress Deon Silvera, the exciting Michael “String Beans” Nicholson, the legendary, three-time Actor Boy winner Chris McFarlane, and the upcoming ingénue Allison McLean.
“Prayer Partner” is a humorous tale about just how far one man will go to win his lady love. And this romantic comedy is not just good family entertainment, but also proves to be a worthwhile commentary on the power of prayer in the development and maintenance of meaningful relationships. It is an interesting mix of comedy, religion, and romance that will leave you pleased with the outcome.
In “Prayer Partner,” Danielle (played by Shana Wilson and Allison McLean) is pursued by two men – her fiancé Giovanni (played by Chris McFarlane) and Peter (played by David Tulloch). After finding out Giovanni is a low down cheater, she sinks into a deep depression, leading her to seek help from an ad in the newspaper about a prayer partner program. Peter finds out her need for divine assistance and transforms himself into an awkward-looking woman named Peta Gaye, with the hopes of getting close to Danielle as her “prayer partner.” The play skyrockets into a circus of shenanigans when the real prayer partner, the “prayer warrior” Sister Grace (played by Suzette Barrett and Deon Silvera) shows up. What follows is the must-see theatrical production of the year.
There will be a special performance before the play by the exciting Reggae Gospel singer Sista Sasha (who teamed up with international recording star Sean Paul for their big number one hit “I’m still in love with you”). Since her conversion, her big hit “Jesus A Di Don” and her album “Breaking Free” are one of the fastest risers on the charts.
