Jamaica 2 RAHTID, laughter and ‘bangarang’ – Florida March 4, 5, 11, and 12, 2006

With over 100 rib-tickling performances to its credit, Aston Cooke’s outrageously hilarious satirical revue Jamaica 2 RAHTID is the still funniest comedy on the Jamaican theatre scene today. Jamaica 2 RAHTID has been playing to appreciative sold-out houses at the Barn Theatre in New Kingston and will make the trip to South Florida in March.

The cast of Aston Cooke’s Jamaica 2 RAHTID in a scene from the hilarious satirical revue set to come to South Florida early March.

Jamaica 2 RAHTID is a scintillating musical revue which takes a funny look at Jamaica’s state of affairs. It is a pot-pourri of colorful Jamaican characters, presented in a creative collection of sketches and songs covering a wide range of social, cultural and political issues. There is something in this production for everyone in the family.

Jamaica 2 RAHTID boasts a cast of top Jamaican actors. This dynamic cast includes popular comedy actors Deon Silvera, Dahlia Harris, Christopher Daley, Christopher McFarlane and Everaldo Creary who recently won the Prime Minister’s Award for Arts and Culture. It is a delight to see all these fine actors on stage together.

Written by the prolific playwright Aston Cooke, Jamaica 2 RAHTID is directed by the multi-talented Michael Nicholson. Grub Cooper of Fab 5 is responsible for the musical component while Orville Hall choreographed the movement for these musical numbers.

The production comes to North Miami on March 4, and then plays in Palm Beach on Sunday, March 5 after which it goes over to Tampa on Saturday, March 11 and ends the Florida run in Coral Springs on March 12. Jamaica 2 RAHTID is presented by Jamaica Awareness, Inc., and Ridims Marketing Network.
