Oliver Samuels Gets An A For Role In ‘Class Of ’73’

It’s back to the class-room for Patrick Brown’s side-splitting comedy featuring Oliver Samuels – the Caribbean’s King of Comedy – and a cast of talented actors, in Class of ’73. This rollicking comedy will play in Tampa and Palm Beach June 24 and 25 respectively, North Miami Beach and Coral Springs July 1st and 2nd.

Imagine Oliver Samuels playing the role of a teacher – Mr. B. Pringle – saddled with a bunch of intellectually-challenged social rejects known as Grade 6Z. Join these social misfits on a gut-busting, laugh-a-minute ride towards their unlikely graduation.

Writer Patrick Brown uses Class of ’73 to look at some of the challenges facing Jamaica’s education system. But despite the inherent and obvious frailties, he shows that the nation continues to beat the odds. How? Come see what eventually happens to the Class of ’73.

The 1973 setting adds a touch of nostalgia to this unforgettable experience. Picture Oliver Samuels in Jherri Curls and Bell-foot polyester pants “skanking” to the music of The Heptones, or Glen “Titus” Campbell & Company, sporting giant afros, doing the “S90 Skank”. Need we say more?

Tickets will go on sale in May at selected Caribbean outlets. Class of ’73 is presented by Riddims Marketing in association with Jamaica Awareness, Inc. and Jamaica National Money Transfer. Class of ’73 is sponsored by Air Jamaica, Grace Tropical Rhythms and Douglas Chiropractic Centers.
