ANNUAL EVENTS

Ole’ Time Sinting Flyer.jpg

The Louise Bennett-Coverley Heritage Council will present a 2023 edition of their hilarious pantomime production “Ol’ Time Sinting Come Back Again’, at the Lauderhill Performing Arts Center on September 30 and October 1. The pantomime will be in remembrance of Miss Lou and Fr. Easton Lee, under the patronage of Jamaica’s Consul General Oliver Mair.

“Ol’ Time Sinting Come Back Again” was written by Mrs. Norma Darby and Fr. Easton Lee and first staged in 2011 to a sold-out audience. The 2023 production will feature a cast of talented actors including Dennis Titus, Dr. Sue, Sunita Spencer, Malachi Smith, Fr. Horace Ward, Marie Gill, Maxine Osbourne and other well-known local personalities. Musical accompaniment will be by the Jamaican Folk Revue and the Tallawah Mento Band as well as traditional folk dances by the Carimer Theater Company.

 

Jamaican Pantomimes, through the work of the Late Louise Bennett-Coverley “Miss Lou” and Ranny Williams “Mass Ran” developed into a truly Jamaican theatre event opening annually the day after Christmas (Boxing Day). Pantomime productions are well supported by the Jamaican audience and have remained a staple on the theater calendar through current times.
