The weekend staging of the hugely popular BANGARANG Play featuring Jamaican Keith “Shebada” Ramsey and Terri Salmon was a massive success. According to PRO Tasha Hendrickson the show drew upwards of 1500 patrons whichs was double the amount they expected and catered for.
The Event was the first fundraising activity organised by a recently established organization known as Champs for Charity led by Shirley Julius. The group was established to provide assistance to needy families and individuals throughout the island.
With 1500 patrons including a sold out 700 tickets at $50 and 800 persons paying $60 at the door according to PRO Hendrickson the Champs for Charity is certainly off to a fantastic start with close to $100,000 from their first fund raising event.
It is expected that an announcement will be made shortly indicating the first programme of assistance to be undertaken by the group as a result of the massive success of Bangarang.
Directed by B Lloyd Allen, the BANGARANG cast also features Chris McFarlane, Trudy Bell, Monique Ellis and Patrick Smith. Bangarang is a presentation of RBT Productions Limited, home of the immensely popular Bashment Granny series as well as Serious Business; Like Father, Like Son and Passa Passa.
