Manifesto Jamaica is one of 10 youth organizations from the Commonwealth invited to participate in the Tin Forest Theatre Festival. The festival is part of the Glasgow 2014 Cultural Programme featured at this year’s Commonwealth Games.
We’re the only Caribbean country represented, and thanks to Jamaica’s Tourism Enhancement Fund we’ll make it there (they funded all the airfares)! We have just U$3,000 left to raise, to fund travel & meal expenses for our 10-member cast and crew while we’re in Glasgow. Please click here if you’re inspired to make a contribution. [Credit cards from around the world accepted and the website is secure.]
Our theatre piece, titled “SomeNoWhere” features a family of orphans, each of whom has a unique “superpower.” The orphans’ accidental discovery of their family history propels them to excel in their personal lives and careers. The 30-minute dramatic presentation is co-directed by Shaun Drysdale & Randy McClaren. The actors are Jodean Tapper (Ms. Guidance), Paula-Gaye Donaldson (Prop Master & Understudy), Randy McLaren (Wisdom), Renard Anderson (Riddim), Renee Jones (Gladis), Sheldon Kelly (Smitty) and Shaneil Orr (Telly). The group is comprised of youth, ages 16 to 24, from both rural and challenging urban communities in Jamaica.
