Hanover-based UHURU Performing Arts Theatre Company relaunches

The re-launch of UHURU Performing Arts Theatre Company will take place at Florizel Court Villas, Esher in Lucea, on Saturday, April 20, 2013.


The event will showcase a display of play, dance, and comedy and will feature guest artiste Marisko.

Uhuru Performing Arts Theatre Company established in 2003, is the brainchild of Nerris Hawthorne, returning resident and graduate of Chelsea College of Physical Education in England; Damion Andrews, Graduate of the Edna Manley College of Visual and Performing Arts, and Aldith Stephens, Performing Arts Coordinator and Culture Agent, both prominent achievers in, and ambassadors of the performing arts in Hanover, Jamaica

The young company had to cease operation temporarily due to lack of finances.

In addition, many of the members had to travel from far across the parish, being high school students with no source of income.

Over time, people kept clamoring for the revival of HHURU and so the former director and friends decided to reopen it.

"It is our objective to introduce theater to rural Jamaica and fill the existing void that now exists - neither theatre nor cultural centers," the directors stated in a release.

Persons are asked to be at Florizel Court Villas for a 7pm start. Guest speaker will be James Samuels, former Jamaica Hotel and Tourist Association president.
