School is usually the last thing on a person’s mind during a holiday weekend, but attending the University of Delcita is something you will not regret.
Directed and starring Andrea Wright, the family-oriented play chronicles the latest adventures of the indomitable Madame Delcita Coldwater, a character created by writer Paul O. Beale. Delcita is happily in love, has found a way to earn another University degree and is creating mayhem in the process. In her usual no-nonsense manner, Delcita shows that life is an exam; some fail, some don’t understand the questions and copy from others, but some study and achieve success.
Fans of Delcita will be entertained as she faces trials and answer much-debated questions. Can she keep her man from the clutches of other women? Will she hire a dentist? What’s the latest item in her wardrobe? The comedy-drama addresses a variety of issues, including the hypocrisy of the workplace, sexuality and marriage.
In addition to Wright, a graduate of Northern Carribbean University, the play’s cast includes Damion Smith, Joanna Johnson, Margaret Wilson and Samuel Keldo.
Presented by Fam Records Inc. in association with Big Stage Entertainment, the University of Delcita will be performed on Friday, October 10 at the Jamaican Canadian Association, 995 Arrow Rd. at 8 p.m.; and on Sunday, October 12 at Mayfield Secondary School, 5000 Mayfield Rd. (off Bramalea Blvd.) Brampton, at 5 p.m. and 9 p.m.
