Benefit performance of 'the Golden Macca Fat' to mark Bustamante's birth

February 24, 2014, will be the 130th anniversary of the birth of Sir Alexander Bustamante, making the occasion an opportunity to celebrate the life and work of our national hero.

According to various sources, Bustamante was fond of children and so he would give sweets and money to the little ones he met throughout Jamaica.

The Bustamante Museum has appropriately partnered with the Little Theatre for a benefit performance of the 2013-2014 pantomime - 'The Golden Macca Fat'. The family show is slated for Saturday at 7 p.m. at the Little Theatre, with a contribution of $1,500 per ticket.

The plot of the pantomime is centred on the people of Macca Fat Mountain. Award-winning journalist Barbara Gloudon wrote this year's script. The cast is composed of almost 20 members and includes Faith Bucknor, Ray Jarrett, Kevin Halstead, and Sharon Edwards. The production is under the direction of Pierre LeMaire.

Tickets for the benefit performance are available at the Little Theatre and the Bustamante Museum (21/2 Goodwill Avenue, 946-2666).

The museum is a Jamaica National Heritage Trust site and was previously the home of Sir Alexander Bustamante before he relocated to Jamaica House. The museum opened in 2009.
