FT. LAUDERDALE – African-Americans have their ‘Madea’, Jamaicans have their ‘GIRLIE’, and she is coming to South Florida for the wildest wedding you will ever attend in Michael Denton’s big comedy play GIRLIE’s Bashment Wedding.
GIRLIE was written and directed by Michael Denton, and has been thrilling audiences in New York and New Jersey and now its South Florida’s turn to enjoy Girlie.
There will be three shows held in South Florida,
– Saturday, March 3rd 8pm at the N. Miami Beach Performing Arts Center, 17011 NE 19th Ave starting
– Sunday, March 4th 7pm at the Coral Springs Center for the Arts, 2855 Coral Springs Dr.

GIRLIE’s Bashment Wedding stars Lascell Parnell as Girlie, Junie Sweetness as her sister Pauline, Sheldon Barnes as Don the groom, and Michael Denton as his father.
In the play, Girlie is asked to cater her sister’s wedding, but when she meets her sister’s fiance she begins to entertain other thoughts which leads to a hilarious mix of humor and madness. On the other hand the father of the groom is totally against his son getting married to Girlie’s sister and begins to plan his portion of mischief to the relationship with the help of Girlie and her friend Joyce. What follows is nothing short of a Jamaican soap opera that will have you rolling in the isles.
