won many times best comedian awards. He rose into fame with his master
piece tiatro “KIDD”. The other masperpiece tiatro of his was “CHONDRIM”
Gulf is not new for him as he already has acted in Kuwait a number of times
earlier. A year back in KKK organized “Songit Sanz” his character role as
“Garamae” and a solo as “Elvis Presely” surely mesmerized the hall packed
audience. Billed as seasons best tiatro in Goa, Ben will this time perform
super character role of late Jacinto Vaz and will render much admired song
of Jacinto Vaz “Abi Tum Lok Bombay Deko”. This song has recently won him
innumerable fans in Dubai where he participated in Mario Menezes tiatro.
The other aritstes who deserve mention are versatile Felcy one of the most
experienced and seasoned females of Goan stage whose acting and singing
styles are unique; Rosy Alvares belonging to the clan of Alvares family
that has given so much for Konkani stage. Rosy Alvares’ beautiful looks,
smart way of singing and very good acting will surely delight the audience.
As it is Rosy Alvares has recently won the prestigeious “Gulab” award for
being the best actress of 2002. She will pair with one of the giants of
Konkani Stage Mario Menezes and both of them will do justice to their roles.
Father and son duo of Young Chico and Jr. Chico first time in Kuwait will
perform together and as promised they will capture the hearts of the
audience by rendering best of songs as never sung before. As per the
organisers, Jr. Chico will devote his best of talents only for this show
along with his father. Mathew Araujo de St. Cruz, the best actor award
winner of Gulab will do his role in a style totally different from what
normally done by normal actors. Baby Hayzel the daughter of well known
stage artiste Milagres de Chandor will perform her role to the best of her
abilities and since she is the daughter of Milagres de Chandor, surely all
eyes will focus on her tenderness. Comedian Sally who is having a vast
following in Kuwait need no much elaboration but along with Benevangelisto
and tall boy comedian Boney (Colva) will keep the audience at the edge of
their seats. Ben will perform a unique role in which audience will see him
as the tallest man on the stage. Connie M. of Fantasy Band fame will render
best of his solos, so also Lawry. Especial musicians will accompany the
troupe from Goa and hence musical part will be taken care of nicely.
