Roseau, Dominica: The Commonwealth of Dominica will host the Madame Wob Dwiyet pageant in Good Hope on Saturday, October 22, 2022. Around six contestants will participate in the first show of its kind.
The village council of the Good Hope Village will organize the show and hold it at the Good Hope Resource Center.
The pageant will witness the staging of the three rounds of competition, such as Talent, Creole Creative Wear, and Wob Dwiyet. The name of six contestants who will grace the show is Patrice Elick of Good Hope, Nathalia Lafond-Gustav of Tranto/Dixpas, Claudette Scotland of Castle Bruce, Edmay Titre of Good Hope, Augustina Durand of Petite Soufriere and Athalia Hill of Petite Soufriere.
The contestants have been preparing ahead of the competition, and the show organizer and Chairperson of the Good Hope Village Council, Achille Grove, called it an exciting show.
“We are very pleased to bring this competition to Good Hope as part of our efforts to preserve and promote Dominica’s culture at the community level. Patrons can expect elements of our rich traditions and heritage on display as our contestants are eager to showcase their talents and play their part in making our 44th anniversary of independence celebrations a success,” Grove asserted.
The show will be hosted by the former Chief Cultural Officer Raymond Lawrence and Castle Bruce-based singer. Apart from the competition between six contestants, Dominica will be entertained with the performance of the Chesterfield Seraphine of the acclaimed Sound Masters of Good Hope; Joy Stoute; the Castle Bruce and Petite Soufriere Cultural Groups; and the Karifuna Cultural Group of the Kalinago Territory.
Various prominent names, such as the reigning national Madame Wob Dwiyet, Dorothy Laurent of Petite Soufriere; Cassie Seraphine of Good Hope and Sasha John-Carbon of Castle Bruce, former Miss Wob Dwiyet contestants, will help in their training and also make appearances.
On Sunday, October 9, 2022, the authorities will formally launch the contestants after following a motorcade through the communities of Castle Bruce to Petite Soufriere.
