The Playhouse Company to host its annual Community Arts Mentorship Programme (CAMP)

The Playhouse Company will host its annual CAMP showcase on Friday, 02 September in its Loft theatre at 14h00. The showcase will see a group of community based artists who were selected through an audition process present a cross selection of work such as poems, monologues and drama pieces.

The mentorship programme was conducted under the guidance of programme director Ralph Lawson and facilitated by mentors: Edmund Mhlongo, Ashwin Singh, Roel Twijnstra, Thabo Mnguni, Xolisa Dlamini, Atlas Duma among others. The eight week long training focused on a range of drama disciplines, including voice production, dance, acting technique, stage design, script writing and stage management.

“We are very excited to be hosting this showcase which will be the culmination of intensive and dedicated effort by the artists and their mentors. The Community Arts Mentorship Programme is an initiative we are particularly proud of because of the many success stories emanating from it. Some previous participants are now actors in prominent national television productions such as Uzalo as well as Sokhulu and Partners” stated Playhouse Company CEO and Artistic Director, Ms Linda Bukhosini.
