What you'll do
"And now for something completely different!" Ever wondered what goes on in an actor's life? Have a day of fun with us in trendy Muizenberg. Enjoy fun stagecraft exercises (discover your "raisin face") and basic breathing and voice projection. ("Peas and carrots" is a favourite exercise.) We hold auditions - don't panic, we make sure you are well prepared - and EVERYONE gets a part. We rehearse a short play for our afternoon performance (with play scripts in hand - no learning of lines - bonus!). Yummy lunch and then it's performance time! You'll get to: Meet the locals, Enjoy a short village walkabout, Rehearse & perform on the small foyer stage, Bask in the applause from your friendly audience, And have tea with them. Finish the day with a sense of achievement (I never KNEW I could do that!) and a group of friends you will never forget. What are our participants saying? "Huge, thanks and gratitude to you for an awesome day , great fun, and awesome to spend time in your world for a day! I think your package and experience is totally awesome! You were all amazing. Great team. Thank YOU ! " Check out our Facebook page for more info/images.
I have been involved in theatre for over 30 years as a writer, director & actor. I am passionate about sharing what I know in a fun & creative way. I produce professionally but love community work. I also love my 'hood - Muizenberg. I have lived here for more than 30 years and have produced the Voicemap for the village. You will meet my bestie, Celia and some locals - you are in good hands!
