Media Alert: Final Drama Festival in Cape Winelands Opened By Minister Marais
Tomorrow, 14 November 2015, the Western Cape Minister of Cultural Affairs and Sport, Anroux Marais, will officially open the final drama festival showcase in the Cape Winelands District Municipality.
The drama festivals held across the province enable youth from the rural parts of the province to showcase their productions to professional adjudicators. The festivals serve as a platform for local talent identification in performance theatre in order to elevate the skill levels of emerging artists. Due to the lack of development resources in these communities professional theatre is then taken to these emerging artists.
Before the winners are selected Minister Marais will encourage the performers from various communities in the Cape Winelands District Municipality to continue developing their art of drama through the provided professional partnerships with experts in their fields.
ALL MEDIA ARE INVITED TO ATTEND
Date: Saturday, 21 November 2015
Venue: Stellenbosch Town Hall
There will be opportunities for photographs and interviews.
