GRAHAMSTOWN AUDITIONS (article first published : 2000-03-15)

“The Playhouse Transnet Truck/Stage” has beenwell-supported at the Standard Bank National Arts Festivals in Grahamstown over the past five years. Placed midway between the city centre and the busy Village Green area, it attracts large audiences for its wide variety of performances. With generous sponsorship from Transnet, The Playhouse Company will once again head for Grahamstown, taking a contingent of KZN-based performers who will be selected through a process of auditions.

The Playhouse Company’s annual sortie to the Festival provides an important platform for exposure for semi-professional groups from KZN and aims to showcase the province’s diverse cultural practices such as maskandi; mbaqanga; African jazz; indlamu; and Indian dance. Selection will depend upon a variety of factors, including the style and genre; availability for the duration of the Festival (June 30 to July 8) and the size of the group (no larger than ten). Also taken into consideration will be the group’s technical requirements; suitability for the anticipated target audience and representivity.

Auditions will be held at the Playhouse on March 25 from 10h00 to 16h00. Those auditioning will be required to make their own arrangements to attend the auditions, bringing with them all equipment and instruments needed for a performance (except drum kit, keyboard and microphones).

To apply for an audition call Anriette Chorn, The Playhouse Company’s Music Manager on (031) 369 9455 by no later than March 20.
