AMFEST VARIETY (article first published : 2000-01-2)

Amfest which has traditionally been run as a one act play festival in various venues over the last 20 years, will celebrate its 21st anniversary this year by presenting a multi-faceted non professional arts festival. This will be held in the University of the Witwatersrand theatre complex in Johannesburg from July 31 to August 19, with a final gala performance and awards ceremony embracing all categories.

A new category this year will be that of variety performances which will cater for soloists, groups or schools, church choirs, etc. It will be a very general variety category that includes singing, dancing, music, orchestras, puppets, mime, traditional and comedy acts. Performances may not exceed 30 minutes and the cost per entry will be R50. Entries on a first-come-first-served basis and prior experience will be an advantage. Performances will run from August 7 to 18.

Amfest 2000 will also present two full-length productions. A farce has already been incorporated in the programme and applications are invited for a second production, preferably a pantomime or musical. There will be no entry charge but the group must pay their own costs for rights. Other conditions may apply and are subject to negotiation.

Contact Jaques Coetzee on 082 930-5627. For general enquiries and applications for Amfest 2000, the main contact is Noel Mcdonald on (011) 636-936 or (011) 475-584. General application forms can be found on the artslink.co.za website at http://www.artslink.co.za/amfest, under Amfest 2000.
