AUDITIONS FOR KWEKU ANANSE (article first published : 2001-05-10)

Auditions for Kweku Ananse, an African folk tale about a witty spider, will be held on May 18 at the Playhouse. This charming childrenís theatre production is proudly presented by The Playhouse Company and is scheduled to run from July 5 to 15 during the July school holidays.

Kweku Ananse follows the oral tradition of story-telling which has been passed from generation to generation. The play is written by Zakes Mda and directed by well-known Durban actor Nathi Kunene, who is best remembered for his acting in Master Harold .. and the Boys and Macbeth. Nathi is also a highly-skilled director of childrenís theatre and directed and wrote the much-loved Cosí Cosi<./i> last year.

The Playhouse Company is looking for three full-time professional artists with good movement sense and an ability to perform in both English and isiZulu. They must also be available for full-time work from June 18. The characters are an older woman who plays the part of the cleaning lady, and two young college students who also play several animals.

Auditions will take place from 13h00 onwards in Rehearsal Room 410 at the Playhouse. Those wanting to audition must select a monologue from a play of their choice and prepare to perform their piece. Audition pieces, which should be between two and four minutes long, must be performed and not read.

To pre-book an audition slot, contact dance and drama co-ordinator Barbara Gengan on (031) 369-9463 or e-mail bjgengan@playhouseccompany.com
