AUDITIONS FOR MATA-MATA (article first published : 1999-09-4)

The Playhouse Company is holding auditions to find 11 talented and vibrant actors for their new production of the folktale, Mata-Mata. The musical play, written and directed by renowned storyteller Gcina Mhlope will be presented by NBS and the Playhouse Company as part of their Festive Season package in the Playhouse Sanlam Loft this summer. Gcina Mhlope, who has delighted audiences the world over with her storytelling skills will appear as the narrator.

Mata-Mata tells the tale of a dancing mountain tortoise whose boisterous antics upset the other animals living at Lake Manzandonga. Other characters include Xoxo, the frog; Mude-Mude, the giraffe; Nhlanzi, the goldfish and Sibagobe, the bird as well as Hippo and Monkey. The producers are also looking for a teenage boy to play Zamani, the hunter boy, and a young girl aged about 10 years old, to play the young Thabisile.

Auditions will take place at the Playhouse on September 11 from 09h00 onwards and those trying for parts need to be available from November 15 to December 18. They must also prepare a three-minute character monologue from a South African work as well as a musical number (preferably a ballad or comic number), taking along sheet music or backing tracks on cassette tape. To book an audition time or for further details, phone Leigh Gunkel on (031) 369-9463.
