ACADEMIC AWARDS (article first published : 1999-11-19)

The annual awards ceremony of Technikon Natalís drama studies department was held on November 8 at the Courtyard Theatre on the Berea campus.

No academic awards were presented this year as the panel considered that no student had attained high enough marks. General Merit Awards were presented to Gregg Abell (first year), Bryan Hiles (second year) and Jacinta Richards and Monique Hebrard (third year). Awards for backstage assistance were given to Shanna Peterson, Winnie Majozi and Thabo Godide.

Awards were also given for best newcomer (Ntando Cele), most improved performer (Bryan Hiles and Winnie Majozi), most improved dancer (Mlungisi Zondi) and most improved singer (Winnie Majozi). The awards for outstanding female and male singers went to Hlengiwe Lushaba and Bongani Khumalo (posthumously) while the award for outstanding female dancer was presented to Jacinta Richards. The award for most outstanding dancer was split to incorporate two honours: most outstanding dance technique (Jabulani Msomi) and most outstanding dance style (Siyabonga Shibe).

Momelezi Ntshiba received the creative achievement award for his production of Inside Out for the Grahamstown Festival, the award for dedication and professionalism went to Linda Hlongwane and Thandeka Sibisi won the stage management award. Best supporting actress and actor were Winnie Majozi and Morne Botha. Jacinta Richards won the award for best actress in a leading role for her performance in People of Heaven while the undisputed best actor of the year was undoubtedly Edwin Khumalo. Winning the award for best director was Momelezi Ntshiba.
