VOORKAMERFEST 2006 (article first published : 2006-09-3)

The 3rd annual Voorkamerfest in Darling has received a boost by way of sponsorship from several well-known theatres in South Africa and London.

Support has been received from the Barnyard Theatres, Artscape, On Broadway, Theatre on the Bay, the Baxter, the Little Theatre, Spier, Oude Libertas and the ABSA Klein Karoo Kunstefees in the Cape.

The Civic and the Market Theatres in Johannesburg have joined their counterparts in the Cape and from overseas, the Tricycle Theatre in London and The Art Theatre in Boston, USA are on board already.

Says festival organiser Marietha Channell, "we are thrilled that the excitement for the Voorkamerfest reaches as far as England and America. It is wonderful to have the support of the theatre community and a well-known theatre will sponsor each of the 15 venues in Darling. For the weekend of the Voorkamerfest the different homes will be branded with the name of a sponsoring theatre."

This year, the festival, which takes place in the voorkamers (front rooms) of different homes in the various communities, will see the participation of several well-known stage personalities that include, amongst others, singer Tina Schouw, comedian Stuart Taylor, musician Dizu Plaatjies and the Khayelitsha United Mamabaso Male Voice Ensemble.

The Voorkamerkamerfest 2006 will be presented in Darling in the Cape from September 8 to 10. Seating is limited and booking is open.
