CURTAIN UP (article first published : 2001-07-17)

Children creating awareness and raising funds through the use of theatre - for children less fortunate than themselves is a valuable message to be sent to all South Africans. Supporting the arts in aid of charity local manufacturer Robertsons Pty Ltd is staging a funky new musical titled Curtain Up in an attempt to provide youth with an opportunity to showcase their abundant talent while at the same time raising funds for the "Save the Children Fund."

All money raised through Curtain Up goes towards feeding and caring for children. Directed by Themi Venturas, the show promises to expose raw young talent and entertain audiences with a mixture of song, dance, humour and drama. Themi recently auditioned for aspirant young performers and was overwhelmed with the phenomenal response from so many extremely talented young people. After hours of gruelling auditioning, 35 children were chosen out of the some hundreds who participated.

Curtain Up runs at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre from July 25 to 29. There is a special gala performance on July 28 with tickets available from Linda van der Veen on (031) 571-9680 or e-mail: linda.vanderveen@robertsons.co.za

Public tickets for all other performances R35 (R20 students, scholars and pensioners). Booking is through Computicket or call (011) 340-8000, credit card bookings on 083 915-8000 or www.computicket.co.za
