FOREVER HOME (article first published : 2007-08-10)

Forever Home is an original, home-grown musical drama which conveys a message of empowerment especially to young people. No family is perfect and every child grows up searching for identity, security and respect.

Produced by the Oblates of Mary Immaculate Youth Ministry and featuring youth from the Oblates of Mary Immaculate in Durban, Forever Home is backed by a live band. The story is told through vibrant acting and music styles familiar to and enjoyed by today's teenagers and promises to be an unforgettable experience of a journey that we all walk sometime in our lives. It is the journey of losing ourselves, only to find that what we went out looking for is deep within us, waiting to be discovered.

Forever Home is a story of hope acknowledging the struggles of urban society in a new age of cultural fusion. Nate leaves home to find his dream. His mother Anne bravely lets him go and her strength calms the anguish of his father Joe. She is confident that the love that they have given Nate will be his redemption. In a rough and ready gangster world, Nate realises what he's left behind but Grace helps him find it.

Under the direction of Vita Award Winner Hamish Kyd, the youth who have bravely made up the cast and crew of Forever Home are themselves an expression of Nate's journey.

Forever Home has performances at the Hilton College Theatre on August 10 at 19h30 and August 11 at 15h00. Tickets R35 booked on 033 3830126 or email tickets@hiltoncollege.com
