TEST DRIVE (article first published : 2008-04-19)

Test Driving the Arts, The Playhouse Company’s series of fortnightly lunch hour concerts, continues on April 22 in The Playhouse Grand Foyer, with two talented groups of performers entertaining their midday audience. The fifth Test Drive event of the year, it will feature Afro Jazz group Thatha and Maskandi artists Abafana Bomnyovu with Mdu Jali as MC introducing the artists.

The following Test Drive event of 2008 takes place on May 6 featuring popular Indlamu performers, Isishingishane Somoya, and Alikho Gospel group. The MC scheduled for this programme is Bheki Mbili.

The Playhouse Company’s Test Drive programme is designed to showcase arts practitioners in the fields of indigenous and popular cultural entertainment. The series provides CBD workers with regular opportunities to enjoy free lunch-time concerts close to their places of work. It also fulfils a valuable role to the performing arts community as it serves as a show case for artists to be scooped by talent scouts on the look out for quality acts.

The Test Drive concerts take place between 13h00 and 14h00. Admission, as always with this highly successful development project, is free.
