LOSER CHARITY PERFORMANCE (article first published : 2001-04-29)

A charity performance of The Loser, the popular hit musical comedy show featuring Aaron McIlroy, will take place at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre on Tuesday (May 1). The show has been extended by popular demand for a further five performances and the Makaphutu Children’s Home will benefit from the funds raised by the ticket sales of this particular performance.

The Makaphutu Children’s Home is located in the Valley of the Thousand Hills and was started about 25 years ago in a derelict farmhouse which was adapted to meet the needs of an orphanage. The funds raised from the performance will all be used towards the construction of accommodation, food and clothes for the children who range in age from nine months to 16 years. They are resident in the orphanage because they have been abandoned, abused, orphaned or are seriously ill.

The Loser is a musical comedy which provides light relief to the more serious side of motivational speaking (see review in these pages). Tickets R42,50 for the charity performance.
