Durban’s The Playhouse Company to hold auditions for the 2016 Community Arts Mentorship Programme

The Playhouse Company is holding auditions for performers from community groups who would like to be considered for this year’s Community Arts Mentorship Programme (CAMP), which will take place between July and September 2016.

“Funding from The Department of Arts and Culture’s Incubator Programme enables us to offer this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to community-based actors to enhance and advance their performance-related skills under the tutelage of programme director, Ralph Lawson. This is a wonderful opportunity for community actors to learn from one of the very best in the country and to take what they have learned back to their communities,” Ms Bukhosini concluded.

Those actors who are accepted into the programme will participate in daily workshops that focus on basic training in a range of drama disciplines, including voice production, acting technique, stage design, script writing and stage management.

Please note that daily commitment is required in order to take part and only adults will be auditioned. Actors interested in auditioning for the CAMP programme should book an audition by calling (031) 369 9463 on Monday 6 and Tuesday 7 June from 09h00 – 12h00 and from 14h00 – 16h00. Auditions will be held in Studio A1 (Playhouse Head Office) at 09h00 on Monday 20 June 2016. Those wishing to audition should prepare a poem that they can perform. Please note that you might be required to wait for your audition.
