Cultural enrichment opportunities are encouraged as learners are introduced to live theatre performances for the first time in Grade 8 and 9. They are taught to analyse what they have seen, by writing theatre reviews. They apply their experiences to their drama studies at school as well. Our local theatres are a wonderful way to expose the learners to the workings of a theatre – wardrobe, props and set design, sound and lighting. We have visited the Soweto Theatre to learn about public art and architecture related to theatres. Learners are given opportunities to find out first-hand about careers in the performing arts by meeting people who work in such careers – lighting and sound technicians, actors, and designers. We have also visited the Roodepoort Theatre to see amateur drama productions and Monte Casino’s Pieter Toerien Theatre to experience a professional production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
