(Donna Steel, Pieter de Beer and Nompumelelo Ngwenya)

Full House Productions presents La Rosa, a hilarious two act comedy about a Spanish soap opera cast and crew by Sli Hlengwa. Directed by Pieter de Beer, the cast includes Donna Steel; Nomonde Matiwane; Fortunate Dhlomo; Roberta Trenor Radwinn van Wyk; Pieter de Beer; James Geel; Musawenkhosi Ntuli and Thobani Mbhele.

Continuing South Africa’s post World Cup affinity with all things Spanish, De Beer has adapted Hlengwa’s text into a rollicking, side-splitting, high-action comedy with a cast of nine playing Spanish soap opera stars and their back stage technical crew.

The Courtyard Theatre management has made the theatre available to employ and empower DUT students and graduates. The project is mentored by UKZN’s Tamar Meskin and DUT’s Tanya van der Walt. There is safe parking on campus and this will be the first production to benefit from the makeover which the Courtyard Theatre foyer is getting in November.

La Rosa runs at the Courtyard Theatre at DUT from December 3 to 19 and serves as the launchpad for Full House Productions. Tickets R60 (R50 students/pensioners). Bookings on 084 244 7425, Helen Richter on 072 953 8169 or e-mail:
