The Playhouse Company will hold auditions on December 12 and 13 for participants who wish to participate in its Test Driving the Arts programme during 2013. Auditions Registration will be open until December 7.

The Playhouse Company’s Test Drive programme is designed to showcase arts practitioners in the fields of indigenous and popular cultural entertainment.  Performance genres typically featured in the series include Maskandi, Gospel, Kwaito, Isicathamiya, Ingoma, Afro Reggae, Imfene, Pantsula, Hip Hop, among others.

The Test Drive series provides CBD workers with regular opportunities to enjoy free lunchtime concerts close to their places of work. It also fulfils a valuable role to the performing arts community as it serves as a showcase for artists to be scooped by talent scouts on the lookout for quality acts. 

Auditions will be held at The Playhouse. To take part in the Test Drive contact Khulekani Kunene on 031 369 9440 between 09h00 and 16h30 only.
