DUT’s 7th Children’s Theatre Festival will take place from September 19 to 21 at Wushwini Theatre in Inanda and at The Courtyard Theatre at the Durban University of Technology.

The DUT Children’s Theatre festival founded by Prof Lutge goes into its seventh year.

“We proudly present this year’s original work, Roar, written and workshopped by drama staff, Lee-Anne Naicker and Donna Steel with the first year students of 2017. Sixty performers, dressed as some of Africa’s (and abroad) cuddly creatures, take to the stage in Roar to frolic in fun and learn to make harmonious symphonies.

The tantalisingly talented animals tease us with song, dance and splendour but find it difficult to put aside their diverse differences to make magical music. Will they croak like frogs or sing like the nightingale? Time presses on to their Heritage Day deadline but tensions are rife and feathers are still ruffled.  Come join us to hear how the story unfolds. With much excitement and mayhem the show is suitable for all ages,” say the organisers.

Performances take place on September 19 at Wushwini Theatre in Inanda and on September 20 and 21 at the Courtyard Theatre, Ritson Campus. All shows are at 12 noon.

Tickets R50 (R30 children). Block booking for 10 or more at R20 each. Bookings through Lebohang on 031 373 2194. The Courtyard Theatre is situated in Steve Biko Road, Ritson Campus, Gate 6
