The 8th Annual Children’s Theatre Festival is back! It will runs on September 18 and 19, 2018, at the Courtyard Theatre – DUT.

Join the DUT Drama Department for a fabulous festival atmosphere, fun family activities and theatrical entertainment to top it off!

The DUT Drama students are using the Children’s Theatre Festival 2018 to fundraise and welcomes support.

Alongside tasty treats and prizes to be won, the organisers proudly present this year’s original production: Courtyard’s Crazy Magic, written and directed by lecturers Lee-Anne Naicker and Donna Steel, and performed by a talented cast of DUT first year students. Four unsuspecting visitors at the Courtyard Theatre become entangled in this hilarious tale which unravels before their eyes. A jealous dragon terrorizes the kingdom in order to get his beauty sleep. The Queen is determined to solve the mysteries lurking in her magical bejewelled garden. Frog princes, a shoe-designing diva and a brave soldier are caught up in the enchantment and mayhem. Will the dancing continue or will the music awaken the dragon? Come join us to see how the story unfolds.

This exciting show is suitable for all ages. Hour-long performances take place on September 18 and 19, 2018, at 12h00 and 18h00.
