The Playhouse Company is holding auditions for performers from community individuals who would like to be considered for this year's Community Arts Mentorship Programme (CAMP), which will take place between February 4 and March 23, 2019.

“As an institution we are privileged to be afforded such an opportunity through funding from the Department of Arts and Culture’s Incubator Programme which enables us to hone the raw talents of our community based artists by assisting them to learn from the very best in the country and take what they have learnt to plough back to their communities,” said CEO & Artistic Director of The Playhouse Company, Ms Linda Bukhosini.
