Welpies Day Care Centre children meet actors of UFS play

The Welpies were ecstatic to meet the actors after a performance of Doortjie at the Scaena Theatre last week.

Some of the functions of Drama are to create a direct physical and emotional experience, to transcend knowledge at all levels, to enrich the imagination and to enthuse theatre-goers' minds and souls. Drama is therefore an influential medium for learning as well as for personal development.

For more than a decade now, the Department of Drama and Theatre Arts at the University of the Free State (UFS) has been a friend of the Welpies Day Care Centre in Oranjesig, Bloemfontein. The pre-schoolers regularly attend fantasy theatre productions free of charge.
