UFS did well at the KKNK
2007-04-13

The Sanlam prizes for Afrikaans Theatre (SPAT) for new stage productions were recently awarded at the Absa Klein Karoo Nasionale Kunstefees (KKNK) in Oudtshoorn. Lewensreg, a stage production of the University of the Free State (UFS), and one of the four finalists, received R100 000 for the best stage production for the second time since the inception of the KKNK. The UFS received this prize in 2005 as well. Mr Jan van Tonder, well-known novelist and writer of radio dramas, received the R20 000 award for best playwright and Prof. Nico Luwes, Departmental Chairperson of the UFS Department of Drama and Theatre Arts, was awarded the same amount as best director. The silver award in the best actor category, worth R10 000, went to Mr JP du Plessis, an Honors student in Drama at the UFS, for his role in Lewensreg. Ms Lancea Crafford, a student from the University of Stellenbosch (US), received the golden award for best actor for her role in the university’s production Die Maket.
