Drama department presents shows to promote literature
2009-03-09

 

The Department of Drama and Theatre Arts at the University of the Free State is presenting two stage plays based on prescribed works in an effort to make literature more accessible to senior school learners. Reza de Wet’s Mis, prescribed for Grade 12 learners, was presented from 2 to 6 March 2009 in the Wynand Mouton Theatre. More than 18 school groups attended the performances during the morning and the afternoon, while the evening shows were scheduled for the general public. Michelle Luwes, former drama student and local teacher, directed the play. The production will tour to Klerksdorp, and negotiations for performances in Potchefstroom are under way. Another stage play based on Die Potlooddief en die Engel by A.S. van Staden, prescribed for Grade 11 learners, will be presented from 18 to 20 March 2009 in the Scaena. Pieter Venter, a researcher on youth theatre and lecturer at the Department of Drama and Theatre Arts, directed the production. Pictured are some of the learners who watched Mis.
