Mzansi’s pop queen Zahara and veteran actor Vusi Thanda join actors Sphamandla Dhludhlu from Rhythm City, Unathi Platyi from Keeping Score, Tiisetso Thoka from Isithembiso and Thobani Mseleni from Mtatiele in helping 300 budding thespians and musicians moulding their performance skills.
Participants are invited to join a one-day workshop, 6 May 2017, at the Cambridge Town Hall in East London, Eastern Cape. The workshop will focus on theatre development and television grooming, vocal coaching for stage and television as well as assist in building the confidence of the young aspiring actor preparing them for possible careers in film or theatre, television and how to conduct themselves when interacting with media.
Aspiring actors will also be trained in delivering monologues/dialogues, how to read scene/scripts. They will engage in creating comedy with improvisation and will receive the necessary skills in building their brands.
“I am very passionate about uplifting young people from minimum wage and previously disadvantaged families. This workshop is not only for those who want to be actors but for many young people who struggle with their confidence” says Zahara.
