Two Performances Today!
The matinee, in particular, was a lot of fun as hundreds of students were bussed in. Most of the children came from Soweto and had never been in a theatre before. They had absolutely no inhibitions in showing their emotions during the show… delight in the drumming, oohs and ahhs at the flying, shrieks at the horses and not one was left in their seat when beads were thrown into the audience during Act II. The energy was over the top. They were also thrilled to participate in workshops with SOA members before and after the performances.
Tomorrow we get to do it all over again with new kids. How cool is that!
