Today is World Theatre Day!

If you ever doubt magic’s existence, just walk into a theatre. You are immersed into a completely different world involving talent, human contact, effort, creativity and of course, magic. World Theatre Day was initiated in 1961 and is celebrated annually. The goals of he day are to promote theatre in all its forms across the world, to make people aware of the value of theatre in all its forms, to share the joy for theatre with others, and to enjoy theatre in all its forms for its own sake.
KwaZulu Natal is often considered the incubator of artistic talent with world class thespians, playwrights and creatives residing in our city. Venues such as The Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre, The Rhumbelow Theatres, The Playhouse, Seabrookes, the isiZulu and Rockwood Theatre all have active calendars with a feast of live shows on stage year-round. Further afield are The Hexagon, The Theatre at St Anne’s, The Schlesinger Theatre at Michaelhouse and the Hilton College Theatre.
“I regard the theatre as the greatest of all art forms, the most immediate way in which a human being can share with another the sense of what it is to be a human being.” Oscar Wilde
World Theatre Day welcomes and encourages creativity! KickstArt’s latest offering, The Play That Goes Wrong is comedic mayhem from start to finish. The premise is an amateur dramatics company is putting on a 1920’s murder mystery, The Murder at Haversham Manor, in a similar vein to the acclaimed The Mousetrap, but as the title suggests, everything that can go wrong…does!
Pictured celebrating World Theatre Day are Adam Dore (in black) who plays the chief electrician, Trevor Watson, Mthokozisi Zulu plays the role of Dennis Tyde who plays the role of Perkins the Butler and Bryan Hiles as Max Bennett as the hapless brother of the murder victim.
