Clever ‘James Bond movie’ staged at Riebeek College

2016-07-28 06:00

“Not Another James Bond Movie” is a parody-farce of an actual James Bond movie such as Skyfall or Spectre.

Presented by the Riebeek College Drama Club, the production is about a local shooting and the South African version of a James Bond film.

The foreshadowing of a hilarious chain of events occurs during auditions, where the role of James Bond is supposed to go to Johan Smith, an actor with an impressive resumé, but it is given to John Smit, an amateur actor.

“James Bond’s” girlfriend and best friend pull a prank on him by staging a kidnapping. The misfit hero takes the prank seriously, resulting in comedic consequences and a war.

Well known musician and teacher at Riebeek College, Anton Calitz, is in charge of the dynamic group which presented this original and clever show.

“Is it skyfall? Or a spectre? No. It’s not another James bond movie. Looking for the audience to play to, the cast is characterized by its self-starter determination,” said Calitz.

“The script has been a genuinely collectively originated piece directed by Ondela Nkumanda and co-directed by Ambesa Daniels. The cast sacrificed chunks of their holiday to rehearse.

“We wish them every success for the hard work they have put in.”

  • The production will be staged at the Sholto McIntyre Hall tonight at 18:30. Tickets are R30 and can be obtained from the school office during school hours. (-Heilie Combrinck)
