Life in the gold mines

2008-04-22 00:00

MUSICAL theatre on a big scale comes to the city in May when Sobantu Performing Arts present Shosholoza, a brand new musical dealing with life in the gold mines. A cast of 32 will take to the stage, under the direction of John Malusi Ledwaba, one of South Africa’s theatre veterans and a former Standard Bank Young Artist Award winner. He also wrote the piece.

Rehearsals are in full swing at the Winston Churchill Theatre, where I find Ledwaba busy with his choreographer and cast. I ask him how he came to be involved with the Sobantu-based group. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
