Theatre: Durban musical wins three awards

2013-03-18 00:00

DURBAN production Cabaret walked away with three awards at yesterday’s 48th Fleur du Cap Theatre Awards held at the Artscape Theatre in Cape Town.

Samantha Peo took the gong for best actress in a musical, while Charon Williams-Ros walked away with the best supporting prize, and Peter Court took home the best supporting actor award.

The production had received seven nominations.

Steven Stead of KickStArt, the play’s director, told The Witness they were very excited by the win.

“Unfortunately we couldn’t be in Cape Town for the awards,” he said, adding that they were attending the opening night of their latest production Don’t Dress for Dinner in Johannesburg.

For next year’s awards, he said, they would have three productions in Don’t Dress for Dinner, Twitch and Venus in Fur.

He said KickStArt would have a big party on arriving back in Durban this weekend.

For the Naledis, they had 13 nominations, and he was confident Cabaret would do well at the awards.

“We’re confident, although we’re up against 54 other productions. We’re not counting our chickens yet,” he said. — WR.
