MORE than 40 years after the Soweto uprising, the youth of Walmer are critically analysing and reflecting on today’s legacy of those who fought for freedom in 1976, by telling the story of Sara Fina, a bright learner from Walmer High School.

She finds herself in a predicament with no sign of getting a bursary. Sara’s youthfulness and bravery is tested when she is forced to choose between society and a foreigner boyfriend from her school.

So What, Sara Fina!? will see almost 50 high school learners from Walmer Township take to the stage for a third time when they showcase the original play at the National Arts Festival.

Having received enthusiastic acclaim and praise for their performances at PE Opera House and Savoy Theatre in 2018, the teenagers are enthusiastic about celebrating their festival premiere this year.

The original musical production is presented by the learners of Masifunde’s Academy of Creativity, under the direction of Xabiso Zweni (32), assisted by Sivuyile Scott Msizi (27) as musical director and Sibabalwe Ngewu (25) in choreography.

So What, Sara Fina!? will be performed at the Makhanda City Hall from July 3 to 5, everyday at 13:30. Admission is R40 for adults and R35 for students, pensioners and children.
