Bridgetown Theatre Company (BTC) will be staging four of its most popular productions at the Nassau Theatre in Palmyra Road, Newlands on Saturday from 19:30.

In the drama U Bully, which was first staged in 2012, a needy high school student realises that her fellow student’s physical, mental, emotional and cyberspace bullying might lead to her suicide. She decides to stand up against her.

Starring Megan Booysen, Shannon Williams and Zamile Majola, this piece deals with acceptance and standing up against social ills.

The controversial play Say something, first performed in July, will also be staged.

The production tells the story of sexual abuse by a respected family member and has sparked strong debate around sexual abuse amongst audience members.

Williams, Riedwaan Damon, Jaydine Ross and Jolene Daniels tell the story of this family who are too afraid to “say something”.

BTC’s dance drama Cape dances through the ages was recently staged as part of the Baxter Theatre Dance Festival and explores the dance styles synonymous with the history of the Western Cape through the eyes of a mother and daughter comparing their memories.

The piece is choreographed by Ross and Emile Petersen and features Ross, Peter­sen, Booysen, Ashlyn Daniels, Amy du Plooy, Cameron Toerien, Caelina-Joy Charles, Tegan Roberts, Wyden Adams, Clint van de Broeck and Kaylam Jacobs.

The final piece on the bill is BTC’s most successful musical Engliekaans which toured throughout the Western Cape in 2011 and 2012.

The production tells the story of a young couple from different backgrounds who have to convince their judgemental friends and domineering family that they are meant to be together.

Written by Theo E. Davids, Englie­kaans was choreographed by Jolene Daniels and directed by Damon.

It features Damon, Booysen, Adams, Williams, Ross, Van der Broeck, Jacobs, Toerien, Shariefa Wagner, Fowzia Khan, Pam Samuels, Dillon Paulse, Nikita Petersen and Ashlyn Daniels.V
