A lot of hard work and a love for theatre is the secret behind the successful journey of The Fugard Theatre in District Six.

The theatre will soon be turning 10-years-old and to celebrate the journey, the 320-seater theatre launched the Fugard 2020 season at their rooftop venue on Monday 2 September

During the season there will be back-to-back shows consisting of works by various creatives in the industry.

The performance of these works are to serve the interest of the audience says artistic director, Greg Karvellas.

He says: “They invest a lot of time and resources engaging with the audience, finding out what they enjoy in order to deliver relevant, quality productions.”

During his speech at the launch, Karvellas thanked everyone that has made their journey amazing.

He says the theatre consistently looks at ways of not just growing their business but also helping the people working in the industry to grow.

Daniel Galloway, managing director of The Fugard Theatre says: “Who would have thought 10 years ago that we would be here, celebrating this moment?”

Lamees Albertus, a manager, has been part of the theatre since the beginning.

Albertus says they started from nothing, with no solid plan and it is an honour to have contributed enormously to the industry.

She says they want to continue improving and empowering those they work with and making a positive contribution to society. V For more information about the theatre and upcoming shows visitwww.thefugard.com.
