A production to be performed on the campus of the University of the Free State (UFS), How High is up?, promises a treat for theatre lovers.

It will be presented from 11 to 14 September in the Scaena Rehearsal Room Theatre on the main campus of the UFS.

This is an initiative of the Department of Drama and Theatre Arts at the university. Actors featured are Retha van Rhun, Katlego Mokgwamme and Simbulele Moko.

Set in “a world a bit like ours and a bit not”, the story centres around Little Star and her mission to make time stand still in order to save her old friend Ba Gia from dying.

On this quest, Little Star is assisted by the Bird who has no Wings, a witty yet caring character, with a heart of gold. Together, they fly through space, facing an extraordinary journey to meet the Magicians of Roaring Winds, Pouring Rain and Silent Snow.

The magicians do not entirely solve the problem, but do guide Little Star on understanding one of the few genuine facts of life – death.

Watched over by the Sun and the Moon, a neurotic and peculiar couple, Little Star reaches an unexpected shore. Full of music and movement, this magical play celebrates life in all its changes and its lasting truths. The dance of life goes on.

The production is performed in English and is suitable for young audiences.

Tickets are available at Computicket (086-1915-8000) at R25 per person and R20 per person for groups of ten or more. For group bookings, call Karen Combrinck on 051-401-2160.
