Drama class scoops the awards

19 March 2007

The UCT School of Drama started 2007 on a high, scooping three laurels in the Fleur du Cap Theatre Awards in early March.

Geoffrey Hyland's production of Twelfth Night picked up three awards: lecturer and master's student Claire Watling was named the best supporting actress for her role, Feste the Clown; Little Theatre wardrobe co-ordinator Illka Louw picked up the best costume and prop design; while UCT alumnus Nicholas Ellenbogen walked off with the best supporting actor for his role as Sir Toby Belch.

Third-year theatre and performance student Charlie Keegan won the Most Promising Student award.

The university, including its alumni, received 18 of the 52 nominations up for grabs, and three of the five students in the most promising student category were from UCT.

"I feel hugely honoured and this is a step towards my ultimate dream of taking film and theatre to another level and be an inspiration to other actors," said Keegan.
