Ikhwezi stars are Baxter-borne

19 March 2007

Development theatre once again celebrates its annual triumph with the Ikhwezi Theatre Festival 2007, currently on in the Baxter Sanlam Studio, with 14 new plays running daily from 9 to 24 March.

It is the culmination of a series of workshops that started in October, when 25 young directors and 20 young actors were mentored by big names in the drama industry.

These workshops form the foundation of the overall vision of the Ikhwezi Festival - a Baxter Theatre Centre initiative started in 1998 - as a community development project. The festival brings together some of the best community based drama groups in the Western and Eastern Cape.

The festival runs daily, Mondays to Saturdays, at 10h00, 12h00, 13h30, 15h00 and 19h00. Tickets cost R30, with discounts of R15 for bookings of 10 or more. For discounted block and schools bookings call Sandiswa on 021 680 3991, or contact Ntombesizwe on 021 680 3980 for any festival enquiries. Book through Computicket on 083 915 8000 or the Baxter Theatre Centre on 021 680 3989.
