Showcase 2018 is an extravaganza of drama, dance and music. Presented on the 11th and 12th of May, Showcase is sure to delight audiences as much as Listen and Little Shop Of Horrors have in the past.
The show is made up of two one act plays, both of which will represent Jeppe Girls at the Festival for Excellence in Dramatic Arts at the Joburg Theatre in May. The plays challenge our views on society and ask us to step beyond ourselves toward an empathetic and kind way of living. The Other Way, a new play written by Ms M. Pugin, shows us a group of vagrants who battle it out for society’s scraps. Born Free, written by the cast of this play, challenges the ideas that we are, in fact, born free.
We’re also pleased to announce that a dance show will also take the stage in Showcase. This story-through-dance is called Patriarchy, Pain and Passion and takes the audience through the journey of a woman who finds hope and power. Choreographed by Jeppe Old Girl, Meghan Jarvis, this piece brings together hip-hop, jazz, contemporary, modern and classical styles of dancing. Finally the Orchestra From Scratch will round off the evening with beautiful music.
The Parents Association will set up a restaurant on the lawns that will be open from 17:00 and serve dinner and refreshments should audiences want to come early.
Tickets are available from Mrs Lottriet from the 11th of April 2018 at R50 per ticket.
