Our actors for a day who joined us on 9 Dec 2018 – our last session of 2018 had an awesome time with us. They found their voices, flexed their muscles, conquered their fears and entertained an enthusiastic audience.
Be an Actor for a Day is a popular theatre activity for all ages and Circle Productions can tailor-make sessions and add value to a host of corporate and training programmes.
Check out images below from Be an Actor for a Day 9 December 2018.

Final days of rehearsal now as we bring all the elements together to create a wonderful show that is both entertaining and educational! What does it mean to be 120 years old and how has the school and its environment changed?
We have packed a lot into just 80 minutes and we look forward to having an audience on Thursday.
This is the cast rehearsing Shosholoza – a song of mineworkers having to travel to and from their homes in Africa to work on the mines. In the nineties it became a song that celebrated a unified SA in the sporting world.
So, rehearsals are hotting up and our learners are enjoying this journey of discovery – both of the school’s heritage and legacy AND of their own talents and the joy of performance.
We are excited to have a past learner, Chantal Stanfield, join us for the show to perform her “hot off the press” number, Walk it Off. Our friends have been wonderful in supporting this show – and we say a big thank you to Trish and Annie of the Dance Project who have done our choreography for us.
Chantal has been learning the choreography long distance – check out the video clip here.
We joined a host event run by Air BnB Cape Town to facilitate and run a short workshop on Public Speaking. Our Be an Actor for a Day programme has some effective exercises so we introduced those and shared some preparation techniques and easy tips for Performance and Public Speaking.
