Theater runs deep in my family. My Father met my Mother on stage at a City Of Johannesburg Theater production. I love going to the Theater, the costume jewelry, the lights, the stage sets, the music, the costumes, the energy that only theater can create never fail to capture a part of my heart and soul. I love everything about theater and perhaps one of these days I may revisit my child hood years and perform again onstage.
Theater in South Africa contributes 14% of the countries National GDP. Spending a night at such an awe inspiring gala event will not easily be forgotten. Not only were the people gracious and elegant, there was something special that captured my heart and all my love for the arts has reignited the stage loving school girl inside of me.
The stage performances were incredible and the acceptance speeches were genuine and heart felt. I am proud to be South African and this will be the first of many posts about our South African stage. Today I bring you a few pictures of my favourite outfits that were worn last night.All the ladies looked breathtakingly beautiful. I loved every second of the night including the tears that came with the life time achievers award and the community theater awards.
Till Next Time
