Big Time Auditions For Actors

Award winning South African playwright Mbongeni Ngema is embarking on a search for new talent to star in his musical titled "No. 43".

The production, which comes as the ANC celebrates 100 years of its existence, celebrates the life of Rebecca Makgomo Masilela, popularly known as uMagogo.

UMagogo, described by many as the Godmother of the ANC in exile, opened her house in Swaziland to cadres of the struggle, turning it into a home away from home for them for over 40 years.

President Mr. Jacob Zuma, John Nkadimeng and General Siphiwe Gebuza Nyanda are amongst those who are said to have lived at No. 43.

The auditions for a cast of 60 will be held in Gauteng at the Market Theatre, KZN at the Durban Playhouse, Mpumalanga at eMalahleni Civic Theatre, as well as Swaziland at Mbabane Theatre.

"No. 43" will be staged at the Market Theatre in October, which is the month dedicated to the life of OR Tambo in the ANC centenary celebrations.

Audition dates:

17 and 18 July 2012 - Emalahleni/Witbank Civic Theatre, Witbank

20 and 21 July 2012 - Mbabane Theatre, Swaziland

23, 24 and 25 July 2012 - The Playhouse, Durban

Call for Artists

Good day Dear Readers.

If you are an artist this will interest you:

The Africa Centre has begun preparation for Infecting The City Public Arts Festival that will be held in the first week of March 2013. 

The Infecting The City Festival offers a unique opportunity to bring art, music, dance and performance out of theatres and galleries and into the streets and public spaces of Cape Town’s Central Business District (CBD). Its aspirations are to challenge audiences, breach boundaries, shift perspectives and help make sense of the public spaces we occupy. The Festival’s aim is to develop a public art intervention that resonates and challenges people to connect with each other and the City, through art. 

Click here to view the Infecting The City Festival’s video

This is a call for visual and performing artists to submit works that are either completely new or have been previously staged. The work can be a full ensemble piece, an intervention, a live performance, a visual art piece, an installation, a video, a happening, working with technology, via social media, totally interactive or some other form newly imagined. All works should translate to or work within a public environment, and should actively engage intentional and incidental audiences. There is no specific theme, though works that concern issues of urbanity are encouraged.

If you or your company has an artwork in mind that fits with the Infecting the City Festival vision, please submit a detailed concept document (max. 500 words) including a full budget and a one page C.V. The Africa Centre is unlikely to fund a project more than R50 000. In these instances, applicants are encouraged to find other sources of funding as well. 

The call for submissions will be open from 1 July – 15 August 2012. A shortlist of applicants will be compiled by 1 September and finalists will be selected by 15 October.

Please email all applications or queries to

For more information about last year’s Festival, please visit, see the YouTube videos, or contact Felicia on 021 418 3336.
