An excited group was eager to hit the road for this year’s drama tour to Cape Town. Drama teacher, Suiyen Smith, not only uses the tour to practically substantiate the course work studied in Dramatic Arts, but also to expose the students to different aspects of this art form.
This year they joined forces with UCT and viewed Theatre in Education productions, participated in a drumming circle, visited Cape Town online magazine and had lectures from its founder as well as National Geographic photographer, Yann Macherez and attended a creative writing class by a slam poet and ex-Generations actress. The highlight was, undoubtedly, the production “West Side Story” at the Artscape Theatre. These experiences stirred a new love for arts in the students.
