On August 31, for just one night only, talented learners from MRP Foundation supported schools will take to the stage alongside top local performers in the inspiring multi-media production Just Imagine, directed by local theatre legend Peter Court. Apart from an inspiring evening of music, dance and drama, guests will also be treated to a delicious three-course gourmet meal.
“We’re going to be joined by some of the top theatre performers on the Durban stage, adding their own unique dash of showbiz pizzaz to an already glittering occasion… if we can imagine it, we can design it and make it a reality,” said Court, the award-winning theatre director who is also the Creative Arts Implementation Partner for the MRP Foundation Schools Programme.
The fundraising event has attracted a host of renowned local performers who have generously offered their talents, including singers Anthony Stonier, Bryan Hiles, Darren King, Rowan Bartlett, Lyle Buxton,Marion Louden, Pinkie Mtshali, Samantha Landers, actors Clare Mortimer, Gill and Nicole of InterAct, Mthokozisi Zulu and musician Shemual Mahabeer all joining the cast.
The cast of local talent is set to share the stage with local schools for MRP Foundation’s celebration evening, showcasing up and coming young talent, under the wing of the vastly experienced Peter Court. Come and share in a fun night of great food, live music, dance and drama.
Proceeds from the event will assist the MRP Foundation, an NGO, with its vision to break the cycle of poverty and inequality in South Africa through its education and skills development programmes.
