This is #WhatExperienceLooksLike
Little Theatre - Big Talent!
2018 was a memorable year at the Auto & General Theatre on the Square. We staged over 18 different theatrical productions and 45 different classical music concerts in addition to many once-off productions that range from Sunday evening jazz concerts to educational talks and conferences. We have proved that the Auto & General Theatre on the Square still delivers nothing but the hottest in local and international entertainment.
With several return seasons – due to public demand, we were thrilled to welcome back Fiona Ramsey in Blonde Poison, Chantal Stanfield in From Koe’siestes To Kneidlach, Jannie Du Toit, Susan Mouton and Charnie Jonker in Bonjour Monseir Brel, Charl Du Plessis in Charl Du Plessis Plays Gershwin and Gramham Hopkins and Antony Coleman in Freud’s Last Session.
We were thrilled to introduce young people to the theatre by producing two special kiddies’ shows, in addition to various school festivals and school shows for various acting and singing academies.
If there was one thing the theatre wasn’t short of, it was all the laughs. Thanks to the hysterical Annie Robinson and Mark Mulder in the successful Fawlty Flowers, Daniel Mpilo Richards in controversial Land Acts, Nik Rabinowitz in Fortyfied, Stuart Taylor in Funny You Should Say That and Riaad Moosa in Life Begins as well as the international play Odd Man Out which returns on the 30th April for a four week run. Another theatrical highlight was the 10th anniversary of the South African classic, Green Man Flashing by Mike Van Graan as well as the moving theatrical gem, The Revlon Girl directed by Steven Feinstein.
We are proud to announce we were nominated for eleven Naledi Nominations for 2018, including four nominations for The Revlon Girl, two for Land Acts and two for The Boy Who Cried Ninja. We would like to thank all who were involved in making 2018 a magical year of great theatre. This year we celebrate 22 years of great local and international theatre in the heart of Sandton, if you were wondering, this is #WhatExperienceLooksLike.
