Mobilising the collective and individual dreams of our country’s youth through Performing Arts and Education.
The Festival offers high school students the opportunity to engage their education curriculum for the first time on a professional stage regardless of background, ability or location. This thrilling, non-competitive environment builds capacity, character and allows students to explore aptitudes in a range of work fields such as history/geography consultants; wardrobe and props advisors; student company managers; creative directors in music and art; marketing, sound and lighting, directing and various other career-shaping experiences.
This year’s festival has 20 schools taking to the stage. Learners from different regions within the City of Joburg will take on one stage to share in their humanity, have fun and learn through theatre and performance.
