During its second run at The South African State Theatre in 2004, the production attracted more than 25,000 people with twenty seven performances; it will surely attract much needed audiences to our theatre.  It is a winner and with challenges facing our educational system,  arts and culture must step up and help us look back and remember that this democracy was achieved through blood and tears and that education is a right and not a privilege. 


2016 marked the fortieth anniversary of the 1976 uprising and massacre of young people of South Africa. Sarafina - The Broadway Hit Musical is no doubt one theatrical piece that remains and will forever be a constant reminder of the pain,  the misery and most importantly the hope that young people had for the South Africa that we are enjoying today. Furthermore,  this is the time to tell our own stories.
