Fleur du Cap Theatre Awards at the Baxter

Treat yourself to a red carpet experience and celebrate South Africa’s best theatre productions

Ready yourself for a night with top up-and-coming talent on Sunday, 20 March 2016 as the Baxter Theatre hosts the 51st annual Fleur du Cap Theatre Awards – the event of the year in the South African theatre calendar.

The Fleur du Cap Theatre Awards has announced its 2015 nominees, reflecting a rich realm of talent seen on stages traversing the Western Cape. The glamorous ceremony will personify a fusion of cultures, food and Fleur du Cap wine, not to mention a selection of the veritable who’s who in the industry.

The ceremony offers multiple different awards in 20 categories, celebrating every aspect of the theatre industry in SA. With over 86 productions from 2015 eligible for the awards, the nominees are diverse and wide ranging.. Categories include Best Performance by a Lead Actor/Actress in a Play, Best Director, Best Costumes Design, and Best Performance by a Lead Actor/Actress in a Musical or Music Theatre Show, along with many others. 

The judges for this year’s awards were Africa Melane, Dr Beverley Brommert, Christine Moritz, Eugene Yiga, Gillian Mitchell, Herman van der Westhuizen, Johan van Lill, Marina Griebenow, Peter Tromp, Steyn du Toit and Tracey Saunders.

In total, 66 student performances were considered in the search for the Most Promising Student Award, with nominations including Joburg funny man Schalk Bezuidenhout, and fellow UCT entrant Khathu Ramabulana.

Both Jonathan Roxmouth and Lynette Kenned, the lead actors from the smash hit West Side Story, are nominated in the Best Performance by a Lead Actor/Actress in a Musical or Music Theatre Show category, with Kenned additionally nominated for her performance in Orpheus in Africa. 

The awards this year would not be complete without mention of David Kramer’s Orpheus in Africa and Graham Weir‘s Dead Yellow Sands; both nominated for the Best New South African Script title.

With every award carrying a cash prize of R15 000, the stakes are high and the competition is fierce. All productions must have run for a minimum of eight performances over a three week period at the same venue. Guests at the ceremony will be able to honour the high caliber of artistry we have in this country, whilst also enjoying Fleur du Cap wines and gourmet dishes infused with artisanal salt from all over the world.
