Shakespeare Festival: A Midsummer Night's Dream

BY SBONGAKONKE KHOSWA, GRADE 11

Being a part of Lalela Project has been an incredible experience, as we get opportunities that we wouldn’t normally be exposed to. When I heard our facilitator talking about auditions for A Midsummer Nights Dream I saw this as a great learning experience.

July holidays were spent rehearsing.I made awesome new friends from other communities. During this time I fell in love with acting and it is my dream to become an actor. On the night of the performance, the energy was high!I was really nervous but I just had to remember that I was committed and that we would be fine. Our families were so proud of us. They knew we were giving it our best. Since joining LalelaI have developed a strong passion for art and I have been fortunate to gain experience with the Shakespeare School Festival. Thank you Lalela for making this possible!
