We have passed the rehearsal half-way mark for Dim-Dep Musical: Faces of Environmental Success! A production where youth perform alongside some of KwaZulu-Natal’s legends. I watched mesmerized as the cast gave their all, passionate and committed to the craft and the script. We had a short storytelling session during one of the rehearsals and the cast showed depth of character, life experiences and professional accomplishments.
When asked why they were in an environmental musical theatrical production the answers were varied though similar:
- An environmental production is so different and refreshing
- We get to go out to the community to share our messages, and perform on stage
- We only have one earth and we need to respect it
- It’s time we all started to work together
- Environmentalism is so vital for our future
- If we don’t stand up – who will?
We are soon to begin the Dim-Dep Enviro Blitz! Community activations, outreach projects and full length shows. We need to pull together for One Life, One Earth.
