Theatre royalty graces the premiere of local OR Tambo production

Light at the end of the tunnel, the theatre production celebrating the life, struggle, and legacy of Oliver Tambo, premiered last Friday night at the Germiston Theatre.

Zwelibanzi Sibiya, the director, writer and organiser of the production, hosted a gala dinner for VIP guests, who were also treated to a VIP showing of the play.

The play starred phenomenal local actors such as Lerato Mvelase and Siphiwe Nkosi.

Among the stars were also Naledi Awards adjudicator Odette Motaung, Lihan Pretorius (executive director of the awards) and Dawn Lindburgh (CEO of the awards).

Ashleigh Kroll and Gareth Lovell Davies, directors from Stardust Theatre Productions, were also on the VIP list and seated with delegates from the Department of Arts and Culture.

Members of the South African Community Theatre Association (Sancta) were also at the premiere.

The play depicts how Tambo liberated and lead many South Africans to freedom under the apartheid government.

In addition to the production, the metro is hosting an educational tour for learners to the OR Tambo Cultural Precinct in Wattville, Benoni, where Oliver Tambo was laid to rest.

Through this tour, the metro aims to educate the youth of today about Tambo’s courageous legacy.
