Charles Austin Theatre marks 46th anniversary

– Preparations for the Charles Austin Theatre’s 46th anniversary set
for March 21 this month are at an advanced stage with various performances from
top artists lined up.
The Charles Austin
Theater, which was opened on March 06, 1974, has grown in leaps and bounds, and
on many occasions proving to be a force to reckon with.
Charles Austin Theatre artistic
director Michael Banda said he was pleased that the theatre had stood the test
of time.
“We have come so far
and we hope we will be here for many more years to come. Forty-six years of
existence is not a joke and we have to look back and thank all those who have
supported us to be where we are today.
“We are going to have belated
birthday celebrations as we have been mobilising resources to make the event as
colourful as it can get. We want to make it memorable,” said Banda.
He said there were many
activities and entertainment programmes lined up for the day.
“The celebrations will
be held at the theatre and we have a lot of activities and entertainment activities
lined up. The Charles Austin Theatre will perform a play titled Mari Mari while
standup comedy and music will also take centre stage.
“There will be plays
from schools while pupils will also take the opportunity to learn more about
the arts industry,” said Banda.
He said adults will pay
$15 to take part in the celebrations while children will enjoy free entry.
Charles Austin Theatre
is among the five functioning theatres which have managed to remain standing in
the face of an underfunded and underappreciated sector.
