Pupils to perform in musical showcase

Liberty Promenade in Mitchell’s Plain will present its annual Next Generation Musical Showcase on Saturday August 24.

Pupils from schools in the community will take to the stage at the mall, to represent their school in an inspiring musical showcase.

Each year, the Next Generation Musical Showcase embodies a different theme. These themes raise much needed awareness in the community and always intend on tackling crucial social issues, such as bullying, and embracing diversity. This year’s theme is “Save the Earth”.

Pupils will unite to sing and dance in the name of caring for the environment, their surroundings and the planet. The top performing schools will win their share of R60 000 while teachers and pupils from the top performing schools will also win prizes.

Fifteen to 20 schools will present musical performances at the mall, all written, performed and choreographed by the schools themselves.

Brenda Bibby, Liberty Promenade’s general manager, said: “There is so much talent in Mitchell’s Plain and we take pride in providing a platform for these kids to show off their creativity and skill. The pupils spend weeks perfecting their performances, and each year they out do themselves as they educate, entertain and inspire their audience.”

The event takes place at Liberty Promenade on Saturday August 24, from noon to 3pm. Entry is free.
