Talent show

Promising young performers shone in the Mzansi Many Roots One Tree talent show.

Cape Town’s youth showcased their talent in a show, Mzansi Many Roots One Tree at the Artscape on June 21. The show, which took place as part of Youth Month celebrations, was put together by singer Vicky Sampson, pictured on the left, producer Gabi le Roux and vocalist Nini Schlechter, as a platform to groom youth in often ignored communities to become fully-skilled entertainment professionals. Through their youth development NPC they teach these kids technical skills, the ins and outs of contracts and how to become multi-skilled across all artistic genres to become well-rounded artists. The show was a showcase of the skills transferred to these select young cast members while also raising funds for the initiative. The theatre had a full audience, who all braved the stormy weather in support of the youth.
