LTC Starts Performance Training Programme for ‘Young Artistes’

Coastweek-- Two institutions initially charting their own paths have come together for the common good of supporting each other in the field of talent promotion and enhancement, reports PETER ODUOR-ODOTE.

These efforts in the long term are expected to help sustain the youthful performing artistes.

The Little theatre has started a performance training programme for young artistes to fully help them realize their potential.

Rotary Nyali on the other hand interacts with various community programmes and is interested in a partnership that will enhance the youthful talent for improved livelihoods.

A unique forum is therefore created here where all performance artistes including dancers, poets, puppeteers can mature and showcase their talent in bigger platforms for income generation.

The first graduates of the LTC training programme performed in Betrayal in the city  recently and some are in the cast of “Home is Where your cothes are” which starts today 17thMarch  at 6pm (premiere and cocktail) and on Saturday 18th March..


Theatre veterans | Coastweek

  Coastweek-- Theatre veterans Peter Mbugua (Phillip) and Ashik Yusuf (Major).

The play revolves are “Major” ably handled by comedy veteran Ashik Yusuf.

When his wife, Elizabeth (Eunice Rimba), runs off with Ronald (Masha of Ufalme Africa), the Major (Ashik Yusuf) decides to solve his debts problems by letting the basement flat of his wife’s house-to two different tenants simultaneously!

Jill (Georgia Lenny), who works in Brussels, only uses the flat at weekends, while Philip (Peter Mbugua), a barrister, lives there during the week.

The Major simply swaps over their belongings at the beginning and end of each week and everything runs smoothly until Jill is unexpectedly given a week off work, just as Philip returns to the flat after his weekend out of town.

Further complications arise with the arrival of Elizabeth and Ronald, particularly when Elizabeth lets the flat again.

The Major’s resourcefulness is stretched to breaking point but after a wild confusion of mistaken identities, awkward confrontations and hectic misunderstandings, all ends happily for the Major and assorted tenants!

The other roles are played by Davies Lule Lule (Humphrey) recently in “Don’t Lose the place”  Brenda (Patience Mathenge) who “graduated” from Betrayal in the City and Jackline (Anne Awuor Amoth) who is becoming a household name in theatre and is destined to go far going by her consistency on stage and high acting qualities.

The play is directed by Ashik Yusuf and Hillary Namanje.

The producer is Nabil Adamjee of Rotary Club Mombasa Nyali assisted by Peter Oduor-Odote of Little Theatre Club.

The back team is composed of Lisa Kibutu, Rahab Nderi, Gillie Owino, Kulola Mlaghui and the membership of both Little Theatre Club and Rotary club of Mombasa Nyali
