There is great excitement brewing for the seventh annual Baxter Zabalaza Theatre Festival in March where productions from all over the Western Cape will be showcased. The hugely popular development festival kicks off with the Zabalaza Weekend on Saturday, 18 and Sunday 19 March when all venues and spaces in the theatre complex will pulsate with dynamic and diverse artistic activities. This will be followed by the Main Programme from Monday 20 to Friday 24 March daily and culminating in the award ceremony on the Saturday. Here the best of the festival production will be selected, along with several other awards in various categories. The winner will receive a full run at the Baxter later in the year. The participating productions will be selected from the eight mini festivals which take place on 14 Jan (Robertson), 15 Jan (Kraaifontein), 21 Jan (Athlone), 22 Jan (Delft), 28 Jan (Khayelitsha), 29 Jan (Nyanga). The winning productions from the Eden Drama Festival, the Cape Winelands Drama Festival and the Overberg Drama Festival, will also be showcased.
