POP in the Park : a (belated) 9th Birthday
30 incredible creatives
Sun 28th Mar 3pm
Our annual birthday party is a little late – But it gives us an excuse and time to really make sure its a big and original (and safe) celebration.
Every year, in celebration of our birthday, we re-create the same event that started us off all this years ago: 24 Hours in the City. For 24 Hours in the City, we get a number of awesome creatives together to bring our audiences a few brand new short theatre pieces that are created and produced over 24 Hours and then staged at The Market Theatre Lab.
This time, not only because its our 10th ANNUAL EVENT, but because of – you know- that other thing, we are doing things a little differently! We are going daytime, outdoors and super socially distanced with POP in the Park! We’ll be getting 20 creatives together at 3pm on a Saturday and will collectively create something (in 6 different teams) to be staged and experienced in a public space by 3pm on Sunday.
The public space is the park (Delta Park).
Join us there for a super fun, family-friendly play in the park!
The proceeds go toward bursaries for Students at th22e Market Theatre Lab.
Bring kids, puppies and a picnic blanket and join us on Sunday 28 March at 3pm to revel in the joy of brand new creations and community. We would love to see you there. Location will be confirmed on bookings.
Tickets can be purchased on our site for R 100, or you can choose to make a donation in any amount via our site. There will also be snap scan and payfast facilities for donations on site
