As anticipation mounts for the 2017 National Arts Festival (NAF), which is scheduled to take place from 29 June to 8 July, the University of Johannesburg Arts & Culture (a division of FADA) is preparing to stage its biggest, most diverse programme yet. Underpinned by sustainable partnerships, this year’s line-up is marked by innovative theatre, thought-provoking discussion and all-round entertainment. With five productions, SA Shorts Vol II #2minutenoodles readings, and Think!Fest’s POP UPS, it furthers UJ Arts & Culture’s growing footprint at one of South Africa’s most important arts and cultural events.

This year’s UJ Arts & Culture student production gets a little playful, with a performance that speaks to the Festival’s younger audiences. Director Alby Michaels, and director-in-training Ayanda Bulose, bring the Roald Dahl classic James and the Giant Peach (adapted to stage by David Wood) to life. The play, set in a giant peach pit and filled with an odd assortment of characters, bristles with Dahl’s signature wit and humour. This whirlwind of adventure is a must see on the NAF’s newly established Family Fare programme.
