Lights! Action! Camera!

Posted on July 24, 2009

I Am A Camera can be classified as a romantic comedy with serious undertones, mirroring the approaching evil of the Second World War. The plot focuses on the rare friendship between the struggling young writer, Chris, and the cabaret artist and wannabe actress, Sally Bowles. He earns a living giving English lessons in Berlin. As a writer, he is the “camera” in the play, turning the “photo’s” into writing. She sings in the sleazy Lady Windermere Nightclub, and flirts with rich men, until her mother arrives on the scene.

I Am A Camera is directed by Estelle Zeeman, with Abri le Roux as assistant director and scenographic advisor, and Nico Scheepers as choreographer. Sally is played by Gretha Pietersen, and Chris by Emile Hager. The technical production support will be provided by UP Arts.

You are advised to book early for this production which has enjoyed many sell-out runs. The production runs from 24 July to 1 August 2009 at 19:00 every evening except Monday, in the UP Arts Lier Theatre.
