Stage actors hopeful for a turnaround

Stage actors remain hopeful for a turnaround following the devastating impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Many theatrical festivals were either cancelled or postponed indefinitely.

However, some have started with small screenings, while others have gone digital.

The Western Cape Department of Arts and Culture says the arts lost more than R58 million in revenue when the lockdown was first introduced in March last year.

Now festival organisers say they were happy they could start bringing productions back to theatres.
