47th annual fleur du cap theatre awards 2012

Fleur du Cap Awards 2012

Nominees and VIP guests were greeted on the red carpet with champagne, cocktails and canapés at the prestigious 47th annual Fleur du Cap Theatre Awards, held at the Baxter Theatre on Sunday 18 March 2012. Director and choreographer Alfred Hinkel took a new approach to this year’s entertainment and created a production that involved Heather Mac, dancers from his new company Garage and the two Masters of Ceremony, Alan Committie and Hannes van Wyk. It was certainly a magical evening for ‘Klaasvakie’ with Wilna Snyman winning Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Play and Nicole Hanekom receiving the prize for Best Performance by a Supporting Actress in a Play. The award for Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Play went to Carel Nel for ‘Die Rebellie van Lafras Verwey’. Actor and lecturer Christopher Weare was awarded the Fleur Du Cap Lifetime Achievement award for his contribution to South African theatre. With 20 categories this year, winners were awarded a beautiful silver medallion and R15,000 making a Fleur du Cap the most coveted award in the industry.

I had the opportunity once again to chat to a legend in South African TV and theatre, Wilna Snyman and Tinarie van Wyk Loots as they pay homage to their mothers.
