The arts community gathered in George, Western Cape, to save and restore the historic George Arts Theater.
Over the next few days, the first Grand Ol ’Dame Art Festival will be held to raise money for the 144-year-old listed building, which is in dire need of some TLC.
Some of South Africa’s best performers, such as Lizz Meiring and Marion Holm, as well as other locals, are also on the program.
Reneé van Rensburg, president of the George Arts Society: “We decided to hold a festival called Grand Ol’ Dame because we invited two women from the South African theater, Lizz Meiring and Marion Holm, and the whole plan is to raise money. we could repair our ceiling. Since the building is 144 years old, maintenance is one of our big problems, and apparently there have been floods and winds in George recently, and there are holes in our ceilings that we need to repair. ”
