BYLINE: Arts writer

The Baxter Theatre's Zabalaza Theatre Festival ended with enthusiasm as elated young actors, directors, writers and theatre-makers celebrated its success at an awards ceremony in the venue's Golden Arrow Studio.

More than 200 participants rejoiced with fellow dramatists who received awards in 26 different categories for their achievements at the festival, which showcased more than 40 productions during its seven-day run.

Top honours for best production went to The Champion, written by Khayalethu Anthony. The well-crafted play is performed in English and South African vernacular. Anthony was a winner of the Zabalaza Festival in 2012 and this year, won the best newcomer/breakthrough award (Brett Goldin Award) at the Naledi Awards for his role as Solomon in Solomon and Marion.
