CPT drama school shares highlights of recent trip to Moscow

The Waterfront Theatre school recently returned from representing South Africa at the the BRICS Drama Festival in Russia.

The Waterfront Theatre School recently travelled to Russia for the BRICS festival where they performed a condensed version of "The Servant of Two Masters" and gave it a uniquely African spin.

Founder and Managing director of The Waterfront Theatre College Delia Sainsbury shared their Russia experience and future endeavors of the college.

When I got a call that we have been invited to represent South Africa at the BRICS Drama Festival, I thought it was a gag. I didn't take it seriously, I said yes sure.

Delia Sainsbury, Founder and Managing director of The Waterfront Theatre College

Three hours later I called the number back, only to be greeted with a voice from someone in the Russian Embassy, then I thought this is actually for real.

Delia Sainsbury, Founder and Managing director of The Waterfront Theatre College

We walked into the park and saw this massive auditorium and we presented The Servant of Two Masters and each country presented it in their own particular style.... I cant describe the experience, it is unbelievable.

Delia Sainsbury, Founder and Managing director of The Waterfront Theatre College
