With 4 branches nationwide, the theatre school with a purpose, brings that purpose to Roodepoort Theatre in 2021 in a bid to preserve and promote youth development in the field of drama education and performing arts. LALT House of Growth (HOG) believes in a dream that every child and adult who has the desire to perform can enhance and develop their daily lives through the power of performing arts.

With more than a decade’s experience in theatre we believe in inclusivity, diversity, drive, talent and development to provide a safe and healing space for all students who have a love for performing arts. Since 2012 LALT has become a community of driven theatre specialists for talent development and has worked with the best production companies in SA and abroad to provide students with the best theatre education opportunities that money can buy. Our student features and credits include: Drama Mammas, Vergewe My, Hoor My Sien My Soen My, WIAN, The-LouwDown Documentary, Sound of Music, Agter toe Deure, Spook van Uniondale and several commercial features. Books published under director of the Theatre School, Louw Breytenbach, include Volmaakte Gebrokenheid and most recently, Sê jou Sê.

LALT not only specializes in talent development but hosts workshops for corporate companies and adults in need of soft skills development for presentations and public speaking. LALT offers a holistic approach to the development of the artist with artist management, training in self-confidence and preparation for the world of acting across our branches. Our mission is to provide individual attention at affordable prices to develop the youth and equip our community.

Owner of the Johannesburg branch, Corné Wepener-Stemmet, is a dedicated performer and educational theatre expert with a drive and passion for the performing arts. Our individual and small group classes make it a breeze for any student to develop to their full potential while being shaped by the best hands in the business. With passion and an unwavering love for performance, we make it our mission to place every child’s potential at the centre stage of our classes.
