National Eisteddfod Academy’s Young Performer Showcase 2017

The NEA Showcase concerts have become a cultural highlight as illustrated by sold-out performances and the high standard of performances. These events feature some of the best young performers in drama, music and dance as identified in the various regions of the National Eisteddfod of South Africa. The eisteddfod top achievers will also be acknowledged and awarded at these events.

The Showcase dates for 2017 to be presented at the Roodepoort Theatre are as follows:

25 -27 September

18, 20, 21,25,27,28 and 31 October

The success of the NEA is due, in large part, to the variety of events that provide ongoing opportunities for the development of the talented learner. The importance of this project in building self-esteem and confidence in the youth cannot be underestimated.

All recipients of diploma awards in the eisteddfod can look forward to entering the NEA Awards Competition in March and May 2018. This competition provides the next level of participation where the best young performers from various regions in the country can compete for prize money of about R50 000.
