The South African State Theatre presents the premiere of Freedom the Musical, the new production by multi-award-winning playwright and director, Aubrey Sekhabi.
A strong cast of 47 members and a 13-piece band tell the tale of Phindile, a Tshwane University of Technology student and leader of the Fees Must Fall movement. Her life takes a sharp turn after the students protest at the Union Buildings in Pretoria. This story is a testament of Phindile’s determination to triumph regardless of the odds stacked against her by the system and society. She stops at nothing to fight for the freedom of students, for free education and ultimately her own freedom.
This production features Hip Hop star Simphele ‘PdotO’ Mnyandu, Simphiwe Ndlovu, Kabelo ‘Bonafide Billi’ Togoe, Motswako rapper Chad da Don, baritone Otto Maidi, and 2017 Idols tope ten finalist Thokozile Ndimande.
