The National Theatre of Namibia will stage an all-female Namibian musical, Every Woman, under its Director’s Lab Project at the NTN Backstage theatre from 1 to 3 August 2019.
The musical is written & directed by Senga Brockerhoff with Musical Direction by Lize-Leandra Ann Ehlers and Choreography by Nikhita Winkler.
The plot surrounds Grace who is hosting her friend Amelia’s bridal shower with her close friends. Also at the party is Amelia’s pedantic sister Amanda and Grace’s ice-queen boss, Victoria. The women discuss motherhood, men, marriage and all things in between. But later during a drinking game, secrets and resentment pour out which threaten to tear the sisters apart and perhaps even derail the wedding.
The musical features the star-studded cast of JD Januarie as the bride (Amelia), a sensitive soul who’s always tried to do the right thing. Amelia’s overly critical and pedantic sister Amanda played by Senga Brockerhoff, with Chantel ‘Enchante’ /Uiras and Lize Ehlers playing the roles of Grace & Ruth, high school friends of the bride. Grace’s cheeky assistant Frankie is played by Mikiros Garoёs.
Lavinia Kapewasha plays Victoria, a hard-nosed businesswoman who worked her way to the top of the advertising industry, also Amanda & Grace’s boss. Heather ‘Miss H’ Dennis plays Maxine, a florist and childhood friend to the bride, with Jennifer Timbo as Mitzy a free-spirited hippy with great care for the environment and her friends.
