“Every child and young person has rights, no matter who they are or where they live.”
Gansbaai Melodrama Trust was established in 1999 when a few locals got together and formulated a plan to ‘pay-it-forward’ to those underprivileged members of the Gansbaai community who needed a little assistance.
Over the years the incentive has morphed into a trust that works solely for underprivileged children in-and-around Gansbaai. It is now known as the Gansbaai Melodrama Kinder Trust.
Gansbaai Melodrama Kinder Trust uses funds generated at the Melodrama as well as additional donations from the public to finance:
Gansbaai Melodrama Kinder Trust is about having fun while making a difference in the lives of those who need them most!
Gansbaai’s most colourful characters gather to put together a musical production of note! While the bulk of the shows are performed for the public to generate funds, one special evening is reserved for the children who the money is being collected for. Each child enjoys full V.I.P treatment and experiences the magic of the theatre with cooldrinks and snacks.
Gansbaai Melodrama Kinder Trust is always on the hunt for new stars!
To join the fun and to be a part of the spectacular Melodrama production, keep an eye out for adverts in the local newspaper where and when auditions will be held. The lucky candidates will then be assigned their characters and songs and the winter months will be spent practising for the big event.
The Melodrama is legendary for the friendships that are formed along the way.
Gansbaai Melodrama Kinder Trust would like to thank you for your generosity. Remember every cent counts and will help enhance the life of an underprivileged child!
