■ The Hottentots Holland Dramatic Society will hold an audition on Sunday November 12, at 6pm, at the Playhouse Theatre in Lourensford Road, Somerset West, for its Christmas Variety Show, which will take place between Thursday December 21 and Sunday December 23. All ages are welcome to try out and be part of this special show. For the audition, prepare one of your favourite Christmas Holiday songs – you may use a backing track (provide your own) or play your own instrument. Dancers are also encouraged to audition. Please prepare a small piece of your own choreography. Any extra special variety entertainment items are welcome. For more information contact Ash on 061 108 7092.
