Greg King, the founder of KZN’s top theatre productions company, has come up with a creative way to drum up funds for KickstArt, while providing a fun and useful product for kids, and some adults!
Greg, the company’s multi-award winning, highly gifted set and costume designer, has used some of his lockdown time to create a limited edition series of fun children’s masks, each made by hand with love and care by him personally.
“We hope that you are missing us as much as we are missing you! These really are challenging times, and we all need a little creativity and colour to help us get through them,” he said.
The series is called “Lions and Tigers and Bears”, and include super-cute animals and fairies, that will make any child actually enjoy wearing them and playing “Let’s Pretend” on a daily basis. They are hand-washable and conform to government requirements.
Each mask costs R150 and the money generated from sales will go towards keeping KickstArt Theatre alive until it can bring back magical entertainment to the stage again.
**If you would like to treat the kids in your life and help the theatre at the same time, please contact Greg directly via WhatsApp on 083 544 2006 to place your orders. He will revert with banking details, and once payment is received, he will set up delivery (if you live in the Durban area!) Orders from outside the Durban area can be couriered, at an additional cost.
The multi-award winning production company has put on a number of hits shows in Durban, such as The BFG, Charlotte’s Web, Sweeney Todd, Camelot and Little Shop of Horrors, annual pantos and has performed to packed houses in Joburg and Cape Town in collaboration with Pieter Toerien.
