Hermanus | Kalfiefees 2019 | Reminiscing memories

Andre Huguenet Theatre Group (1945) | Hermanus | South Africa

Kalfiefees 2019 Memories Glenda Pope

Winter has arrived in full force making indoor activities the order of the day. Whilst sorting through numerous boxes of old photographs I came across these and as it is the time for Kalfiefees and the appreciation of Afrikaans drama & literature, they seemed appropriate.

My father was captured at Tobruk and whilst he was away, my mother helped to pass away the time, by joining various amateur drama groups which toured the country towns, bringing plays and shows to out of the way places.

One of the best known groups being the “ Andre Huguenet Theatre Group”

These are some of the scenes from the production of ‘Die Sesde Gebod’ in 1945 –a translation of Patrick Hamilton’s play ‘Rope’

Small towns didn’t often have halls or stages so they performed in any space large enough to seat an audience, ie: churches or school halls. Often with the “curtains” consisting of a variety of fabrics strung across on wire. If you perhaps have more information about these artists or are interested in the rich history of Onrus River, be in touch with us!
