Showtime Management and international partner Selladoor Worldwide have postponed the South African tour of the We Will Rock You musical to 2022. South Africa is currently in its third wave of Covid-19 infections and, as such, the government has implemented precautions that only allows for a total audience of 100 people.

Covid-19 has had a devastating effect not only on the local economy but on the progress in upskilling young people in preparation for a digitised future. The solutions may be closer, and fresher than we anticipate. The deputy minister in the presidency, Ms Thembi Siweya, is set to host a delegation of young, African trailblazers excelling in sports, arts and literature at the Union Buildings on Thursday, 6 May 2021.
The purpose of the session is to celebrate prominent young people's talent and explore possible collaborations with the government. The National Development Plan (NDP) calls for all of us to build a better Africa and the world. These young people have already shown that they have the potential to carry the baton and catapult Africa to greater heights. The session is also intended to kickstart Africa Month and position the youth at the centre of Africa's development.
Brand South Africa will, through its Play Your Part programme partner with the deputy minister in the presidency and the Department of Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation for the session, to promote a culture of active citizenry among the youth as we combine efforts to raise up and inspire a renewed Africa.
The rising stars include the renowned praise poet Masinga Xivambu, who once ushered President Ramaphosa to Parliament for the State of the Nation Address; Simthandile Tshabalala, the award-winning young golfer; an emerging author, Angel Mkhawana; and international award-winning author Stacey Fru.
Details are as follows:
Date: 6 May 2021
Venue: Office 216, East Wing, Union Buildings, Pretoria
NB: Members of the media are advised to communicate their confirmation and identity numbers in advance for access to the Union Buildings.
