Drama Buzz.Inc is a drama group for young people and seniors.

Also found as Drama Buzz or more often as Dramabuzz.

Dramabuzz Junior

Founded in 2009 by Felicity Britz, Dramabuzz was created to provide homeschool families with a facility where their children and teens could develop their acting and singing skills in a group setting and participate in stage performances. To this end they have put on an annual full-length musical since their founding, using a cast ranging in age from 10 to 18.

Seen as a communal effort, all performances are staged by volunteering parents, although Dramabuzz occasionally outsources some services, such as prop building and costume making. However, the bulk of the production work is done by the parents of the students, including the directors and choreographers for the shows.

Dramabuzz's intention is not to provide individual training for students, but through their work the volunteering choreographers and directors do help to teach them the fundamentals of drama.

The first production was The King and I in 2009. This was followed by:

2021: Walt Disney's Aladdin performed in the Roodepoort Theatre

2022: Rogers and Hammerstein's Cinderella performed in the Roodepoort Theatre (22-24 September).

Dramabuzz Senior

In 2022 Dramabuzz Senior, an offshoot from the original Dramabuzz, was created to cater for older thespians by putting on productions that have the same values as the shows done by the junior troupe. It is open to anyone who is 18 years or older. The first production by this group is George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion, scheduled for 2023.
