Contribution to SA theatre, film, media and/or performance

Besides his compositions and songs[1], he wrote a few musicals, and in the 1960s was encouraged by DALRO to produce works for schools and amateur groups, sometimes in association with the playwrights Anna Rudolph and Coenie Rudolph. Operettas for children include My Suiderland, Die Silwer Sambreeltjie (or The silver umbrella, with a libretto by Anna Rudolph and Coenie Rudolph) and Prys vir 'n meisie (with a libretto by Anna Rudolph, 1971).
