PACT Youth Company

Jump to navigation Jump to search

This company, a continuation of the NTO Youth Group (NTO Jeuggroep), was transferred to the newly formed PACT and existed from 1963 till 1974. Initially run by Eghardt van der Hoven , with members of the former NTO company, as such as Cobus Rossouw, Jannie Gildenhuys and Carel Trichardt.

They were funded by a grant from the Transvaal Education Department and other educational authorities to do theatre for schools.

When Robin Malan became head of the group in 1974, he changed the name to PACT Playwork and shifted the emphasis to TIE.
