Nicole Butow
Nicole Butow will definitely be a handful and is always quick to crack a joke.
This feisty bombshell has a passion for the stage, the screen and the incredible art form that is the Clown. Nicole has been captivated by the arts since she can remember. She has a passion for making the arts and play easily accessible to all. She believes that everyone has the right to experience beauty, engage in healing, delight in playing and thriving in feeling a great sense of belonging. She loves to play with words, props and different dialects. Nicole challenges you to “Become a child again – LAUGH!”
One of Nicole’s favorite quote is by Julie Andrews. “Use your knowledge and your heart to stand up for those who can’t stand, speak for those who can’t speak and be a beacon of light for those whose lives have become dark.” She’ strives to do this each and every day and she hopes it has put some light in you.

Bianca Pieterse
Bianca is the epitome of sunshine personified.
A South Africa actress and dancer. Passionate about telling authentic and important stories.
She is interested in finding new and interesting ways of creating art that combines various mediums to provide a whole new entertainment experience. A dancer, a dreamer and a storyteller. Her favorite quote is by James Dean. “Dream like you’ll live forever, live like you’ll die today.”
She hopes this inspires you as much as it has inspired her.

Anke Snyman
An actress, singer and poetry writer with a creative mind and bold spirit interested in creating and telling stories that are visually interesting and exciting. She also believes that the bigger your dreams are, the bigger the chances are of realising them are. Anke has a passion for boxing and physical combat. Her favorite quote is by Jon Jones. “We really do paint our world with our thoughts and level of self belief.” So she urges you to believe in yourself.

Jody Werner
As sarcastic as he is short, he’s a lot of trouble packed in an average size package.
A South African actor and dancer still wanting to learn more and expand his horizons. He is interested in things that challenge his acting ability. He recently took on musical theatre and through that is training his singing voice while performing. His motto is, “If you’re having fun while working, you’re doing your job right.” Jody’s favourite quote is by Peter Parker. “No man can win every battle; but no man should fall without a struggle.”
