These performers will now be based in Cape Town, where they will study and rehearse hard every week. Their performance for viewers’ votes every Saturday night will be broadcast from the Theatre On The Bay in Camps Bay. Viewers will have the chance to vote until 10:00 every Monday morning, the results show will be broadcast live on Monday evenings.
