The winners of the 15th annual Naledi Theatre Awards were announced on the Mandela Stage at the Joburg Theatre on 20 May 2019 and AFDA Johannesburg is extremely proud to announce that our Live Performance lecturer Heidi Mollentze won the Best Supporting Actress award for her role as Rona in The Revlon Girl.

The Naledi Theatre Awards have been in existence for 15 years and is recognised as the Premier Awards Event on the Gauteng Theatre Calendar. Their mission is to recognize and reward excellence in the Performing Arts, to raise the profile of Live Theatre and to create awareness of the abundant talent alive and well on our South African stages. The Naledi Theatre Awards has honoured 62 Lifetime Achievers: veteran artistes, technicians and administrators who have dedicated their lives to South African Theatre while paying tribute to people in the arts who have taken their final bows during the year under review. The Naledi Theatre Awards covers all mainstream professional productions from the period 1 January to 1 December of the previous year and the Naledi Judges typically evaluate over 100 productions in 30 categories. The Naledi Panel of Judges consists of informed and regular theatregoers, academics and members of the media covering the arts in Johannesburg.
