Doris Simeon happy about her latest feature says she is 100% throwing herself into the project to ensure theatre is moved to the next level.

The minutes the whole thing was pitched to me I fell in love with it and I stopped to think and it didn’t take long before I understood why they birth the idea; it was simple.

Music, TV, Radio and Social media seems to be getting the buzz these days and all these emanated from stage performances and I am flushed faced right just trying to phantom the fact that I am helping to move theatre to the next level; I don’t think recognition gets any bigger than that. I am definitely throwing my weight behind the movement 100%

– she boasted.

CEO & Co-Founder of TAF, Alayande Stephen T. speaking about the new lineup of ambassadors says they are personalities with notable contributions to the entertainment industry.

The lineup of the Ambassadors shows a repertoire of seasoned entertainment practitioners whose field range from theatre to screen, music and even comedy. They are not just lovers of stage production but they are passionate about the African culture and story.

Interestingly, they are also a mixture of experienced and young at heart individuals who are determined to pass the unwavering torch of theatre/stage production to the next generation. Some of them have even made laudable contributions into ensuring that theatre performance is constantly on the rise in Africa, hence, the Ambassadors would be advocating extensively on the TAF 2016/17 theme styled “PEACE IN AFRICA.
