There’s been tension among KU theatre groups after a show dubbed the ‘INVASION’ was cancelled due to ‘unclear’ circumstances. The show was to go down at the University’s magnificent amphitheatre on the 24th starting 6 pm going late into the night.
The hilarious Karis of Churchill show and recently a Q fm radio host,Mejja and Madtrax were expected to bring down the roof of amphitheatre with comedy and musical hits.
However it seems lady luck was not on the side of the artistes and organizers as the show was abruptly called off,a case of the party ending before it even started.
It is romoured that a Kenyatta University Travelling Theatre(KUTT) artiste reported to the security that the show was political and a ground to extort money from Comrades prompting the cancellation of the show.The said artiste is also vying for KUSA’s top seat- the presidency.
This did not go well with most thespians as they had banked on the show to showcase their talent.They felt wasted as some of the local comedians had rehearsed their lines ready to crack the ribs of entertainment- hungry comrades. The situation has led to sort of a beef between the three dominant groups Triple E,Talent house productions (THP) and KUTT with the former group being branded as a ‘judas’ and killer of budding talent.
Well let’s see how far the beef goes.Come on thespians, forge ahead.Was this show a do or die situation?
