“Intwasa will hold three auditions this year to look for the finalist who will then compete during the festival in September, the auditions will be held at the Bulawayo Theatre, Amakhosi Cultural Centre and Eziko Theatre Laboratory.
“I call upon all young artistes to come and register for free as we seek to continue our efforts to promote young and emerging artistes and talents from different communities in Bulawayo,” Baya added.
