Lunchbox Theatre has a wonderful troupe of actors who educating children on how to live an honourable life through live theatre shows.
What are the guiding principles that Lunchbox Theatre’s actors live by? Where do these values fit into teaching youth of South Africa about environmental and social best practices? No matter what your beliefs, can you resonate with these universal messages which are inherent in all our shows?
Just like South African government schools do not embrace any religious ethos to the exclusion of others, Lunchbox Theatre prefers to live through faith and values rather than practicing or preaching any specific religion. The aim is to simply make the world a better place.
When the Lunchbox Theatre team rehearse they often do so at Nomzama Maga’s local church hall. This gives you a clue about this endearing actress. No matter what your religion there are key Great Principles Shared by All Religions and embodied in our life changing shows, with thanks to Jeffrey Moses.

Honour Thy Father and Mother … and one way to do this is if Fathers and Mothers are good examples and they honour themselves, their children and each other as well.

Nomzamo’s name means ‘mother of all endeavours!! There’s nothing she won’t try. There is no giving up. Nothing is impossible!!!
This is good for Lunchbox Theatre as she prays for all children to be well taken care of, safe and happy. That is what the messages imparted through the Lunchbox Theatre shows are all about. Lunchbox Theatre’s Values are to Serve People, Educate & Develop Children, Pursue Excellence and to Grow through Support. And the only way to achieve this is to have enough money coming in to stage as many shows as possible. This is tricky for a Non-Profit Organisation however after 8 years, Lunchbox Theatre is becoming stronger and stronger and with more support the Values will be accomplished.
