Pamela is a South African born performing artist, She was born and raised in the North West, in the small town of Orkney. During pre-school, she thrived and enjoyed doing all the little shows the school had, and that is when her passion grew and she never looked back. She began her schooling career at Western Reefs Primary School where she was very culturally and academically active. She played netball, baseball, joined the choir, started a dancing squad (with the help of her best friend and teachers) called the Pom-Pom girls, who performed at the Matlosana Mayor’s Inauguration and all schooling events. She even performed in Eisteddfod from grade 1 up to grade 7, doing poetry and choir. During high school, she focused on academics and only sang in her church band’s youth group. She began her Musical Theatre career at Tshwane University of Technology in 2012 and decided to major in acting at Oakfields College, completing a two-year certificate in Drama Studies. At TUT she worked with Rosti Pashkevich, Sydney Agnew, Anatoly Pabiennko, and many others. While she studied at Oakfields, she worked with Tristan McConnell, Pieter Human, Chanel van Wyk, Weslee Swain Lauder and Jesse Christelis, to name a few. Her musicals and plays include: Legally Blonde: The Musical, The Play That Goes Wrong (which were both South African firsts) and did a few workshop projects such as LOST, which was a show that addressed the Xenophobia issues of 2015 and was performed at the Krekvars Arts Festival at the University of Pretoria. This was her first purely physical theatre show where she played lead. She also did an applied theatre show that toured high schools in and around Pretoria, which was very successful and educated teens about drugs in an artistic and relatable way. She is very excited to be challenged and to break boundaries with her art and hopes to inspire others to let their guards down and run with the wind.
