SABC2’s new reality programmes SHOWVILLE makes dreams a reality by bringing the glamour and glitz of television to the small, remote and often overlooked dorpies across South Africa.
The series that starts on Saturday 6 February 2016 at 19:30 offers ordinary citizens their 15 minutes of fame as they showcase their talents in front of the camera. Hosted by Rob Van Vuuren and Bontle Modiselle the series travels to small towns in South Africa for a three day audition in that town.
On Day One, Rob and Bontle host open auditions. Performers of all types are welcome to strut their stuff and share their stories. At the end of the day, our hosts select the four acts they feel will put on the best show for the town. These are The Finalists.
Day Two - Coaches begin their mentorship of each finalist in preparation for the “big show” in between juggling their real jobs, their families and their nerves.
Day Three brings the final competition, presented at a well-known town venue in front of a live, local audience. Now it's all up to the performers' fellow citizenry - including friends, family, co-workers and neighbours – to choose the winning performer. The winner receives R10 000 and a glittering trophy signifying that they are the star of their town.
