Aadam on the mic By Staff Reporter - August 11, 2022 Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter The annual Shakespeare Schools Festival South Africa (SSFSA) is at the Baxter Theatre until Saturday August 20. Aadam Gaidien, 22, pictured, from Muizenberg, has a long association with the SSFSA. From 2015 to 2018 when he matriculated, he was part of the SSFSA as a performer participating with his school, Vista Nova High. SSFSA founder Ksenyina Filinova-Bruton invited him to be an MC for the festival in 2019 and he has done the job each year thereafter. “This festival has definitely made a huge impact on my life,” he says, “helping me grow into the person I am today. I’ll always be thankful to the festival for all the opportunities it has given me.” Aadam is currently working at becoming a surf board shaper. Tickets for the SSFSA cost from R85 through Webtickets.
