The National Acting Competition for high school learners has been organised by Bellville High School since 2002 for high school learners around South Africa. This competition involves learners from grade 8 to grade 12 and the focus is placed on individual acting ability by perfoming poems, monologues etc. After nationwide elimination rounds, 60 competitors are invited to take part in the final 4 rounds which will be held at Artscape. One of the rounds will provide an opportunity for leaners to visit film and radio studios as part of the competition. The top eight performers will be invited to perfom in the Gala Evening which will be held on the 21 May 2022 in Opera House at Artscape.
