Part of SAGA's mission is to uphold the excellence and harness the passion of the performance industry. Whether you're interested in acting tips, casting guidelines and etiquette, advice on how to manage your finances or a guiding hand while reading your contract, we plan have something for everyone.

If you have useful advice or a perspective on acting and actors, why not tell us about it for consideration in our blog! Your insightful opinions will increase your profile in the industry. We will make sure you get all the credit.

The South African Guild of Actors is in the process of negotiating with various stakeholders on contractual matters, particularly those governing the further commercial exploitation of the work of performers in the broadcast media. And do you know what? We are being heard.
