  • 9 July and the beginning of August, we will deliver written and oral submissions to support the Bills that protect the earning rights of actors. If we fail, we will never see meaningful industry transformation in our lifetime. Included will be our petition of OVER 2000 signatures. Make sure it includes YOURS!

In accordance with a decision taken by UASA at their National Executive Committee meeting, UASA’s Membership Subscriptions have been increased. For current debit order members, UASA will do the necessary in terms of the monthly debit order and relevant change in the subscription rate. We thank you for your continued support of SAGA.

Why join SAGA?

What will I get out of joining SAGA?

As actors, we are all aware of the dangers and limitations of acting as a profession. South African actors have never had meaningful representation to fight injustices that threaten their livelihood. History and sometimes bitter experience have taught us that a lone voice is not going to suddenly infuse the entertainment industry with justice, fairness and integrity.

In most cases, individual actors do not have the financial resources to take contractual disputes to court. The only way to create an improved working environment in the entertainment industry is to stand together and act with a common purpose.

SAGA’s coalition agreement with UASA guarantees every member exclusive access to a legal support system, which was specifically developed to address the unique challenges of the acting profession. By joining SAGA, you become part of a force that aims to right current wrongs and influence future legislation to create fair and equitable working conditions.

0861 00 8272 is the dedicated emergency number for all UASA members.
It provides instant access to medical emergency evacuation and roadside assistance.

You also have access to study grants and a discount on Marlicht holiday accommodation in Margate.

As an actor, you are at the heart of the performance industry – an industry which has been marginalized for decades. SAGA is a vehicle to remedy this. It is an organization which is apolitical, non-racial and democratic and represents your interests. SAGA gives you a legal voice – join and use your voice!
