A leading company in the Nigerian market of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, Grand Oak Limited, recently showered gift items worth thousands of Naira on members of the National Association of Nigerian Theatre Arts Practitioners (NANTAP) at the celebration of the World Theatre Day 2013.
The event, held at the National Arts Theatre Lagos, witnessed a huge turnout of the theatre practitioners who were presented with the company’s products and other branded gift items.
Speaking at the event, Manager, Promotions of Grand Oak Limited, Mrs. Catherine Akeju, said the decision to join NANTAP in celebrating the World Theatre Day was not unconnected with the importance the brand attaches to tradition and culture.
In her words: “Our brand is a conveyor of everlasting blessing; hence our involvement in celebrating with the theatre practitioners is an added value to the brand. Seaman’s Schnapps as the number one original prayer drink in the country, has long stood for culture and tradition.
“This is a platform to associate and bond with key target audience, it is about associating with the life-styles of the consumers, and for Seaman’s Schnapps we want to celebrate with our consumers”.
In her address, the chairman of NANTAP, Lagos State Chapter, Ms. Faith Eboigbe, expressed gratitude to Grand Oak Limited for its support towards the successful hosting of this year’s world theatre day.
She stated that: “As NANTAP joined the rest of the world to celebrate World Theatre Day, there is need to appreciate our sponsor Grand Oak Limited for recognising the importance of culture and tradition as part of our business.
“As practitioners, we recognise the contribution of culture to the development of nations and the association has continuously joined the international theatre body to mark the celebration of world theatre day,” she added.
