Tobie Cronjé

Tobie Cronjé was born in 1948 in Germiston. He was fortunate to craft an illustrious career that has spanned 50 years.

After matric, he worked in an office and taught music for two years. Amongst his piano students were seven learners from Kathlehong. He decided to further his own studies at UP but switched to drama at the last moment. His mentors, among others, were Prof Anna Neetling-Pohl, Neels Hansen and Hannes Horne.

He joined the Performing Arts Council of the Transvaal (Pact) in 1972 and his first professional performance was as the pianist in The Fantastics. He has been in over a hundred stage plays. The biggest challenge for him was in the Brickhill/Burke production of a Broadway hit, I Love My Wife in 1979 when he had to learn to sing and dance and speak with an American accent. He then started a bond with Janice Honeyman, playing the “Dame” or the “Baddie” with great success, in her famous pantomimes for many years.
