The new information explosion age and its associated technological breakthrough in the areas of new media has come to offer solutions to the myriads of problem and the challenges involved in stage performance for the practitioners and audience in the past. This paper therefore set out to examine the old practices, its challenges, the new media and the opportunities it presents. It will also examine the extent to which the new media have been able to move the African performance forward in the new millennium.
