|The 2018 Splashy Fen Music Festival Was A Beautiful Success |
04 Apr 18
"As you reflect over the coming days, concentrate on engraving the memories of a special 4 days on a Southern Drakensberg farm called Splashy Fen. A festival where the exchange rate, politics, news, conflict & judgement are forgotten, but instead family, friends, happiness and consciousness are embraced. A festival that brought 7 000 South Africans from all walks of life together. Thank you Splashy Fen. You have fulfilled our souls & we hope we have managed to fulfil yours. Until 2019... STAY HUMAN. Stu & Fuzz"

'The Inconvenience of Wings' which won accolades at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, is a moving portrayal of one family's struggle with bipolar disorder.
|The Taming of the Shrew |
12 Feb 18
In Shakespearean times, it was thought unbecoming for women to be on stage, and so the entire cast was male. How ironic and refreshing it was, therefore, to see The Taming of the Shrew at the Maynardsville outdoor theatre with an all-female cast and creative team.

|Cinderella on Ice |
22 Jan 18
I was treated to superb ice-dance at Pieter Torien¬ís lavish Cinderella on Ice at the Artscape last night. Having seen Swan Lake on Ice in 2016 which had received two standing ovations, I was looking forward to the contemporary interpretation of this well-known fairy-tale.
|King Kong |
27 Dec 17
I avoided "King Kong" at the Fugard Theatre earlier this year due to my ill-informed, foreign assumption that it was a musical production of the American monster film. However, upon discovering my ignorance, I was delighted to find the iconic South African musical returning for another run.
|The Nutcracker |
21 Dec 17
Tchaikovsky's "The Nutcracker" is showing at the ARTSCAPE again, and despite having seen it there previously, I just had to return.
|Fame - The Musical |
18 Dec 17
To be honest, I'm not really a fan of musicals. So when invited to review a youth production of "Fame: The Musical" (directed by Yvonne Copley), I was less than enthusiastic. However, on a brisk Sunday afternoon yesterday, I found myself at the Masque Theatre in Muisenberg for the first time.
