Cabaret at Arts Theatre

IT’S A LOVE THING: Kerry Hiles performs the dress rehersal of Roll the Dice, last year’s annual Arts Theatre Valentine’s production

The Change the Channel Valentine’s Day cabaret will take place at the Arts Theatre from February 12 to 23 and is sure to wow audiences in attendance.

Celebrating its it’s 15th year of existence, the cabaret has invited organisations to take part in a fundraising drive for themselves, as well for the theatre.

Cabaret organiser Vicky Luff said in this way this is how the theatre was able to support the community and also attract bring in new people to it.

“The theatre sells tickets each night to a different organisation for a fee, and that is our guaranteed amount for the theatre. Each charity then is able to sell up to 130 tickets. It’s a win for both of us,” Luff said.

The audience can expect a fun show produced by Luff and Jacques du Plessis, featuring a live band with Brett Clur on drums, while du Plessis and Armand Steenkamp will be on the piano. The talented cast members include Jon Buitendag, Kay Mosiane and dancers, such as Emma van der Zee and Kelly Bowman.

Eyabantwana Trust, Arcadia Rotary, Downs Syndrome Association, Stirling Primary hockey and Hope Schools are just some of the organisations that will benefit from the evening.

“Doors open to the audience at 7pm and please bring your own picnic basket and cooler box. Most tickets are selling at R120,” Luff said.

Space is still available for February 12 and 13 for those organisations who would like to take part. For more information, contact Vicky on 073-941-6893 or e-mail
