The East London Performing Arts Society (ELPAS) will put on their end-of-year show from November 27 to 30 at the Arts Theatre.
Titled The Vegas Show – A Tribute to the Legends, the show aims to transport audiences to the glamorous city of Las Vegas for a night of fun and excitement.
ELPAS founder Nasine van Rensburg-Boltt said the Vegas theme has been done by a lot of productions and has proven to be popular throughout the years.
“The original Vegas tribute show, Legends in Concert, that runs in Vegas itself, has been running for more than 35 years.
“That is how popular this theme is and it has stood the test of time,” Van Rensburg-Boltt said.
As the title suggests, the show is about the legendary entertainers who have graced the stage in Las Vegas over the years, such as Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley.
“We have combined the old worldly charm of the era of the crooners, such as Tom Jones and
the classic show girls, with the new era of Vegas entertainment with popular artists such as Lionel Ritchie.
“There are also legends such as Cher and the high energy, explosive choreography that goes with these artists,”Van Rensburg-Boltt said.
The show is directed and choreographed by Van Rensburg-Boltt and also aims to assist local charities.
“The show is also in support of two charities that we hold dear to our hearts, so all proceeds made from these shows will go to Pet Pals and Drought Relief,” Van Rensburg-Boltt said.
The Pet Pals show will take place on November 27 while the November 28 show will be in aid of Drought Relief.
Tickets for the Pet Pals show can be bought from 082-774-7077 and tickets for the Drought Relief show are available from Lee Gold.
Audience members are invited to bring along picnic baskets to enjoy while watching the show as there will be cabaret seating. Tickets cost R100 and the shows start at 7.30pm.
