DUT presents the musical Oliver this March

submitted by

DUT starts the year with a musical flurry – staging the iconic Lionel Bart evergreen, Oliver! based on the Charles Dickens classical novel, which comes to the DUT Courtyard Theatre from 22 – 28 March 2015.

The Chaeli Campaign presents a line up of great South African music and theatre at the Ability Festival from 4 to 7 March at the Masque Theatre in Muizenburg.

After a sold out "try out" season of David Kramer's Orpheus in Africa that has played to capacity houses since opening earlier this month, the hit musical will return to the Fugard in September for the 2015 summer season.

  • last night I was Stuck in the Middle. My name was pulled from a hat and I was the improviser chosen to be on stage the whole show while everyone else threw me into scenes, madly, randomly and with great gusto. This was one of our shows at our successful and fantastic improv fest, now […]
