One of South Africa’s renowned musical entertainers, award-winning stage performer and producer Alistair Izobell, is back for another season of his one-man show Kaapse Stoep Stories at the Baxter’s Golden Arrow Studio from 17 June to 5 July at 20h15 from Tuesday to Saturdays.

With so many shows at the fest, we are inundated with both amazing and not so amazing stuff.  I thought I would give you my 2 cents on which shows I recommend and of course let you know what is hot and happening at the Follow Spot Collective.

The global theatre phenomenon, War Horse will be making its South African première later this year, beginning with a season at The Teatro at Montecasino in Johannesburg in October before transferring to the Artscape Opera House in Cape Town in December.

  • Warning: Not to be read while eating. Having 4 (ish) animals of the non human, non toilet using kind in a small house means there needs to be a dealing-with-poo plan. Our dogs have gotten better now that they are grown, and mostly poo in the park, although they do occasionally poo in the courtyard […]

  • Just a quick post to announce the return of gorgeous Lynita Crofford in Violet Online, at the Kalk Bay Theatre from 27 Jan to 8 Feb. So many people were sad to have missed our last short run, but now’s your chance to catch this cheeky, funny, rude and irreverent look at what it’s like […]
