KBT Productions presents the Cape Town premiere of the acclaimed adaptation of Paul Gallico’s The Snow Goose.   It will be performed at Kalk Bay Theatre from 5 to 28 June at 8pm.


The Fugard Theatre's The Rocky Horror Show returns to Cape Town by massive, popular demand and Terence Bridgett joins the madness for the first 3 weeks only!


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.
