WIN TICKETS TO SINDER-FELLA AN ADULT PANTO

Published

on

Durbanite and Suncoast are giving away 3 Double Tickets for the show on the 15th November 2014! Simply tell us below why you want to watch the show and  you could be the winner! Winners will be randomly chosen on Friday the 14th November.

The Durban tradition of adult panto continues to flourish. 2014 sees Suncoast host the event for the 4th time and nobody is going to be disappointed with the brand new twist in the tale of a well-loved story.  The time has come for a return to double entendre and innuendo (the Italian for suppository); to the way the adult panto was in times gone by.

It is an accepted fact that Cinderella is the world’s most favourite pantomime. There have been several incarnations of the adult version, Sinderella. But don’t panic …..there is a new version, filled with clever quips to keep you on the edge of your seat …as well as just a few below the belt jokes.

Harking back to the original format of clever, rather than in your face, your favourite festive season entertainers have come up with a new plot.

Gone is Cinderella – and Sinderella – as well as Prince Charming and the Fairy Godmother. Enter Sinder-Fella, Princess Charming and the Fairy Godfather.

The team is back with some new additions: Anthony Stonier (whose legs are a World Heritage site) and Clinton Small (last year’s surfer dude) play the Ugly Sisters; Thomie Holtzhausen (seen in a great variety of roles in past pantos) is the Fairy Godfather; and the gorgeous Katy Moore (last year’s Juliet) as Princess Pandora Hullett of Ballito. Joining them for the first time are RowinMunsamy as the Princess’ loyal supporter, Button, and Mpilo “Straw” Nzimanade as Sinder-Fella.

And …the whole story takes place right here in Durbs. Local is totally lekka!!!

    Gosh, last time I went to the Adult Pantomime at Suncoast was about 4 years ago, and what a laugh it was. We watched Alice in Wonderland, what a suberb cast and feature. I am dying to take my mom who has never seen an adult pantomime, let alone one of the Fabulous Suncoast Casino’s. Excited to see this one!!

WIN: Sundowners at Chambers Club and the KZNPO Symphony Season Concert

Published

on

As a stylish leap year treat, Urban Lime and the KZN Philharmonic Orchestra are offering an elegant Thursday evening out for one lucky couple: after-work sundowner cocktails and snacks at Chambers Club and two tickets to the final KZNPO Symphony Season concert in Durban City Hall, on Thursday 5 March at 7.30pm.

To enter – answer the below TWO questions in the comment section of our Facebook post:

  1. Who’s giant 600sqm. portrait hangs alongside the Durban Club Chambers building (the former Netherlands Bank building) in Anton Lembede St?
  2. Where are the KZNPO Summer Season Symphony concerts being performed?
Std. T&C’s apply

Chambers Club, South Africa’s newest members’ club, is housed in Durban Club Chambers building (the former Netherlands Bank head office). It is a members’ club for South Africa and Africa’s business and professional community located in the iconic Professional Quarter in the heart of the city, which is open to the public on evenings and weekends.

The beautiful building was designed by famed architect Norman Eaton in central Durban which has been transformed into a professional quarter for the legal fraternity, business community, entrepreneurs and creatives as part of an extensive city-wide project by the visionary team from Urban Lime.

One of the special features of the Chambers Club is a beautiful rooftop garden which overlooks the city – with commissioned sculptures, a water feature, quinine trees, indigenous grasses and aloes. This carefully created space is an eventual realisation of what Norman Eaton originally wished for – a tranquil roof top garden which is ideal for an after-work alfresco sundowner to meet colleagues and friends before heading home.

The Club offers facilities geared for legal practioners and businesspeople: meeting rooms, interview rooms, board rooms, restaurant, bar, lounge, parking facilities and cloakroom. It is perfect for professionals and those looking for an elegant, safe quiet place to meet, work and dine in the middle of town.

Win an elegant evening out: After-work sundowner cocktails and snacks at Chambers Club and a KZNPO symphony season concert in Durban City Hall

The KZN Philharmonic perform two Beethoven favourites, the Leonore Overture No 1 and the Triple Concerto, played by pianist, Malcolm Nay, violinist Tai Murray and KZNPO’s very own cellist Aristide du Plessis. The evening closes with a performance of Bizet’s delightful Symphony in C – all under the baton of Netherlands born conductor Arjan Tien who makes a popular return to round off the season on 5 March.

Pieter Dirk Uys and Evita Bezuidenhout: #HeTwo

Published

on

The Hexagon, Pietermaritzburg: 14 – 16 November

Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre, Durban: 18 – 24 November

 

“It’s a class act … the evergreen Uys always manages to inject something fresh and relevant into his work. A great show and a wonderful tribute to one gutsy lady created by one of South Africa’s true sons of the soil.” Peter Feldman ARTSLINK 2.8.2019

 “That both PDU and Tannie Evita will have you giggling at #HeTwo while banishing the troubles of the outside world is a no brainer.” Diane de Beer DEBEER NECESSITIES 31.7.2019

 “Uys dons false eyelashes and presidents listen.” L.A. TIMES

 

“You better watch out, you better not lie, you better not pout, I am telling you why- #HeTwo is coming to town!” Pieter-Dirk Uys and Evita “face off” on stage together for the first time ever in South African history, #HeTwo comes to The Hexagon Theatre from 14 – 16 November and then heads to the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre from 18 – 24 November.

WIN WIN WIN

Visit our Facebook page to enter to win 1 set of 5 double tickets!

Tickets valid for Tuesday 19th November @ the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre ONLY!

Show starts @ 19h30 sharp! Std. T&C’s apply.

In 1981 a woman appeared out of the dressing room of the Market Theatre, stepped onto the stage and smiled. Virtually before she even gave her name, she was a legend. Mrs Evita Bezuidenhout was presented to the audience, the nation and the world. She is still going stronger than ever. No longer a recognised Nationalist as she was during those years of apartheid rule, she is now a member of the African National Congress, secure in her Luthuli House kitchen where she cooks for reconciliation. For nearly forty years she has had to tolerate the impersonation of her by a local actor. She tried to sue him for libel; she swore never to allow him into her life and yet, now in the 25th year of her democracy, she will be on the stage with Pieter-Dirk Uys at the same time.

The question to PDU was always: why this female character of Evita? There are many answers. When he started impersonating her in 1978, it was illegal to have an opinion about anything political, so maybe an Afrikaans woman with an NP husband could spill the beans. The fact that she was portrayed by a man dressed as a woman when cross-dressing was also illegal, could force the edge of the envelope. Or maybe that she was there for only one reason: to eventually make Nelson Mandela laugh. And she did. They met and he laughed. She also embraced Archbishop Desmond Tutu who also laughed. She posed with countless legends and South Africans, black and white, laughed – with relief.

Evita Bezuidenhout will always be ten years older than Pieter-Dirk Uys. He seems to be catching up. His Darling venue, Evita se Perron, has been going for 23 years, established as a recognised international tourist destination and local satirical Stonehenge. Who would have thought that Tannie Evita would become a farce to be reckoned with, to be hailed and celebrated as the most famous white woman in South Africa? And now as a member of the ANC, sharing her weekly comments on YouTube and Daily Maverick about the state of her nation, where her Evita’s Free Speech, now past its 200th episode, has gathered supporters from all the corners of the globe? Her 140,000 Twitter followers are not just, as she thinks, in the same prison outside Rustenburg.

Now in 2019, for the first time, she and her ageing impersonator will confront each other face to face.

There can only be one winner.

#HeTwo will perform in Pietermaritzburg at the Hexagon from 14 to 16 November (Book at Webtickets) and in Durban at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre from 18 to 24 November (Book at Computicket).
