I really can’t explain myself, but what I can say is that I’m so glad I finally managed to pay them a visit, because it is such a cute little theatre, it was most certainly love at first sight.
So what did I watch? Well I was there to see Bon Soir, a production they refer to as “Cirque Dance Comedy“. It sounded weird & wonderful, and therefore I knew it would be right up my alley.
Directed by Vanessa Harris, and featuring local talents Ash & Brad Searle, Nadine Theron, Ruby Burton and Lucy & Alex Tops, it’s a little touch of madness, blended with a good dose of wonderment and a whole lotta fun.
In short: It’s a must see.
In long – have a look at the official write up:
A stimulating compilation of speciality acts to titillate your senses; UV illusions, optical contortions, strength adagio, comedy sketches and more. Six multi-talented artists seamlessly boast one unbelievable performance after another. Strung together with comedic antics and flawless vocals, this slick and sexy show, has enjoyed sell-out runs and rave reviews. Featuring the famous Big Boys, Ash and Bradley Searle; the power couple that is Lucy and Alex Tops of Bar None fame; and the beautiful and sinuously acrobatic Nadine Theron and Ruby Burton of Another Day. Bon Soir parades some major eye candy and extraordinary skill. This is a festive feast of a show for the whole family that is not to be missed.
I really don’t want to give away too much more, because it’s one of those things you just have to experience for yourself. But I can at least give you a little peek at the stage setup:To get in on the action, take note of the following:
- Tickets? R155 each & are available online over here
- When? Running until 24 Jan (they’re just closing over Xmas & New Year’s). The show starts at 8:30pm, but I do suggest you get there early to enjoy a drink at the bar. You can also join them for dinner before hand – read more about that over here.
The Kalk Bay Theatre will definitely be seeing me again. This was one of the greatest intros, hand down.
