Evita showing at Theatre on the Bay

Theatre on The Bay

Evita is currently showing at Theatre on the Bay in Camps Bay … it’s so good and there has been such an overwhelming response for tickets that the theatre has added a few extra dates to the show times.  So if you thought you’d missed out before get into the Cape Town Festive Season spirit and snap up a ticket!

The production follows the rise of a young and ambitious Eva; telling the story of the enormous wealth and power she gained and how she became the much loved Evita …

Evita has been a worldwide phenomenon; beginning with the recording of the well known song ‘Don’t Cry for Me Argentina’ in 1976.  After the release of the song and with the stage production of her life opening in London in June 1978, Evita premiered on Broadway in September 1979.  Productions had already run in Los Angeles and San Francisco and the Broadway production beat records after running for over 1,500 performances.  The musical won a total of seven Tony Awards and in 1981 received a Grammy Award.

The film version (with Madonna in the leading role) of the stage production hit cinemas all around the world in 1996 and London’s Adelphi Theatre saw a revival of the show in 1996.

The Cape Town show is set to dazzle too with the main cast made up of Angela Kilian as Eva, Kenneth Meyer plays Che, Peron is portrayed by James Borthwick, Anton Luitingh is Magaldi and the Mistress is played by Lynn Thompson.

I am a big fan of Theatre on the Bay – I like the size of the theatre; big enough to have a great atmosphere but small enough that you always have a good view of the stage.

Show Dates:
Evita ends on January 8th with show times as follows:  Monday to Friday at 8pm, Saturday at 5pm and 8.30pm.
There are no performances scheduled for December 16th and 25th or New Years Day (January 1st).

Theatre on the Bay, 1 Link Street, Camps Bay, Cape Town.

About 

After living in London and travelling the world for many years and more recently living in the Mother City, I now reside on a tranquil sugar cane farm in Kearsney; an area steeped in the history of South Africa’s sugar industry. During the summer months I get involved with the community by assisting the local primary school with swimming lessons at our country club. Some of my favourite things are reading or picking freshly grown vegetables and Iceland poppies in our garden. Milly, my boxer loves her walks to the river that runs through our farm and sometimes, Sandy the cat I hand reared, joins us for a stroll!
