‘A Handful of Keys’ showing at Theatre on the Bay

A Handful of Keys

A Handful of Keys

Back by popular demand (and ending on February 12th) is the much loved and ever so popular ‘A Handful of Keys’ now showing at Theatre on the Bay in Camps Bay.

Directed by Ian von Memerty, Roelof Colyn and Jonathan Roxmouth and two grand pianos produce a scintillating performance of pianistic virtuosity and laugh a minute impersonation.  The show is one of constant surprise, intelligence and wit with great music that ranges from the beauty that Bach and Beethoven produced to the soul music of Ray Charles and Fats Waller. Elton John, Freddy Mercury and Liberace are not forgotten either – there is definitely something for everyone!

The performance has a great history; starring Ian von Memerty and Bryan Schimmel the show started way back in 1994, playing over 300 performances to over 100 000 people in the three years up to 1997 and won nine awards along the way.  In 2001 it opened again, still starring Ian von Memerty but joined this time by Roelof Colyn.  The show toured around the country before heading to London and the Big Brown Land that is Australia.  Success was reached yet again; another three years of performing 300 shows to 100 000 people! In 2005 the show toured again; still with Roelof Colyn at its helm and he was joined by Capetonian Jeremy Quickfall.  The pair toured to 50 000 people and notched up the shows 750th performance. In 2008 a young Jonathan Roxmouth teamed up with Roelof Colyn and the two have created a fantastic partnership; one that has the critics smiling and the audiences pouring through the door.

Tickets & Bookings:
Show times are Tuesday to Friday 8pm and Saturday at 5pm and 8pm.  Prices range from R95 per person to R145 per person. There is also a dinner and theatre package for R265 per person or alternatively one can reserve a table at the theatres restaurant and order off the menu on the night of the show.
