What’s on at Artscape?

Send to Kindle

Cape Town’s Artscape Theatre has a wide variety of entertainment on offer from now until early December, including “Interrupting Henry”, “Annie” and a production by the Cape Dance Company.  Read on for snippets of some of the productions on at Artscape …

Interrupting Henry

Interrupting Henry

Interrupting Henry
This is the second play in the 6th Artscape Spring Drama Season and is a bitter-sweet dark comedy set in a model C high school in present day Cape Town.  The new drama teacher hopes to produce an alternative version of The Diary of Anne Frank as the annual school play but his determination to do things differently puts him on a collision course with his colleagues especially because he’s decided that a Grade Eleven boy should play Anne Frank!  This play will be performed in the Arena on the following days:

Previews on 4th and 5th November at 7.30pm (these shows are R50 each)
Family Nights on 9th & 16th November at 7.30pm (these shows are R50 each)
Normal shows on 6th to 20th November at 8.15pm ((these shows are R80 each)

The award winning musical Annie is based upon the Harold Gray comic strip, Little Orphan Annie and is everyone’s childhood favourite.  Who doesn’t know at least some of the words to ‘Tomorrow’ and ‘It’s a Hard-Knock Life’?!

The musical tells the story of Annie, an eleven year old orphan who was abandoned by her parents as a small baby.  She escapes the clutches of Miss Hannigan and charms her way into the residence (and heart) of Oliver Warbucks who offers to assist her in finding her parents.  Annie is on at the Opera House at the following times:

Preview on 13 November 2010 at 2.30pm.  Tickets are range from R115 to R185.
Shows from 13 November to 5 December 2010 at 7.30pm and 28 November to 5 December at 6pm range from R155 to R230.
Saturday and Sunday matinees at 2.30pm range from R130 to R205

Cape Dance Company

Cape Dance Company
Fresh from their sell-out performances at the Edinburgh Festival, the Cape Dance Company returns to Cape Town to celebrate its 15th anniversary.  Their latest presentation features work by Christopher Huggins and Carlos dos Santos (both USA), Esther Nasser, Alfred Hinkel and Debbie Turner.  This is a production that is a perfect tribute to a now internationally sought-after dance company.  Watch them in the Theatre.  Shows are:

24th November at 8.15pm (tickets R150)
25th November to 4th December 2010 at 20:15pm and 28th November at 3pm (tickets are either R100 or R120)

    Could you urgently send me some of your brochures, to let my guest in the hotel know what is on at Artscape. Also if you could try and let us have a poster, on every new event, that would be great!!! My office is on the ground floor of the Ritz Hotel in Seapoint. Tel:021-4394001
