What’s on at Artscape?
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 …
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:
