West Side Story heading to Jozi after Cape Town success!

2015-08-18 09:33

Cape Town - After receiving rave reviews in Cape Town the smash hit local production of West Side Story will now be moving to Jozi.

The show will be presented at the Mandela Theatre (Joburg Theatre) in August and September 2016 by popular demand.

West Side Story, which ends a staggeringly successful, sold-out run this week at the Artscape Opera House in Cape Town, is the Fugard Theatre’s first out of house production, five years on from the iconic theatre's official opening in 2010.

Eric Abraham and the Fugard Theatre, the creators and producers of other outstanding runaway hits like The Rocky Horror Show, Kat & the Kings, Orpheus in Africa and Cabaret, have created a phenomenal 100% South African production on an unprecedented grand-scale that has left audiences mesmerised night after night.

The production will run from 9 August to 18 September 2016 and early-bird tickets are now on sale through Computicket or 0861 915 8000.

The Fugard Theatre will be offering an incredible discount for the first 9 performances. Premium priced tickets (usually R450 per ticket) will cost only R350 each for the first 9 performances.

Thereafter all normal ticket prices and discounts will apply. Given how the Cape Town season sold out - advance booking is highly recommended.
