Raconteur extraordinaire to present a humour-filled evening at Rhumbelow Theatre.

Frank Graham played Russian spies, American politicians, Cornish sailors, Welsh miners, Free State farmers, Indian fruit vendors, Coloured fishermen, Australian reps, Chinese launderers and many, many others on Springbok Radio, particularly in comedy. His voice-box bristles with voices and accents which had, and have, people's minds happily drawing their own pictures. Remember Able Seaman Johnston? Percy Snodgrass? They're all there ...

Come and spend an evening with raconteur extraordinaire Frank Graham, now active in professional showbusiness for forty years as an award-winning actor, comedian and voice artist as he gently explores the foibles and funniness of the folk who people our world: the Irish, the Welsh, the Cornishmen, the Scots, Londoners, South Africans of all hues and persuasions - and the rest. Your funnybones will be tickled and you'll leave with your souls refreshed and exhilarated.

Shows take place on November 7 and 8 at 20h00 and on November 9 at 18h30. The venue opens 90 minutes before show for picnic dinner.

Tickets R70. Take along food picnic baskets and braais will be available. There is limited secure parking and booking is essential. A cash bar is available (no alcohol may be brought on to the premises). Rhumbelow Theatre is situated in Cunningham Avenue off Bartle Road.
