Spectacular festive season production opens at The Playhouse on November 20. (also dance)

It’s all stops out for Unforgettable, the Playhouse Company’s spectacular festive season production opening in the Playhouse Opera on November 20. Standby to experience the wow factor of live theatre in large doses with this big-stage song-and-dance extravaganza.

Directed by Mark Hawkins with sets and costumes designed by Dicky Longhurst, the starry line-up of performers is headed by legendary South African stage star Sam Marais, with Gina Shmukler (Chess), Renee (High 5), Durban’s own Pume Zondi sharing the stage. Packed with musical show-stoppers, and featuring a crack team of leading South African dancers, a strong vocal ensemble, and live backing from the KwaZulu-Natal Philharmonic Orchestra in the pit and a live band onstage, Unforgettable promises a truly unmissable outing to the theatre, that will stay with audiences long after the curtain comes down on this theatrical winner.
