Popular show at Heritage Theatre in Hillcrest extended to May 24.

Due to popular demand, and for the first time in the history of The Heritage Theatre, Woodstock Remembered has been extended by a further week to May 24 (Comrades Day) with the final performance being a 19h30 show (Dinner from 18h00.)

It turned out to be the biggest rock concert the world had ever seen, and this year Woodstock celebrates its 40th anniversary of “Three Days of Peace and Music”. Woodstock Remembered celebrates the era of “flower power” and recalls Vietnam, JFK, civil rights and, most of all, the quest for peace, love and freedom.

The show features music from artists who performed at the festival such as Bob Dylan, Credence Clearwater Revival, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Joan Baez, Santana, Ten Years After and The Who, as well as music from the era including hits by Simon and Garfunkel, The Byrds, John Lennon and The Mamas and The Papas.

It stars Marion Loudon and John Didlick (both seen last at the Heritage in the award winning, The King and Queen) and the resident Heritage band: Dawn Selby, Barry Thomson, Mali Sewell and Lloyd de Gier.

The Heritage Theatre is also celebrating its FourthBirthday! As a special Birthday promotion, guests who attend Thursday night shows in 60’s attire (i.e. hippie & flower power) stand the chance of winning a R1,000 Heritage Theatre voucher.

Tickets R190 Wednesday to Saturday (R165 Tuesday dinner and Sunday lunch. Bookings on 031 765 4197 or online at
