New live theatre at Ballito venue to stage two shows running concurrently on alternate nights.

A new live theatre comes to the Dolphin Coast in this month of December with The Pumpkin Theatre Club at La Montagne staging two shows devised and directed by Stuart Mey. They will run concurrently on alternate nights.

Latin Heat - starring Derrick Anderson, Kerry-Lee McKibbin and Natasha Lynn - celebrates the infectious, passionate rhythm of Latin Music, music that echoes the heartbeat and the rhythms of the soul. Many chart-topping Latino artists have come to the fore in recent years and this performance pays tribute to the works of Gloria Estefan, Jennifer Lopez, Shakira and Enrique Iglesias.

Hot Summer Night sizzles with a celebration of summer hits by the Queen, Roxette, Lily Allen, Mango Groove and Johnny Clegg. The production represents a whirlwind, worldwide tour of the hottest party spots from the USA to Europe and finally South Africa itself.

The Pumpkin Theatre Club will provide locals and holiday makers alike with the opportunity to enjoy supper theatre right on their doorstep. The Dolphin Coast is developing rapidly and a demand for evening entertainment is becoming evident. The response amongst both visitors and locals to the impending opening night has been overwhelmingly positive. The dinner menu is buffet style and provides a selection of seafood delicacies, tasty curries and traditional carvery amongst other delights.

Tickets R250 pp include dinner and the show available only on 032 946 2121. The Pumpkin Theatre Club is situated at 100 Compensation Beach Road, Ballito and is open Tuesday to Sunday, with dinner served at 18h30 and the show starting at 20h00.
