Fresh from their successful appearance at The Witness Hilton Arts Festival, Anthony Stonier and Lisa Bobbert perform back on homeground in a magical music and comedy mixture, simply titled Because We Can!

Ten years ago, Lisa Bobbert and Anthony Stonier, compiled a revue called Brutal Tunes.  Directed by Caroline Smart, it opened in the now-defunct Royal Hotel Backstage Supper Theatre. Ten years later, they are still asked to perform this show! It has won numerous theatre awards over the years and has delighted thousands of people. Bobbert and Stonier felt the time had come for a follow-up show. Not a sequel but a music revue encompassing material from some shows they have done, some they wish they had done, some they wish they hadn’t done and some they are still determined to do!

Because We Can! runs over two weekends from September 28 to October 7. Friday and Saturday performances at 20h00 with Sunday shows at 18h30. The venue opens 90 minutes before show for picnic dinner/lunch.

Tickets R100 (less 25% pensioners and tables of eight or more for the first weekend only).

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.

Booking is through Computicket or contact Roland on 031 205 7602 (h) or 082 499 8636, email or visit
