If you are in the Eshowe area, keep October 19 and 20 free for The Great British Music Hall Show, which is being staged by the Invisible Theatre Company in aid of Vukani Museum.

It’s been a long, long time since Eshowe had the pleasure of seeing the members of the old Eshowe Dramatic Society on the stage but there’s a treat in store. A group of them have re-constituted themselves as the Invisible Theatre Company and have created this evening of raucous laughter in the style of the naughty entertainments of the late 19th century.

This cheeky romp features the talents of well-known Zululand actors and singers in the music and melodramas of the times. Patrons will be seated at tables where they can enjoy their drinks (cash bar) and bar snacks, and even bring their own suppers, while hurrahing, heckling, booing the villains and sighing over a pretty ankle.

This light-hearted look at the music and melodrama of 100 years ago will re-create a boisterous era, when a glimpse of ankle was shocking, and men took their mistresses to the music halls!

The Great British Music Hall Show has performances on October 19 and 20 at 19h30 at the Eshowe High School. Tickets R60 booked through Elsabe on 082 779 6756. Book your seat, book a whole table and bring your own food if you wish. A cash bar is available.
