Jonathan Roxmouth begins his tour of KZN at the Schlesinger Theatre at Michaelhouse, before spending a month in Durban appearing at the Rhumbelow Theatre with his new show, Stage By Stage. Roxmouth is the king of musical theatre in South Africa at the moment, and this new show celebrates the genre with his favourite pick of numbers from well-known musicals.

KZN - and especially Durban - has held a special place in Jonathan’s heart since his days with Northcliff High School’s annual musical at the Playhouse. Here he performed in Guys & Dolls, Oklahoma!, The Mikado, Me and My Girl and The Pirates of Penzance.

In Stage by Stage, he sings songs from shows he has done, songs from shows he is doing and songs from shows he hasn’t done yet. In between, there are backstage stories and anecdotes that will have the audience chuckling. Highlights include Bring Him Home (Les Misérables), Music of the Night (The Phantom of the Opera), If I Loved You (Carousel) and This is the Moment (Jekyll and Hyde), to name a few.

Stage By Stage has one performance in the Schlesinger Theatre at Michaelhouse on June 6 at 19h30. Tickets R120. Booking is essential through Computicket or email Mrs Angela Jonsson for information at or call 033 234 1314 (weekdays between 08h00 and 13h00)
