(Cat Simoni)

Well-known performer Cat Simoni drinks a champagne toast to the fabulous Elton John piano songbook in Just Me & Elton!, a production presented by Rhumbelow Theatre.

Featuring numbers such as Rocket Man, Yellow Brick Road, Daniel, Pinball Wizard and Candle in the Wind to Sacrifice, Nikita and Circle of Life, the audience is warmly invited to come and Feel the Love Tonight!

As a singer/songwriting team, Elton John & Bernie Taupin, his life-partner and master-lyricist, share the Top of the Pops league with Lennon & McCartney and Simon & Garfunkel. With hit after No.1 hit they mined the golden seam of Pop music from the 60's through to the Millennium. Every song is a shining example of the craft of pop-songwriting; every song gets the pulses racing.

First seen in KZN at the 2016 Hilton Arts Festival, Just Me & Elton! is pure Elton & Bernie from first note to last lyric and a sumptuous treat for everyone who's ever fallen for the pop sounds of the simply divine Mr Elton John.

Just Me & Elton! is devised and directed by Paul Spence. It will have performances in Pietermaritzburg at the Allan Wilson Shellhole on June 18 at 14h00 and 18h30. This will be followed by a weekend run at the Rhumbelow Theatre in Umbilo with shows on June 23 and 24 at 20h00 and on June 25 at 14h00 and 18h30.

Venues open 90 minutes before show for picnic. Tickets R150 (R130 pensioners).

(Braais will be available at the Umbilo venue for those who wish to cook some meat). There is limited secure parking available and a cash bar (no alcohol may be brought on to the premises)
