Sibaya Casino and Entertainment Kingdom and renowned Gauteng company, Rockwood Theatre have confirmed an exciting partnership that will see more music shows, revues and stage productions coming to Durban.

Rockwood, who have had huge success in Pretoria, will find a home at a newly-renovated 300-seater, supper theatre venue at Sibaya. The venue previously housed Krakatoa Night Club.

Rockwood launches with a bold and hugely memorable show, Knowing Me Knowing You, a vibrant showcase of hits by Abba, Fleetwood Mac, The Beatles, Queen, Chicago, Roxette, Robbie Williams, Jason Mraz and home-grown heroes Mango Groove. The show, an exhilarating tribute to the power partnership of rock, pop and folk, runs from November 17 2017 to January 28 2018.

Armed with a wealth of experience, Rockwood owners Tom and Ann Muller have created a relaxed and informal setting, with highly-anticipated shows directed by multi-talented Durbanite, Andrew Webster, who has 25 years of experience in entertainment.

“After more than 12 years, the curtain comes down on Krakatoa Night Club at Sibaya to make way for our new, upscale theatre venue that will stage vibrant and quality shows to bolster the Durban theatre scene. We are delighted with the transformation of the venue, where our guests can now enjoy a diversity of quality shows in a sophisticated and intimate setting. It is a tremendously exciting development,” says Melville Vogel, General Manager at Sibaya Casino.

Rockwood Theatre is also ideal for year-end functions, group bookings and fundraising initiatives or just a fun night with family and friends. The venue offers a delicious menu but patrons are welcome to bring in meals, bought from within the Sibaya Complex. The Theatre also has a fully-stocked bar.

Doors will open a 90 minutes before each show to give the audience time to relax, unwind and enjoy the intimacy and warmth of the venue, while having a cozy meal. The theatre also offers an array of exciting deals, including buy-1-get-1-free on Thursday nights @ R200; Saturday and Friday nights @ R165 and Sundays with adults @ R130, kids U12 free and pensioners receiving a massive 50% discount!

Knowing Me Knowing You runs from November 17 2017 to January 28 2018. For more information and reservations contact 031 161 0000 or visit or follow on Facebook
