(Simthandile Mtolo)

A performance by Simthandile Mtolo at The Jazzy Rainbow on August 25, 2018, is part of the Concerts SA Venue Circuit which aims to foster a love and support for live music in South African communities, as well as anchor small and medium-sized venues in urban and rural Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal, and the Western Cape.

Mtolo holds over a decade of experience in the entertainment industry as a professional performer and live entertainer. She began her career in her 11th grade at Kingsway High School, where she landed her first role in the musical Oliver, directed by the late Themi Venturas and staged at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre in 2004.

She continued the following year with Fiddler on the Roof, and continued onto greater stages as she grew into a young adult. She made it “her thing” to land great support and leading roles in productions such as My Fair Lady (2009 - The Playhouse Company), Man Of La Mancha (2010- Grahamstown Arts Festival Main Stage), and more recently Mashu The Musical (2015 - The Playhouse Company).

Mtolo appears on August 25 at 19h00 at The Jazzy Rainbow, 93 Smiso Nkwanyana (ex-Goble) Road. Entrance R80, tickets at the door including a free drink. Bookings on 031 3038398 or email
