(Erin Fourie)

Remember the big hair, big shoulders, big music, big egos? The Just Theatre group in Pietermaritzburg brings you their 20th annual Dive show, this time celebrating the 80s!

The I Heart the 80s cast of eight, all of whom have made their mark on the local music scene, as well as been involved in many previous shows , consists of Ryan Calder, Erin Fourie, Sandra Styles, Helen Vermaak, Daniel Rossouw, Tammy Calder, Katherine McClelland and Brandon Bosch.

These fabulous musicians and singers look back at the songs and singers that made the 1980’s: the anthems, the power ballads, the boy bands and girl bands, the serious musicians, the movies and the musicals.

Who will ever forget icons such as Bryan Adams, Police, Bruce Springsteen, Tina Turner, The Eurythmics, Alannah Myles, Belinda Carlisle, Alison Moyet, Stevie Wonder, Whitney Houston, George Michael and so many more?

The show is directed by Peter Mitchell and jam packed with numbers that rocked the decade, some iconic, some surprising. For a night of toe-tapping, thigh-slapping, singalong tunes, this is going to be a highlight.

Once again, whose dislike of 80’s music makes this an ordeal for him, the show is just the thing for all you 60’s and 70’s babies!

I Heart the 80s runs in the Hexagon Theatre on the UKZN Pietermaritzburg campus from December 7 to 15 at 19h00 for 19h30.
