I Heart the 80s is back at the Hexagon again after breaking Dive box office records in December!

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

The 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. All brilliantly accompanied by top notch guitarists Calder and Rossouw.

These popular 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 jam packed with numbers that rocked the decade, some iconic, some surprising. For a night of toe tapping, thigh slapping, singalong (not too loudly!) tunes, this is going to be a highlight.

Once again directed by Peter Mitchell, 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!

The show takes place at the Hexagon Dive on the UKZN Pietermaritzburg campus on February 9 at 19h00 for 19h30. Tickets R120. Booking:

Picnic evening: bring your food, but no drinks as there is a cash bar. Tables seat 10, but you may book for less.

(If you can’t make this performance, look out for the two shows at The Knoll Historic Guest Farm on Valentine’s Day and February 16. Check out Just Theatre KZN on Facebook, or email
