KZN’s Rhumbelow Theatre is test-driving a temporary concept, which will assist in keeping the Rhumbelow top of mind, get the finances ticking over (as the organisation has monthly fixed costs) and hopefully assist performers, artists and musicians who will not have any source of income.

Below are test-driving links to YOU TUBE (not public - you need to have the link)

Roland Stansell, Rhumbelow manager and entertainment co-ordinator explains: “We have loaded shows that appeared at the Rhumbelow during the last 10 or so years. If there is a show that grabs you, please feel free to click on the link and watch the show. We would ask you to make an appropriate donation for the show that you have watched, so that we can also share any income with the relevant performer.

“We would ask that on the banking reference that you indicate the show that you watched so that we know who to share the revenue with.”

Banking Details for Rhumbelow Theatre:

Branch Code: Nedbank  Musgrave  130126
Generic Branch Code: 198 765
Acc No: 2301348474 (SAVINGS)

Name of Account : Rhumbelow Theatre
Fax for Deposit Slip : 086 685 0300 (if not electronic transfer)

We are testing this as an option over these difficult times and would appreciate your reply/feedback on what you think of this idea.

Have fun and explore this as a new creative idea to keep theatre and theatre practitioners sustainable.

Laurel Canyon wasn't much to look at. A few modest bungalows and log cabins crammed between an occasional faded mansion that had been left over from the days when it was a secluded, semi-rural retreat for Hollywood's silent-movie stars. And yet from the quiet of the densely wooded canyon came a music revolution that would change popular culture.
