The Studio in Ramsgate announce that they are delighted to have secured two intimate, theatrical shows performed on two consecutive nights by actress and singer, Barbie Meyer.

These two shows are hilarious, entertaining and yet vastly different to each other!

December 10 at 18h00 for 18h30: Piano @ The Studio

For this elegant soirĂ©e type evening, Meyer teams up with her partner in piano-crime, Jonathan Brauteseth. 

Expect fine piano playing; exquisite singing, an elegant supper and a ridiculous amount of laughter - all mixed into a delectable and outlandish brew.

Together, Meyer and Brauteseth form a formidable, quirky and entertaining pair. They ooze personality and offer both haunting and playful duets interspersed with hilarious bits of information about the ridiculousness of humanity, each other and the lyrics they perform.

The show is refreshingly unpretentious yet glamorous enough to haul out your faux fur and pearls. So, don a pair of heels, slip on a crisp shirt and don’t miss out on an intimate and spectacular evening of musical entertainment and good food.


December 11 at 18h00 for 18h30: Marico Moon

Marico Moon is Barbie Meyer’s latest show on one of South Africa’s finest literary masters: Herman Charles Bosman.

Herman Charles Bosman (1905-1951) was a South African writer and journalist who became famous for capturing the rhythms of backveld Afrikaans speech even though he wrote in English. He is widely regarded as the greatest short story writer to come out of this country.

Whether you have read Bosman’s works or not, Meyer’s compilation of his stories in Marico Moon will delight and surprise you.

Meyer’s use of pauses and impeccable comedic timing are what sets her apart as a top storyteller. Her unpretentious style, tangible passion for these stories and love for this genre of storytelling simply oozes out of her every pore when she is on the stage, pulling the audience right into the veld with her. Meyer has been recognised as something of a Bosman fundi and has performed her plays countrywide.
