(Thomie Holtzhausen)

Onstage@Altitude’s season of shows (one per day) kicks off with Georgy Porgy which will be performed on Friday, March 26, 2021.

Directed by Peter Court and loosely based on Roald Dahl’s short story, the show will be performed by Thomie Holtzhausen.

Georgy Porgy heralds the hysterical history of George. His childhood - and especially his memories and experiences of his rather “liberal” mother - have made George exactly who he is today … a platteland vicar in a small female-dominated parish in the Free State.

George has a rather idiosyncratic view of the opposite sex. He considers women beautiful, aloof and alluring but they reside upon pedestals high above common man.

But women are also curious, very curious … especially about George’s vows of abstinence and celibacy. This fact, women find a fascinating mystery … and what woman can resist a good mystery …?

The show takes place on March 26. Doors open at 18h00 and the show starts at 19h30. Patrons are welcome to bring along snacks/picnic basket. A cash bar is available. All bookings through Quicket

The performance will be limited to 50 audience members in line with Covid regulations, and the venue is sanitised before and after each performance. The show can also be booked for corporate events, with the same maximum seating capacity, through Thomie on 064 476 9533.

Onstage@Altitude is at 25 Silver Avenue, Greyville, and has ample safe street parking with security guards on duty.
