October sees an action-packed programme of productions happening on the Playhouse company stages!

They open with iZulu The Musical, a captivating story of long-lasting love performed by a dynamic young cast of 26, backed by an 11-piece band. The show runs from September 29 to October 2, 2022. Tickets are R180 at Webtickets.

On Friday October 7 at 16h00, there’s Sundowners with Mthobisi Mthalane and Jerry Kunene. Entrance is free, so come chill - and bring some friends!

For Gospel enthusiasts, the Playhouse is proud to present Ntokozo Ngongoma, along with Putuma Tiso and Take Sure Ncube, while this month’s free Test Driving the Arts midday concert features more upcoming singers, dancers and musos, who are set to wow the crowds!

Another important landmark event this month is the We Can Festival, a live concert at The Playhouse on October 22, which spotlights an inspiring line-up of disabled music artists, who have successfully been selected via a national talent search, who will share the stage with music legends, while appearing alongside their non-disabled peers. Book through Webtickets.

The next Playhouse Community Conversation platform focuses on Sign Language, led by a panel of four, and they also have Vuma Zion Sama 25th Award winning artist embarking on a journey that unleashes urban and rural traditions of religious music, while zooming in on the history of Zion.

Finally, mention must be made of Samthing Soweto’s remarkable Now or Never Tour. Designed by the fans and curated by the pop artist himself, the show is set to be sensational!
