Rhumbelow Theatre is to host Gary McKenzie in his one-man show The Singing Hippie from October 14 to 16, 2022.

Gary McKenzie. Actor. Singer. Director. Writer. Award winning theatre producer. Owner of one of the most successful supper theatres in the country (The Heritage Theatre). Founder and ex-member of The Gee Jays musical comedy trio for 35 years. Now a hippie.

After all that achievement and “bloody hard work”, Gary has now decided to follow his passion. Being a hippie, singing 60’s, 70’s and 80’s music and loving the sheer enjoyment of sharing a laugh, a little nostalgia, and just making people happy. ‘Cos we all know that the world needs to be a little happier right now.

Come join Rhumbelow for an informal afternoon/evening of remembering the times when music was music. Sing along. Get up and dance. Just let your soul free. We’ve all had a pretty torrid time of late. It’s our turn now to get happy. (and we’re not talking weed here ..!)

The show is appearing at The Rhumbelow Theatre (Durban) from October 14 to 16, and then plans to tour the country thereafter. So come along and see the birth pangs of an old age born again.

Performances taken place on October 14 and 15 at 19h30 and on October 16 at 14h00. (Venue opens 90 minutes before show for drinks)
