The Masque Theatre in Muizenberg has a number of exciting shows lined up for the next few weeks. Have a look at the programme:
The ballet is back!
Cape Town City Ballet returns to the Masque Theatre for the fifteenth consecutive year with a Summer Classics programme that features a range of classics from its repertoire.
Glazunov Variations, a ballet by world-renowned choreographer, Ashley Killar, was seen for the first time in South Africa in the Artscape Opera House last year, while Stairway to Paradise was created by Robin van Wyk to Gershwin’s music to herald in the New Year in style.
The programme also includes the spectacular Diane and Acteon pas de deux – a challenge to any dancer – and gives a glimpse of Van Wyk’s new Romeo and Juliet, danced to the familiar Prokofiev score.
Where and when: Masque Theatre, Muizenberg 2 – 4 February
Love and sex and more
Love Sex Fleas God: Confessions of a Stay At Home Father is a stage adaptation of the book of the same title by Bruce Clark, starring David Muller and directed by Celia Musikanth.
The play traces Bruce’s life from childhood to fatherhood. It’s a journey from the stranglehold of a cult upbringing, to freedom and self-discovery which is frequently punctuated with comic and witty moments.
In this engaging one-man show, Muller morphs from one role to the next, as the audience witnesses a transcendence from a down-and-out abused teenager to a loving father of two children. As the story unfolds, the versatile Cape Town actor also essays the protagonist’s grandmother and mother, as Bruce’s insightful supportive wife allows him to be far more than just a stay-at-home dad. The metamorphosis from an insecure and angry young man to proud father is inspirational and makes for absorbing theatre.
Where and when: Masque Theatre, Muizenberg, 8 -18 February
