Smash Hit musical Kat & the Kings to return to the Fugard Theatre for a Summer Season by popular demand from 24 November.
The Fugard Theatre's critically acclaimed production of Kat & the Kings - the award winning all South African musical created by David Kramer and the late Taliep Petersen - returns to the Fugard Theatre in Cape Town by popular demand after a sold out season at Pieter Toerien's Montecasino Theatre in Johannesburg. Kat & the Kings is set in Cape Town's District Six in the late 1950s and explores the journey of teenager Kat Diamond and the cappella group he forms, The Cavalla Kings. Veteran actor Danny Butler, who recently celebrated his 1000th performance in the production since he took the role as Old Kat Diamond in 1995, reprises his role as the Old Kat. Dean Balie is the Young Kat Diamond, Grant Peres plays Bingo, Zak Toerien is Magoo, Carlo Daniels is Ballie and Amy Trout plays the part of Lucy. Kat & the Kings is a ' a feel - good, bop till you drop musical blast that's fun, fun, fun all the way, a joyous jive that'll put a smile on your dail and worth seeing twice'. (Business Day) with a live onstage band that has had audiences leaping to their feet and dancing in the aisles, night after night.
