Customer Reviews

Vielen Dank für den gelungenen und schönen Abend!!!! War abwechslungsreich und super Künstlerin mit tollen Stimmen!!!! Wir waren begeistert!!! - Viola Balzer

The show was above what was expected! The venue is intimate and we loved the interior design and slide show pictures that played in the background. The cast and the band gave a great show wich showcased a variety of great talent. We loved the comedy aspect of the storyline and the diversity of the great talent that was showcased. The buffet was huge and offered a variety of well known local dishes. The food was a bit average but is most likely due to us being locals. The buffet was still a very good spread for out of town visitors. Overall fantastic experience. - Candice Arendse

A colleague and I went to watch Kaapse Stories at the Rockwell Dinner Theatre and I must say that we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The story was a varied coverage of aspects of people of the Cape. Boeta Joe gave a brief intro to his family history and current family members in the cast. The rest of the play touched on many aspects and I get that the producers tries to keep the play and experience humorous even though it touched on affected of slavery and forced removals, to people resorting to life on the streets. The dinner was delicious and I noted the variety was due to the mixed cultures we find in the Kaap. It's definitely a show I'd recommend to all. - Faisal Petersen

What a lovely show! Good story, lots of good singing and good fun. The dinner was delicious as well. What more can we ask for? Don't miss it! - Emilia
