Kaapse Stories

Cape Town

Activity Description

Kaapse Stories from the Mother City is an exciting vibrant new musical revue which offers a blend of humorous storytelling, powerful and emotional songs and likable performers unique only to Cape Town. Intimate and enchanting, the show allows the audience to get to know and meet the Kleintjies family whilst giving us an insight into a vigorous cosmopolitan community that thrived at the foot of Table Mountain in District Six. Grandpa Joe, known to everyone as ‘Pa Joe’ takes us on a journey of extraordinary events along with his family, legally adopted or otherwise- brother Bernie, uncle Charlie and precocious granddaughter Genevieve, along with a host of other surprise characters who display their hidden talents and delightful sense of humour, whilst showing resilience and pride. Directed by the award winning director Basil Appollis, this quality production with a strong emphasis on entertainment allows international guests to discover the colourful history of the Cape and its vibrant people.

Customer Reviews

Good Morning! Thank you so much for the wonderful evening! My guests had enjoyed the show, ambience, and the food very much. I had a few guests that were reluctant but as the evening progressed, they thoroughly enjoyed. I would like to however point out that there were some instances where the show was in Afrikaans and Xhosa, and during these times the guests were a bit lost in not knowing what was happening.. but otherwise it was wonderful They enjoyed the food very much! Would bring my guests anytime! - YSH/Fabulous Group 1
