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 and produced by Richard Loring of internationally acclaimed “African Footprint” fame, this quality production with a strong emphasis on entertainment allows international guests to discover the colourful history of the Cape and its vibrant people. This option includes a return transfer to and from your hotel within the Central Cape Town and Atlantic Seaboard area.

A great way for Margaret and I to finish a real dream holiday. Tremendous value in a superb setting. The waiting staff were attentive, efficient and quite charming and the performers showed true talent. Back of house the food was well prepared and presented. A special mention for Pearle who booked us into the event. Patient, informative and absolutely lovely. Thank you all for a most memorable evening. Chris and Margaret - Chris Knipe


My sister and I really enjoyed the show and the food served. Drink prices are good. the shuttle service was perfect and punctual on time. The waiter service left a bit to be desired, nothing else to take away the evening glow. We asked for the script of the show in Portuguese and we were served, but the brochure came with the flag of portugal, so we left the tip that is also placed in Brazil, because Brazilian customers like to be recognized as Brazilians. No more everything was great and I will definitely recommend it to my clients. Thanks for the opportunity. Best regards - 4U Operadora - Marcela Souza


Our friends in South Africa had recommended this show, so my wife and I decided to give it a try whilst visiting Cape Town. Firstly, we appreciated that the tickets included transportation from our hotel to the show and back again at its end - but moreover, the show in itself turned out to be the most funny and witty experience we'd had for a long time. All characters were unique, and each of the actors performed the funny and unpredictable plot in a very special and entertaining way - involving the audience in several parts of the show. The food didn't stay behind the show - very delicious and characteristic dishes, inspired by the different ethnic cuisines of Western Cape. All in all a superb experience that even superseded our high, initial expectations. This is definitely a place to recommend to all who are looking for good entertainment and good food with a specific local touch! - Bernd Kätow


We fully enjoyed the stunning performance and the beautiful voices. The story tells a lot of Capetown‘s life and circumstances as we‘ve learned during our several stays in that wonderful city. We would recommend your show to every tourist! Keep on doing a excellent job! Best regards Guido and Malou - Guido Eberle
