    And they’re back! Yes, it’s that time of the year again, when our Sultans of Song dust off their vocal chords(!) and bring us their annual tribute to music of the past. This year it’s the Seventies – the “Me” Decade – a period of great changes in the music scene, when icons were made, horizons were stretched and musicians broke out of their boxes and went where their dreams (and substances) took them!


    The list of musicians whose music has been chosen for this show reads like a veritable who’s who of 20th Century icons, and goes from the sublime to the ridiculous, depending on your taste. Names such as John Lennon, Elton John, Neil Diamond, Carole King, Paul Simon, Jim Croce, James Taylor, Gloria Gaynor and groups like The Rolling Stones, ABBA, Three Dog Night, Four Seasons and Creedence Clearwater Revival, conjure up images and memories of a seminal period of music. This was the soundtrack of a decade. Woodstock was over, but it opened the floodgates for a diversity of music which stretched the boundaries of Rock, Pop, Country and Folk, and brought us to (dare we say it?) Disco!


    Bringing the songs to life again this year are the highly talented singers we have all come to love: Erin Fourie, Sandra Styles, Brandon Bosch and Daniel Rossouw.  The show is directed by Peter Mitchell with Sound Design by Marcus Henning.


    If a groovy evening of nostalgic music (from a decade when music was music) is your bag, then come chill with us. It’s gonna be far out, if you dig…

    Be there or be square!


  2. Fantastical Flea Circus

    Fantastical Flea Circus

    Fantastical Flea Circus heads for Pmb

    Kids of all ages, shapes and sizes, come to The Hex for some jolly surprises; for a merry morning of magic & mirth, with the Teeniest Tiniest Circus on Earth!

    Roll up, roll up! The colourful children’s show, The Fantastical Flea Circus, heads for Pietermaritzburg for the first time, for a short season at UKZN’s Hexagon Theatre from 8 to 12 December 2015. 

    First staged in 2011 at the Catalina Theatre, this popular production scooped all awards in the Children’s Category at that year’s Durban Theatre Awards. Since then the Small Top antics have been seen by thousands of delighted youngsters, playing at schools and venues throughout the province.

    A jolly mix of song, dance, rhyming verse and clever tricks, The Fantastical Flea Circus is written and directed by Clinton Marius, creator of the much-loved radio soapie, Lollipop Lane, as well as the Standard Bank Ovation Award-winning comedy, B!*ch Stole My Doek.

    The production stars the award-winning Shona Johnson as world renowned opera singer, Duchess De Nunu, and talented Durban actor, Verne Rowin Munsamy as her travelling companion and professor of Fleaology.

    Shona Johnson teaches at the Helen O’ Grady Drama Academy in Durban, and runs her own company - AWEH! Theatre. She was previously seen in the smash hit, B!*ch Stole My Doek, and has also appeared in ten other stage productions, including Reality Bytes, Beyond the Big Bangs, and PopCom. The vivacious actress has previously been nominated for four Mercury Durban Theatre Awards. Verne Rowin Munsamy, who is Artistic Director of the Catalina Theatre, and also of ScruffySession Productions, has written and directed numerous shows, including Reality Bytes, and No Contest! He also appeared in the adult panto, Sinderfella, and the Bollywood musical, Consenting Silence.

    Together, the duo present a merry band of fleas in an exciting line-up of circus acts, including a high-wire routine, a car race, a cannonball and bull’s-eye stunt, a high-dive act, a strong-o-mometer, and a disappearing hand trick.

    “When writing this play, I wanted to create a piece for youngsters that would also entertain and amuse their parents and older siblings, so that the whole family could enjoy a theatre-outing together,” says Marius.



    “Wonder-flea entertaining,” enthused The Daily News reviewer, Latoya Newman, while The Mercury’s Arts Editor, Billy Suter, found the show “BIG fun from tiny stars… flecked with fun rhyming verse and featuring some short songs … a charming way to fill an hour”. 

    Daily performances of The Fantastical Flea Circus at The Hexagon are at 11am. Tickets are R80. Booking is through Computicket outlets at Shoprite Checkers. For phone bookings, call 0861 915 8000, or book online at
