Tony Manero was king. In the 1970s disco era there were no bigger moves, no bigger sounds than those of John Travolta and Saturday Night Fever. The strutting, the energy, the suit, the hair, the music … nobody could do Tony Manero quite like Travolta…. right…..?
Saturday Night Fever will be directed by award-winning Greg Homann, with choreography by the multi-talented Weslee Swain Lauder and musical direction by Naledi award winner Rowan Bakker.
“The biggest challenge right now,” Jay admits, “is to discover a new, youthful, highly charismatic South African actor / singer / dancer who will then have the opportunity to become a dazzling theatre star by playing the demanding role of Tony Manero.”

Singin' in the Rain, another critically acclaimed award-winning production direct from London's West End, will be produced and presented in South Africa by Pieter Toerien at the the Teatro at Montecasino from 15 January 2016 until 13 March 2016.
Singin’ in the Rain made a big splash the moment it premiered in the UK. The show, now touring internationally with a stellar South African cast, is currently playing to sell out houses in Hong Kong after wowing audiences in New Zealand, the Philippines and Singapore, and South Africa is next!
This superb production has delighted audiences in Cape Town and now it's Johannesburg's turn to buy tickets to this fabulous show.
Set in 1927, Singin' in the Rain tells the story, made famous by Gene Kelly and Debbie Reynolds in the iconic 1952 MGM movie. Singin' in the Rain is a brilliant comedy about the film industry, with its egomaniac stars, monstrous film moguls, fickle fans, classic ‘golden-era’ moves and slapstick humour.
The spectacular production is packed full of the charm, romance, comedy and tinsel town glamour and features wonderful tap dancing sequences with all the well-known songs from the glorious MGM score. The magical Singin’ In The Rain scene where it rains live onstage is one of the big highlights of the show, leaving audiences in the front rows a little wetter than when they first arrived!
Whilst a little water is splashed into the first three rows of the auditorium (known as the Splash Zone), most of the water is drained back into holding tanks, filtered through sand and UV light, and recycled for the next performance.
With its joyous story, high-energy choreography and sumptuous set design and costumes, Singin’ in the Rain showers you with everything you could wish for in a hit musical.
Singin' in the Rain is at the Teatro at Monte Casino in Johannesburg from 15 January 2016 to 13 March 2016. Performances are Tuesdays to Fridays at 7:30pm, Saturdays at 2:30pm and 7:30pm and Sundays at 1:00pm and 6:00pm. Tickets cost from R200 via Computicket, 08619158000 or box office via 011 510 7995.
Please note, the first 3 rows of the stalls (A – C) are designated as the “splash zone” where there is a strong chance of a shower during the show's big number. To avoid getting wet, please do not select seats in these rows.

The Daredevil Run is a massive countrywide phenomenon. And for good reason. It’s not only about doing something a little daring, fun, unique and liberating – it’s about raising awareness and at the same time, using the power of collective action to inspire positive change.
The 2016 Daredevil Run 19th February looks set to be the biggest Daredevil Run to date.
Having a conversation about our balls isn’t comfortable. But it’s got to be done. So sign up for the run, get yourself checked and join batallions of brave men (and the women who support them) as together we help run cancer outta town.
All funds raised from your entry fee go towards cancer screeningand awareness programmes across the country. So the more Hollard Daredevils that run, the greater our impact will be.
The annual Daredevil Run is 4km long, which brings 3000 runners from five cities across the country (Jozi, CT, DBN, George and Nelspruit) together to 'run cancer out of town' by raising awareness and running in purple Speedos.
It doesn't matter if you're not in shape, the message and cause is what it's all about on the day.
If you've signed up, you'll be eligible to enter the #MANuarySA competition, which includes two flights, accommodation for two nights and car rental from Kulula. You just have to upload an image on social media using that hashtag and tagging Daredevil.
The Daredevil Run is all in aid of raising awareness for cancers affecting men. To hype it up and to make sure we're running cancer out of town, we are calling on all runners to sign up at www.daredevilrun.com, snap a pic of their entries or themselves in a purple Speedo using the hashtag #MANuarySA. There's a great prize up for grabs from us and Kulula, so get involved. T's and C's apply.
