    HUGH MASEKELA IN CONCERT
    VENUE: OPERA THEATRE
    DATE: 19 DECEMBER 2014
    Hugh Masekela is a world-renowned flugelhornist, trumpeter, bandleader, composer, singer and defiant political voice who remains deeply connected at home, while his international career sparkles. He was born in the town of Witbank, South Africa in 1939. At the age of 14, the deeply respected advocator of equal rights in South Africa, Father Trevor Huddleston, provided Masekela with a trumpet and, soon after, the Huddleston Jazz Band was formed. Masekela began to hone his, now signature, Afro-Jazz sound in the late 1950s during a period of intense creative collaboration, most notably performing in the 1959 musical King Kong, written by Todd Matshikiza, and, soon thereafter, as a member of the now legendary South African group, the Jazz Epistles (featuring the classic line up of Kippie Moeketsi, Abdullah Ibrahim and Jonas Gwangwa).

    MZANSI FELA FESTIVAL 2014 in association with City of Tshwane
    VENUE: VARIOUS VENUES
    DATE: 1 – 15 DECEMBER 2014
    The SA State Theatre’s annual Mzansi Fela Festival is back again from 1 - 15 December 2013. The Mzansi Fela Festival has become one of the most anticipated festivals of the year in the Tshwane Metropolitan. The festival presents some of the most exciting music, theatre, dance, comedy and poetry in South Africa. Launched in 2007 the festival has grown in leaps and bounds from being “Mzansi on Stage” to “Mzansi Fela Festival” presenting the arts and diversity of our country.
    Mainstream theatre performances consist of the old and new works, the festival will also feature dance, comedy, rock and poetry.
    And of course the programme would not be complete without the line-up of development theatre productions through the Fieldwork Program, an initiative to unearth the next generations of writers, directors and actors.

    CALL US CRAZY
    VENUE: MOMENTUM THEATRE
    DATE: 22 JANUARY – 1 FEBRUARY 2015
    Call us Crazy is essentially a hilarious comedy that sees South Africa laughing at itself. Fast-paced, multi-conventional, full of pun and intended meaning, Call us Crazy tells the story of a disillusioned road construction worker, Oompie, whose mission is to tar all the roads in the world.
    Having worked for the same construction company over 27 years, Oompie breaks ranks with his colleagues, Half-Half and Amper-Amper, in a huff after concluding that they work for an ungrateful and chauvinistic employer. While Oompie's dream to tar the world sounds like an impossible and idiotic idea, a finer line of an ambitious character emerges as he succeeds in opening his own construction company, which he aptly calls Vuka! Africa Road and Paving Construction Company.

    Tony Kgorogo

    Be the first to experience Joseph Clark’s latest show before it opens in The Netherlands in March 2015!

    Joseph Clark, greatest interpreter of “Queen”! His magical performance and individual style take the iconic group’s music to another level. “Not just another QUEEN/Freddie Mercury look-alike show, but like no other Queen-show in the world!” Clark and his band cover a magnitude of jewels that have never been performed live. 

    CAST

    Joseph Clark - Lead Vocals/Piano

    Nathan Smith - Lead Guitar/Vocals/Backing Vocals

    Trevor Donjeany / Andrew Roman – Bass

    Peach van Pletzen – Drums

    Richard Brokensha - Guitars/Backing Vocals

    Kyle Petersen – Musical Director Keys/Backing Vocals

    Director - Elzette Maarschalk

     

    Those who have never seen this enigmatic artist in action will soon get the chance when he graces the stage at The South African State Theatre in January 2015

    Not a Queen fan? This is the show to convert you. Clark will take you on a roller coaster ride with his powerful renditions of some of the greatest songs ever written, like We Will Rock You, Another One Bites The Dust, We are the Champions, I Want to Break Free, Under Pressure, Who Wants To Live Forever and Bohemian Rhapsody. But, Queen is not all about rock‘n roll. The group crossed all musical genres with rock, ballads, anthems, pops, blues, jazz, classical, musical comedy and even disco! The line-up of songs is like no other “Queen show” in the world. Joseph Clark and his band will “woo” you with songs like You Take My Breath Away, Is This The World We Created, Get Down Make Love, Killer Queen, Too Much Love Will Kill You, Innuendo, Sleeping On The Sidewalk and more!

     

    Some of the songs they cover have never been performed live! These songs were recorded by Freddie before he passed away and no other artist has been or is currently performing this magnitude of jewels from Queen!  

    Director, Elzette Maarschalk says this is not just another QUEEN/Freddie Mercury look-alike show, although one can’t get past the strong on-stage resemblance, physically and vocally, between Clark and the iconic Mercury.

    The production has all the elements to make up one hugely enjoyable evening when Joseph takes Queen’s music to another level performing it in his own individual style.

    “For me Joseph Clark has long been one of the great interpreters of Queen's music and he certainly doesn't disappoint with this magical performance. His vocal versatility comes magnificently to the fore as he moves effortlessly from the quiet ballads, to blues, to rock.” - Peter Feldman Copyright Artslink.co.za © 1997-2004
