IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST
Venue – MASQUE THEATRE
Dates – 31 MAY 2019 to 15 JUNE 2019
A Trivial Comedy for Serious People is a play by Oscar Wilde. First performed on 14 February 1895 at the St James`s Theatre in London, it is a farcical comedy in which the protagonists maintain fictitious person? to escape burdensome social obligations. Working within the social conventions of late Victorian London, the plays major themes are the triviality with which it treats institutions as serious as marriage, and the resulting satire of Victorian ways.
Venue – Grand West Arena & Casino
Dates – 26 November 2019
After an exceptional response from his support slot at Ed Sheeran, Passenger is coming back for more and will perform solo for his South African fans!
Passenger`s new album, Runaway, is his tenth recorded album in 11 years, this time embracing the epic sound once again with unforgettable melodies and colossal choruses.
Passenger has come a long way since the release of his first album, Wicked Man`s Rest, back in 2007. The initial incarnation, in which Rosenberg was backed by a full band was followed by his reinvention as a solo artist, a year touring the world in support of Ed Sheeran and then his hit song, Let Her Go – followed, winning Rosenberg an Ivor Novello, and currently approaching two billion plays on YouTube.
Claude Bolling Suite Jazz with an African Twist
Venue: Grand West Arena & Casino

Zafroics is made up of a team of well known musicians who are acclaimed locally and internationally. They are Rashid Lanie (piano), Lex Futshane (bass), Stacey van Schalkwyk Naidoo (flute), and Godfey Mcina (drums and percussion). Collectively, their expertise spans an eclectic blend of musical styles that include intercultural approaches to music making.
