STEPPING OUT (article first published : 2008-07-30)

St Anne’s Theatre Festival 2008 will host Stepping Out with The Golden Entertainers

Stepping Out is a real must for anyone who loves the music of Broadway and the tap-dance routines of the likes of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. The programme will feature many of the showstoppers like Singing in the Rain, River Dance, and some Cliff Richard favourites. Or how about S’Wonderful or Top Hat to lead you down memory lane? For 13 years, this group of vibrant tap-dancers and singers has gained a high reputation for the quality of their performances in and around Maritzburg, and audiences are usually in awe of the fact that four of the group are between the ages of 64 and 80! Indeed, it is a surprise to find such ability and positive energy from a group who do not regard growing older as a reason to stop enjoying life and making a worthwhile contribution to the community.

Stepping Out will be packed with colour as each new number unfolds in a different costume and includes some comedy to give extra spice. Their version of Elvis Presley’s Jailhouse Rock, for instance, is bound to leave an indelible impression on one’s mind, not to mention their rendition of The Fairies.

The show will delight all ages. Proceeds of ticket sales will be used to send The Golden Entertainers on tour to the South Coast to entertain and delight audiences at old age homes and retirement villages. After the show, relax with a cup of tea and cake, served in the beautiful setting of the St Anne’s College front lawn.

Stepping Out takes place on August 9 at 14h00 in The Theatre – St Anne’s College. Tickets R30 booked on 033 343 3300.
