KIDS FOR KIDS (article first published : 2001-10-5)

The Kids for Kids Variety Show, which was first performed in Durban last year, will again be staged at the Playhouse Opera Theatre at 18h00 on October 13.

This fundraising concert is performed by hundreds of talented local young children and once again promises a feast of light-hearted entertainment that will delight audiences of all ages. The audience will be greeted by a Steel Drum Band outside the Playhouse before being entertained by groups that include Durban Dance Unlimited, the Celtic Dance Company, Very Special Arts, Creative Kids Club, Cato Manor Vibe, PG Bison Buccaneers Marching Band and the SA Funk Dance Team.

Produced by Mark Hawkins of Very Very Big Productions, this one-off show is being organised to raise funds for the needy children of Durban. It is presented by the Rotary Club of Durban Thekwini in association with the Playhouse Company, which has made the Opera Theatre available for the occasion.

Last year R16,800 was raised and passed onto four charity organisations who work with children: St. Theresa Home, St. Martin's Home, R P Moodley School and the Durban Benevolent Fund. It is hoped that this year the show will bring in R50,000 which will be distributed to other needy organisations.

The main sponsors of the Kids for Kids Variety Show are Robertsons Foods (Pty) Ltd and Nedbank. Advertising space is still available in the programme, which ranges from R50 for a small insert to R600 for a full page. Anyone wishing to insert an advertisement should contact Shirley Gerber on (031) 312-8887 or 301-3126.

Tickets R20 from TicketWeb as well as from the Playhouse booking office, Edgars stores at the Pavilion, La Lucia and West Street, the Issue Shop at the Musgrave Centre and Mr Delivery on the Berea. Credit card reservations can be made on 0831 400 500, www.ticketweb.co.za or at Dial-A-Seat on (031) 369-9444.
