CHICAGO FOR DURBAN (article first published : 1999-06-23)

Northcliff High School in Blackheath, Johannesburg has, over the past 20 years, built up a tradition of fine musical presentation. Under the careful and exacting guidance of Nick Jourdan, the many productions, including Guys & Dolls, the new Pirates of Penzance, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and Hello, Dolly! have achieved resounding success.

Upon seeing his first Northcliff High production last year (Hello, Dolly!), the new headmaster, Mr David Klein, said that if first sports teams could be sent on tour to represent the school and match their achievements with others, so the drama team should - after their months of dedication, rehearsal and preparation - be sent out to show off and share their excellence. Would that there were more enlightened school principals around!

In a bold and daring move, the young and hard-working will appear in the Playhouse Drama in this year’s production, John Kander and Fred Ebb’s Chicago, and if the reactions of the home audiences are anything to go by, Durban theatregoers are in for a treat!

The show has a gala opening on July 13 with drinks and snacks before the performance at 19h30. Performances from July 14 to 17 start at 19h30. There will be two matinees – on July 14 and 17 at 14h30. The show on July 18 will be held at 18h00. Book at Computicket.
