FREE TICKETS FROM DURBS MAGAZINE (article first published : 2008-01-31)

Online publication DURBS Magazine is giving away two tickets to the Daniel Millar Fund raiser of the show Natural Woman at The Barnyard Theatre at Gateway on February 2.

“Daniel Millar is a young man fighting for his life with an aggressive form of Hodgkins Disease,” explains artSMart editor Caroline Smart. “He is the son of Keith Millar who is in charge of RBF productions in Durban – which means that anything produced through SABC Durban on radio falls under his control. Keith and I go way back to the radio drama days of Springbok Radio and Radio South Africa when he worked on the controls and I acted in numerous plays and serials under such legendary names as Tom Meehan, Anne Freed, Delphine Lethbridge, Yolande D‘Hotman and Don Ridgway. I really would urge people to support this performance as the medical costs are terrifying. Tickets are R100 per person and can be booked on 082 572 1130.

“Things took a turn for the worse over the weekend. Daniel is now in a deep coma and has been moved to Hospice where he is receiving their wonderful love and care. The fundraising performance is going ahead as planned and the idea is that some of the money can be used – if it is Daniel’s fate to leave us shortly – for some kind of living memorial like a scholarship or a sports trophy. The tragic irony is that Daniel is a former top class bodybuilder.”

Natural Woman which runs into the beginning of March takes a seductive and powerful look at the history of women in modern music seen from a feminine perspective. The four female vocalists will be led by powerhouse Barnyard favourite, Ramaine Barreiro Lloyd.

Durbs was originally in print with an internet back presence since 1995 and has been online in a major way since 2005. DURBS is a general interest magazine with an artistic bent dedicated to the people of Durban and KwaZulu-Natal.

“It’s your magazine!” says editor Anton Lasich. “We aim to support the arts and all individuals in the arts. We feature interesting personalities. Our current issue features art-fundi Caroline Smart and past features have included Debora Patta, Sophie Ndaba, Brumilda van Rensburg, Lisa Bobbert, Cliff Simon and Paul Buckby, to name a few. It is kept up to date by Hanlie Koekemoer with Interesting TV and ticklers for your favourite soaps plus a host of interesting articles and information.”

The hearts of the editor and staff of DURBS go out to the Millar family - you are in our prayers.
