THE GREAT AMERICAN SONGBOOK (article first published : 2005-03-27)

Well-known entertainer Colin Penn is busy working on his latest show after having raised R13,000 for the Rotary tsunami relief fund in January.

“Whilst America might not have had the best of presidents all the time, they are without peer when it comes to songwriters,” says Colin Penn. “Irving Berlin, George Gershwin, Jerome Kern, Rogers and Hammerstein, Burt Bacharach, Henry Mancini. The list goes on and on.”

The Great American Songbook runs on April 8 and 9 at the Kloof Town Hall. Tickets R60. Bring your own picnic basket but there will be a cash bar. Bookings on 031 705 2225 or 082 920 0091.

There will be a performance on April 10 at the Courtyard Theatre in Mansfield Road at 14h30. This show will feature a 90 year-old saxophone player. Bookings via Barbara on 031 205 9305.

The production then moves to Hilton where there will be one performance on April 17 at the Hilton College Theatre at 14h30. Tickets R45. Bookings through the Theatre on 033 383 0126.

Colin Penn will also appear on May 5 at The Andy Capp pub night at Crinkley Bottom in Hillcrest on the Inanda Road. “The venue offers real pub grub with lots of singing, lots of gags,” says Colin. Phone Crinkley Bottom to book.
