NOT THE MIDNIGHT MASS (article first published : 2000-10-10)

Performing since 1988, Not The Midnight Mass is arguably South Africa's most enduring theatrical success story. The production, which comes to Durban for a three week run at The Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre from October 30, was well-received by audiences at the Hilton Arts Festival last month.

Running for 12 years the group's stalwarts, Graham Weir and Christine Weir, are now joined by actor-writer Adrian Galley and musical actress Neisha-Anne Harley who blend seamlessly into the group adding a wealth of fresh appeal. The show's emphasis turned to their original songs and compositions.

Singing like angels but with a devilish wit, they have been hailed both nationally and internationally for their unique blend of harmonies, humor and original writing. The exquisitely talented a cappella-singing-wizards feature a range of original material and goonish skits, alongside a mischievous treatment of classical and evergreen favourites. The show is 90% South African music, including songs by writers James Phillips and Roger Lucy.

After its appearance at the Baxter Concert Hall at the end of 1999, critics hailed the production with remarks such as an “inspired smorgasbord of musical delights” (Mail & Guardian) and “pure vocal dexterity mixed with a huge dollop of fun" (The Argus).
