THEMIíS GUITARS! (article first published : 2000-12-22)

A KZN hit show with a KZN cast in Cape Town? That makes a change. Currently running at the Nico Theatre in Cape Town until January 12 is Themi Venturasís The Guitar that Rocked the World, a show that played to great acclaim in Durban earlier this year and is due for a return visit to the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre in February. (See review on artSMart, by now in Music Archives)

The Guitar that Rocked the World is a rockin' and rollin' celebration of the much-adored Fender Stratocaster guitar that will appeal to the whole family. The Fender Strat (as it is known) is all-American icon - like Harley Davidson, rock 'n roll and Disneyland. It has a long and illustrious list of players to its name, including the likes of Eric Clapton, Hank B Marvin, Jimi Hendrix, Buddy Holly, the Beatles's George Harrison and Dire Straits's Mark Knopfler.

A production of this magnitude would not do justice to the instrument it pays tribute to without a red-hot band led by livewire Barry Thompson as musical director. The production has been written and directed by Themi Venturas and Peter Court has designed the set designer and is responsible for the musical staging.
