CONCESSIONS FOR SHAKA MUSICAL (article first published : 2001-03-6)

Edmund Mhlongo is offering low price preview and concessions for his new musical Bayede Shaka - The Spear is Born which features his K-Cap Alive Kids and runs at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre from March 7 to 25. The preview has been slotted in on Wednesday (March 7) at 19h30 with tickets selling for only R10.

The hard-working, dedicated and busy KwaMashu Durban-based theatre group has received international acclaim after travelling extensively abroad with this dramatic large-scale musical. The show pays tribute to the life of influential Zulu leader, King Shaka, and bears a slight resemblance to the English legend of King Arthur, with uShaka's magic spear being compared to King Arthur's mighty sword - Excalibur. The production celebrates the life of uShaka as a Zulu hero, a builder of the Zulu kingdom and a promoter of African unity.

The company wants as many people as possible to see this acclaimed new musical, so in addition to the low-price preview, there are various special schools performances. At present, there are still tickets for the show on March 16 at 11h00. Tickets are selling at a hugely discounted price for this show. More details from Chris Majozi can give you more info on the schools' performance on (031) 309 6530.

Normal tickets R30 throughout with discounted prices at R15 for pensioners and scholars discounts on Tuesdays and Wednesday. There are block booking rates of 10% for any block booking over 10.

Public bookings for the season is at the door or in advance through Computicket, credit cards on (031) 304-2753, or online at http://www.computicket.com.
