SERENDIPITY (article first published : 1999-07-16)

Serendipity, scripted by well-known and award-winning actor Drummond Marais with musical arrangements by Trevor Harper, is an original piece of music theatre which was first performed at the recent Standard Bank National Arts Festival in Grahamstown Festival (see review on this website under “festivals”).

In Serendipity, Drummond shares the pain and joy of his journey towards self-discovery. While there are often moments of poignancy and sadness, Drummond is a master of irony and comedy timing and these skills keep the script on a light-hearted and often hilarious level. Songs have been chosen to fit the storyline and range in style and vintage from Somewhere over the Rainbow and Room in Bloomsbury to Alfie, Yesterday when I was Young, What Kind of Fool am I?, On a clear day and Maybe This Time.

Drummond Marais is an experienced and well-known performer in the professional theatre. He was last seen in Durban in the Playhouse Company’s production of Return to the Forbidden Planet. Other recent shows include Love! Valour! Compassion! for PACT and La Cage Aux Folles and Little Shop of Horrors - both for the Civic Theatre

With Trevor Harper’s sympathetic piano accompaniment, this sophisticated and highly entertaining show opens on July 27 in the Playhouse Cellar.
