Summer in Cape Town means a lot of great activities, from musicals to delicious lunches and much more. The Mother City is always up for a good time and the warmer months are an excuse to let loose and have some fun in the sun.

Do you long for a musical theatre with a bit of a homegrown edge? Will you won’t have to look any further because David Kramer’s latest production, Orpheus in Africa will be running at the Fugard Theatre from Wednesday until 21 February! The musical is about the unknown tale of Orpheus McAdoo, an African-American performer and singer, and he will be played by Aubrey Poo, a local singer, actor and performer. This proudly South African is definitely a must-see.
