Kinky Boots is the latest star spangled production to take Cape Town’s Fugard Theatre by storm. Now, thanks to an overwhelmingly positive response, the show will go on until February 2020.

This means holidaymakers checking into Cape Town self-catering accommodation for the festive season will get to find out what all the fuss is about.

Kinky Boots

Like Cats, Kinky Boots is one of those musical productions that has captured the imaginations of theatre goers worldwide. It’s based on the real life story of a struggling shoe factory owner who finds his chance for fame and glory in the most unlikely place. The show is filled with foot-stomping fun, glam and heart-warming scenes and it’s a must-see for anyone who enjoys stories with a happy ending.

The UK version of Kinky Boots went on to win Tony’s, Grammys and the prestigious London Olivier Award and it shows in this South African rendition of the show.

While this version is only loosely based on the original, it brings an excellent South African essence to the stage which is both hilarious and heart-warming. It’s a brand new, non-replica interpretation of this spectacular show that hits the sweet spot with both local and international audiences.

The show joins the long line of smash hits produced by the Fugard Theatre team, like Funny Girl, West Side Story, Cabaret and The Rocky Horror Show. It’s presented by Eric Abraham.
On stage, you get to see Darren Craig of Grease and High School Musical fame in action alongside Early Gregory, who’s best known for Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat and Into the Woods.

The show takes to the stage at 8pm on Saturdays and Tuesdays with extra matinee performances on Saturdays and Sundays at 3pm. You can get your tickets from the Fugard Theatre website or from their box office.

Upcoming Attractions

You can also catch up with the Fugard Bioscope World Arts Cinema Season every Monday in November and December at 3pm and 7pm. This series features films centred on the performing arts, such as hit shows and classic ballets.

On 2 February, Kinky Boots makes way for another theatrical gem, “Master Harold” … and the Boys. This play, written by Athol Fugard explores deep-rooted race issues and the ill-fated friendship of a white boy and two black servants during the apartheid era.
