Theatre in the Park in Delta Park has been captivating audiences for almost a year, and the latest instalment, Amanda Strydom’s Amanda Strydom in Concert turned back the time to the first Theatre in the Park performance in January.
Due to the vision of Linden’s Lyall Ramsden, producer at Phly Media, Theatre in the Park is bringing shows in the park to the neighbourhood on a monthly basis.
“The event launched in February with Amanda Strydom,” he said. “It’s a great platform for Joburg audiences to experience the magic of intimate performances.”
And Strydom again returned on 8 September, followed by South Africa’s favourite pianist Rocco de Villiers on 30 September.
Visitors can enjoy a drink or a bite to eat at the pop-up restaurant right next to the tree-lined outside dining area.
Not only does the location offer live shows, cinema screenings of the latest theatrical shows are also shown.
The seats even come from His Majesty’s Theatre in downtown Joburg. They were donated many years ago.
Ramsden said Jannie du Toit in his Bonjour Monsieur Brel, the songs of Jacques Brel, will be the next show on 27 October.
The show spans a collection of Brel’s work in English, French, Dutch and Afrikaans.
Thereafter, on 24 November Kaleidoskoop, the acoustic music group is set to perform, followed by a traditional Carols by Candle Light on 2 December.
More future shows and events are planned and you can stay up to date by visiting the Theatre in the Park’s Facebook page.
