A HANDFUL OF KEYS in South Africa

Submit Updates Images | Videos | Cast | Edit

A HANDFUL OF KEYS, South Africa's most successful musical revue ever, will return to Theatre on the Bay from the end of August. Launched in 1994 as a co-creation between Ian von Memerty and Bryan Schimmel, the show has played to more the 420 000 people in over 1450 performances over the last 23 years. Multiple awards, love letters from the critics and adulation from audiences have poured in for this show, which aims to be a brilliant, hilarious and virtuosic celebration of the piano. The show piles devastating wit upon musical mastery, incorporating piano pyrotechnics and inspiring inventiveness into a two-hour fireworks display of excitement, energy and sheer, mind-blowing talent. Von Memerty, taking charge of the director's chair once again, has expanded and developed the show with this year's onstage artists, Roelof Colyn and James Smith. Audiences can still expect highlights such as "The Complete Broadway Musical in 12 Minutes" and the medley of South African music as well as the traditional nods to Liberace, Elton John and - but with sparkling talent on stage, the opportunities to showcase new material will not be missed!
