I’m gambling that Marikana – The Musical will come to Gauteng

Marikana – The Musical is presented by The National Arts Festival in association with the South African State Theatre.  That’s why I’m gambling that it is going to get a run in Pretoria as well as its four performances at the National Arts Festival.  As much as I want to see it, I am going to delay in the expectation of seeing it in Pretoria.

Marikana – The Musical is adapted from We Are Going To Kill Each Other Today – The Marikana Story by Aubrey W Sekhabi.

This is a large cast (twenty actors) led by Meshack Mavuso and Mpho “Mckenzie” Matome as they tell out the tragic tale which led to the loss of 34 lives at the hands of the police. This sordid story describes one of the most important events of modern South Africa and it carries a PG 14 rating.

Directed by Aubrey Sekhabi, set design by Wilhelm Disbergen, lighting by Declan Randall, choreography by Thabo Rapoo, the artistic team is superb and this augurs well for a wonderful production.  The actors include Aubrey Poo and Emma Mmekwa as well as Meshack Mavuso and Mpho “Mckenzie” Matome and a chorus.

Marikana – The Musical is showing at Graeme College Theatre on Monday 7 July at 14:00 and 19:00 and again on Wednesday 9 July at 14:00 and 19:00.  Duration is 2 hours, including a 15 minute interval and tickets are R65.00.
