Simon’s Town’s stars shine on camera

2015-07-21 06:00

A new local television show came to town last week to shine a spotlight on the hidden talent of Simon’s Town.

Showville is a small-town talent competition in which celebrity hosts Rob van Vuuren and Bontle Modiselle visit a different town each week.

The show has the premise that every town has a story and every town has a star. Showville visits towns to make locals’ dreams come true.

Last week’s production of the show played out mostly at the Simon’s Town city hall on St George’s Street.

The four finalists selected performed for the cameras and in a finale their performances were put to a town vote at the city hall on Wednesday night. In front of an audience of friends, family and the local community, the winner was crowned the best Showville act of the night. The winner was awarded R10 000 and a glittering trophy signifying that they are Simon’s Town’s favourite act.


The series will be screened on SABC2 each Saturday at 20:00 from 7 November. For more information visit
