Heritage theatre: dinner and dance

2012-06-05 00:00

IF you love the eighties, then head down to the Heritage Theatre in Hillcrest, and catch Alive and Kicking until Sunday.

Hot on the heels of the recent Eighties Legends concert in Durban, the theatre is offering patrons a new and experimental concept in the genre of supper theatre.

Instead of simply sitting down, enjoying a meal and being entertained, Alive and Kicking invites the audience to get up and dance with the performers.

“We’ve had an eighties-style under-lit dance floor made specially for the show, so the audience can relive the days of Club Med, Raffles and Slippers Boogie Palace,” says owner Gary McKenzie. “We thought we’d give it a try and see how people respond to a dinner-and-dance night out.”

The show features eighties favourites like Hungry Like The Wolf , Just Can’t Get Enough , Dancing With Tears In My Eyes , Shout, Tainted Love, Let’s Dance, Safety Dance, Big In Japan and many more.

Performing the numbers are Barry Thomson, Dawn Selby, Cali Thomson, Mali Sewell, Fabien Mitchell and newcomers Jerryn Fosteras and Darren Marais on vocals.

Doors open at 7 pm from Tuesday to Saturday, and at 12.30 pm on Sundays. Tickets are R190, including a two-course meal from Wednesday to Saturday and R165 (including a two-course meal) on Tuesday and Sunday. Tickets for the show only are R100. To book, phone 031 765 4197. Every Friday is dress-up night, with prizes for the best-dressed couple.
