The festive season is in full swing at the Baxter with three shows to choose from as the year-end celebrations kick in.

Nik Rabinowitz is now on in the concert hall until 14 December with his latest comedy Late Bloomer, the much anticipated Marc Lottering’s Aunty Merle It’s a Girl! has opened with a bang, and fresh from the veld is Ben Voss in Benny Bushwhacker: Human Nature.

Nik ruminates over his recent DNA test results and a host of other pressing issues in his stand-up show, directed by Rob van Vuuren, as he tries to figure out who he is, where he came from, where he’s going to and how he ended up here.

Late Bloomer runs Tuesdays to Saturdays at 8pm and ends on 14 December.

Since its recent opening, Aunty Merle It’s a Girl! has been playing to packed houses and standing ovations. Marc once again teams up with director Lara Foot and a cast of 13, plus a live band of seven musicians, who sing and dance their way through the drama and goings-on between Belgravia Road, Athlone and Bantry Bay. If you loved the first production of Aunty Merle, The Musical, this sequel brings even more drama and surprises.

The cast includes Royston Stoffels, Jennifer Steyn, Nicky Rebelo, Carmen Maarman, Zoleka Helesi, Rushney Ferguson, Julian Place, Sizwesandile Mnisi, Anzio September, Tashreeq de Villiers and Crystal Finck. The show runs until Saturday 1 February at 19:30 from Tuesdays to Saturdays, with matinees on Saturday at 15:00 and Sunday 22 December at 15:00. There will be no performances on 24 and 25 December and 1 January.

Benny Bushwhacker: Human Nature is written by John van de Ruit (Spud) and stars Ben Voss, directed by Janice Honeyman.

It runs from today, Tuesday 10 December to Saturday 18 January in the Golden Arrow Studio at 20:15 nightly with Saturday matinees at 16:00. The comedy highlights the importance of nature conservation. It opened at the 2019 National Arts Festival Makhanda (Grahamstown) where Ben won two Standard Bank Ovation Awards and has continued receiving rave reviews and full houses.

The usually sold-out New Year’s Eve Bash will once again see some of the artists lead the countdown on Tuesday 31 December to get the revelry started as the fun continues in the foyer after the performances. Aunty Merle It’s a Girl! and Benny Bushwhacker: Human Nature will both start later, on the night. Ticket prices will include entrance to the party.

Early booking for these shows and the New Year’s Eve celebrations are advised. V Book at Webtickets on 086 111 0005, online at www.webtickets.co.za or from selected Pick n Pay stores.
