Actors Maurice Paige (Isidingo’s Calvin) and Theodore Jantjies (7de Laan’s Xander) will be back on stage together this month when they perform Platform 9 – Two Park Station at the Baxter’s Golden Arrow Studio.

The sequel to the popular Platform 9 production will run from Monday 14 December to Saturday 16 January, with a special show on New Year’s Eve.

Written and directed by Christo Davids (7de Laan’s Errol), the comical two-hander performed in Afrikaans with some English, has sold out theatres throughout the country.

The three award-winning soapie stars grew up on the same street in Heidelberg.

In the performance two friends get on the train on Platform 9 at Cape Town Station to ride to Park Station, Johannesburg. On the journey they meet a variety of unique characters and face a barrage of amusing obstacles.

“Through storytelling, music and dance, these two award-winning actors take the audience on a highly entertaining journey which they will not forget,” Christo says. “Ultimately it is a story of friendship.” V Tickets for the show cost R110 each from Computicket, while tickets for the New Year’s Eve party in the Baxter foyer after the show cost R180.
