Your #lovecapetown weekend: Things to do from Friday 20 to Sunday 22 December, 2013
Fazielah Williams has lived in and loved her Mother City since birth. Having lived all over the Peninsula during her childhood, she now calls the picturesque City Bowl home and likes nothing more than watching the sun set over Table Bay from the window of her apartment.
A lover of the arts and proud Cape Town fanatic, Fazielah began her writing career by spending many hours as a child conjuring fantastical stories that featured independent heroines from faraway lands who saved the Prince instead. This Capetonian princess has enjoyed stints as a magical arts PRO and TV publicist before finding her calling as a travel writer.
When not waxing lyrical about the Fairest Cape’s most loved attractions and activities and embarking on unexpected adventures, Fazielah can usually be found taking in a show at one of the City’s fabulous theatres.
Mother City lovers, who’s ready for a fun-filled, captivating weekend in #lovecapetown?
Join me at the following events from Friday 20 to Sunday 22 December, 2013:
What can be more magical that this hilarious yet heart-warming retelling of the Charles Dickens’ classic at the Baxter Theatre?
Be enchanted by the all-star cast of this amazing production, with noteworthy performances by Marc Lottering as Scrooge and theatre legends Andrew Buckland, Shaleen Surtie-Richards and Christo Davids as the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future.
What sets this production apart from the countless others before it? Quite a lot, actually, but special mention must be made of the cast slipping easily between multiple characters, the angelic voices of the cross-cultural children’s choir and the subtle magic effects that are sure to leave you with a renewed sense of wonder.
