Your #lovecapetown weekend: What’s on from Friday 15 to Sunday 17 August, 2014
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.
Hey #lovecapetown, are you ready for the weekend?!
72 hours of unbelievable fun, adventure and inspiration await you in the gorgeous Mother City …from creative exhibitions to adrenaline-inducing festivals and fabulous musicals, there is just so much to see and do in our hometown.
Join me at these amazing events in and around Cape Town, from Friday 15 to Sunday 17 August, 2014:
Rocky Horror Show
Toucha, Toucha, Touch me, I wanna be dirty…
Pull on those fishnets stockings, grab your feather boas and rock that sexy corset for the return of the saucy musical, The Rocky Horror Show at The Fugard Theatre in District Six.
Guaranteed to be a thrilling night out, this award-winning production about a newly engaged couple’s wacky visit to the home of Dr Frank-n-Furter, the Sweet Transvestite, and his kooky minions, stars the insanely gorgeous and funny Brendan van Rhyn, Paul du Toit and Jenny Stead in the lead roles and is an absolute MUST-SEE!
Don’t dream it; be it… book your tickets at Computicket.
If the launch party of this year’s premier creative event, the Open Design Cape Town, is anything to go by, this eleven day fest of inspiration is going to be EPIC!
From moving theatre productions to incredible installations and eye-opening tours to interactive workshops, the second annual Open Design festival is definitely a highlight on our World Design Capital’s calendar.
