Zip Zap presents Journey Beyond

Zip Zap brings a new life to the circus, with incredible artists ready to thrill audiences young and old. No more dancing dogs, big tops, and drum rolls. The Zip Zap cast is reaching its peak of classical entertainment, with artists painting with their bodies and defying gravity.


A Midsummer’s Night Dream

This year Rustenburg Girls’ High School and Rondebosch Boys’ High School present a collaborative interpretation of Shakespeare’s, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, in the newly refurbished Memorial Hall of Rondebosch Boys’ High School. This is fitting in so many ways; perhaps most appropriately because the two great schools now also share a Senior Dramatic Arts Department.


Alessandro Taverna Piano Recital at the Baxter Theatre

Alessandro Taverna’s music stimulates the senses as does his nature Venice and gives rise to a feeling of wonderment. Catch him at the Baxter this weekend.
