This Eric Abraham and Fugard Theatre production is brought to you by the award-winning creative team who brought you the run away Fugard Theatre smash hits THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW, CABARET and most recently FUNNY GIRL.

This glorious multiple award-winning Musical – based on a Conception of Jerome Robbins with Book by Arthur Laurents, Music by Leonard Bernstein and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim – will open in the Artscape Opera House in March 2018 and will feature a full, live Orchestra!

Come and enjoy arguably the most famous, legendary Musical hits of all time which include “The Jet Song”, “Maria”, “America”, “I feel pretty” and “Tonight” as the incredible creative team and scintillating local cast breathe new life into this Musical Masterpiece!

This is a massive Musical, on a grand-scale which is not to be missed!
