“Calling Us Home, the musical that raised the roof and brought audiences to their feet is returning to Cape Town for one week only!

Grace, an African Princess – fleeing a devastating war in her homeland, arrives penniless, in the freezing, grimy docklands of an American city. The underworld of this city is ruled by the evil gang lord Ivan who, after an unexpected encounter, has set his sights on Grace. But another, the street-smart Rafael, a young construction worker with bold ambitions, is determined to capture her heart. Will his quest lead only to tragedy? In this new world, Grace befriends Rafael’s reckless sister Isabella and together they must fight to survive and keep their dreams alive…

This epic Musical, composed and written by Alice Gillham and directed by New York Director Peter Flynn, will bewitch you with its spectacular music and move you to laughter and tears – as it celebrates love and the triumph of hope.

South Africa, this is your last chance to see Calling Us Home before it leaves our shores… ”
