    What to Expect
    Head to Richard’s Supper Stage & Bistro in the evening for your show. You’ll kick off the evening with an array of authentic local appetizers featuring ‘Cape Malay’-style cuisine such as ‘snoek paté’ and ‘samoosas.’

    Following your pre-show snack, you’ll enjoy the first act of this engaging Cape Town stage performance. Directed by the award-winning Basil Appollis, the show offers the perfect introduction for international visitors into the unique communities that inhabit Cape Town and their vibrant culture. You’ll meet colorful characters like Grandpa Joe, brother Bernie, and the whip-smart granddaughter Genevieve, among others, marveling at their hidden talents, hilarious anecdotes and the remarkable stories of perseverance in the face of adversity.

    In between Act One and Act Two, you’ll pause for an included buffet dinner, during which you’ll sample Cape Town favorites like Vegetable Biryani, Cape Hake, Beef Fillet, and more. At the conclusion of the show, get a sweet taste of Cape Town after-dinner treats like ‘malva pudding,’ ‘melktert,’ and ‘koeksisters.’

    Leave the evening with a full stomach and a happy heart, still singing and smiling from this joyous expression of Cape Town’s incredible humanity and diversity.

    We thoroughly enjoyed the food, drink, song and dance. The staff made a fuss of my baby daughter and the whole show/ dining experience ran smoothly without any fuss. Well done!
