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 truly enjoyed this trip! The singing and performances were conducted by locals who are truly talented. We heard opera singing, traditional songs and modern day music. The performance beautiful told the story of a family that was torn apart during apartheid when District 6 was destroyed. It was a very easy to follow stage play and kept my 10 and 13 year old engaged the entire time. I was so happy we booked ahead of time. There was a bus that was there, but because we had booked ahead of time, although we arrived a little late they were expecting us and had our table arranged and ready at the front! The food was traditional food of Cape Town. The food was good, not bad but not great--it will really depend on what you like. The service was very good! You could purchase wine beyond the complimentary wine if you wanted to. The performers were very warm and welcoming. At the end the audience was invited to performed with the actors. This was very fun for my children and our family. We left on a high note!
