The Centre for Creative Arts at UKZN is proud to present the “Cabaret and Beyond Festival Showcase, 2023”. Durban audiences will remember the inaugural 2021 event said to be “Slick, sophisticated and superb” Billy Suter and a “Joyful return to Showbiz” Caroline Smart.
With new songs by composers who were selected for the CAB writing mentorship programme, this showcase is directed by Steven Stead & musical director Evan Roberts. Featuring return talents of Samantha Landers and Lyle Buxton, new cast members include much loved local songstress Roshanda Lewis and multi-skilled leading man Emkay Khanyile.
CAB project manager, Roland Perold, who led the composer/lyricist participants through the mentorship programme has curated an exciting lineup of songs. Led by the accomplished creative team the showcase is sure to exceed expectations and the CCA looks forward to welcoming back its audience for the next “Cabaret and Beyond” installment.
