This new show is an extension of the group’s Kanna-nominated show of 2024 Kaapse Kabaret.
Leslie Kleinsmith is a well-established and much-loved cabaret and jazz performer that hails from District Six in Cape Town. Having honed his craft by studying masters like Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, and Sammy Davis Jr. in his early years, Kleinsmith has gone on to become an established voice on the South African musical landscape.

Over the years he has also become adept at various musical styles such as popular music, R&B;, and big band swing. In this show Kleinsmith teams up with award-winning contemporary Cape jazz pianist and musical director Ramon Alexander and his trio, to perform music and tell stories from his tenure with legendary pianist Tony Schilder, his lead roles in hit musicals such as the Goema musical, District Six and Guys and Dolls. Furthermore, expect to hear fresh interpretations of Alexander’s extensive catalogue of recorded music.

Kom geniet die vertoning as deel van Drostdy Teater se Winterfeesprogram! Ons gaan die kaggel in ons “Upstage Lounge” aansteek, die gaste bederf met heerlike tuisgemaakte etes en natuurlik ‘n glas wyn! Ons het onlangs wonderlike nuwe onderdak ruimtes bygevoeg by die teater om te verseker dat ons tydens die reënerige, koue dae wat voorlê ook ‘n warm, droeë en huislike atmosfeer vir ons gehore en kunstenaars kan bied. ‘n Heerlike Wintergereg met ‘n glas pas-rooiwyn is hierby ingesluit.

Dinner from 18:00
