I just LOVE dinner theatre experiences and really didn’t know what to expect of Richards Supper Stage and Bistro … but …. I was blown away by the performances and the sheer talent of the singers – all round it was a fantastic night out!
“Kaapse Stories from the Mother City” had me enthralled from start to finish. Poignant, nostalgic, humourous and moving. From Grandpa Joe, to the rest of his talented family, to the car guard who just floored us with his gifted voice to the two bergies. It was Cape Town in full colour. I don’t want to give too much away but the music is a mix of South African songs (English, Xhosa and Afrikaans) and dance. I was brought to tears by the very remarkable tribute to Shirley Bassey. As the curtain fell, I went home with a full and happy heart… and very proud to be a South African.
This is not a gourmet meal but a good buffet.
Starters: When we arrived there was a Greek Salad and bread on the table. So if you are hungry you can start nibbling. We were then presented with snoek pâté and a samoosa. It was really tasty and scrumptious.
Mains: I was still torturing myself with a low carb eating regime which is an absolute pain when a big pot of sexy samp and a tray of baked potatoes are staring at you. I opted for some veggies, baked fish and fillet with a sauce. It was delicious and more than enough.
Dessert: The desserts are plated and there were cheesecake with koeksisters with a fruit skewer on our plates.
