King Kong at the Fugard Theatre

December 12, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - February 18, 2018 @ 10:30 pm

R160 - R280
King Kong The Fugard

Overwhelming public demand will see the wildly-popular show, King Kong, return to Cape Town’s beloved Fugard Theatre.

No, this is not the legendary story of ‘it was beauty which killed the beast’ – but rather a proudly South African story of heavyweight 1950’s boxing champion Ezekiel Dlamini, whose ringside name was ‘King Kong’. The famed boxer shone during the early apartheid years in South Africa and his story made it to the stage during the first run of King Kong – way back in 1959!

A live 9-piece band, under the direction of Sipumzo Trueman Lucwaba, accompanies the action at every performance.

Book your tickets today for this knockout performance.
