Don't miss the opportunity to be among the first people to see this rare phenomenon - a musical written by Africans themselves, bringing together a mixed cast of black and white characters with intoxicating music and a powerful story, skillfully told by talented performers from Africa and Scotland.
If you like 'The Lion King' then you will want to see this 'new kid on the block' - “Shona The Musical” which will delight and amaze in equal measure. The story is based on recent events in Zimbabwe where under Robert Mugabe, the country burned and the lives of all its citizens - black and white - were thrown into turmoil.
These premiere workshop performances are only playing for three nights - 25, 26 & 27 October and limited numbers of free tickets are available. So if you are looking for a theatrical experience that will change you forever, grab your chance to be part of the audience in first showings of 'Shona The Musical”.
Thanks to our partners in this venture - Neo Productions, Creative Scotland, Department of Arts & Culture - South Africa, Napier University, Edinburgh College and of course our host venue - the Festival Theatre as part of Capital Theatres. Also thanks to the many individuals on stage and behind the scenes who have helped us get to this point - come and see the results of our collaboration!
