Fresh from returning from his 2022 international tours, DAN PATLANSKY brings fans another rendition of his hit offering, entitled ME, MYSELF & MY STRAT.
After years of touring his solo acoustic show, DAN decided to bring his trusty electric guitar along, and will be performing songs from the past and present. While the show can be considered a stripped back version of the full band show, but don't be fooled: It still packs plenty of punch and heaps of soul!

Iewers in die grys
 

24 – 26 Mei 2022 - 20:00

Drostdy Teater

Skoolkinders het drome vir die toekoms, maar hoe word 'n lugkasteel bo gehou in 'n land waar onregverdigheid en regverdigheid so eenders lyk? Aangrypende fisieke teater. Geheime, hoop en teleurstellings. Kan Heather en Gideon die toets van tyd deurstaan? En hoekom kyk niemand meer na die sterre nie?
Alle veiligheidsprotokol word gevolg
Maskers verpligtend

 

School children have dreams, but can it really come to pass in a country where the lines between justice and injustice are blurred? Spellbinding physical theater. Secrets, hopes and disappointments. Can Heather and Gideon withstand the test of time? And why does no one look at the stars anymore?
All safety protocols are followed
Masks mandatory
