- Award-winning dinner theatre
- Typical “Kaapse Stories” from Cape Town, mixing music and comedy
- Cape Malay cuisine
This unique, award-winning, dinner theatre presents Kaapse Stories from the Mother City, a collection of stories from the Cape Malay community that has its roots in Cape Town. Featuring vibrant music, dancing and outstanding singing, audiences are introduced to a Cape family whose history unfolds throughout the evening with humour, rhythm and songs unique to Cape Town. Forged from the hardships and misfortunes from the past, what emerges is a picture of a triumphant community that exists today in South Africa’s Rainbow Nation. The theatre showcases local Cape talent, as well as the signature dishes of Cape Malay cuisine served over four courses and including a welcome drink of bubbly or freshly squeezed orange juice.
With walls covered in old posters and Bo Kaap street names, Rockwell Dinner Theatre is an ode to Cape Town’s rich history. Richard Loring and Roland Seidel established the supper stage with the aim of offering entertainment while also providing young artists with a platform on which to showcase their talents. Richard’s officially opened in 2012 with their first show, ‘Kaapse Stories from the Mother City’. The show is based on a true story of the Kleintjies family that lived through the events of pre- and post-democracy in Cape Town.
