“Kaapse Stories” at The Rockwell Dinner Theatre

Supper and Stage make for a delectable evening’s entertainment

“Kaapse Stories from the Mother City” is a dinner theatre at its best. A quirky mix of songs and stories that speak to the heart of every Capetonian and everyone who’s ever loved the Mother City. This popular dinner experience, which has surpassed 1000 shows over five years, has moved from Richard's Bistro in Sea Point to The Rockwell Theatre, at The Rockwell Hotel, in De Waterkant.

This delightful musical revue celebrates the joyful, resilient spirit of the colourful people who populate the city that lies at the foot of Table Mountain. Couched in the recent history of the Cape, “Kaapse Stories” deftly relates stories of Cape Town and her people, their struggles, victories and personalities, all with a hefty dose of comedy. With classic songs made famous by artists such as Miriam Makeba, Freddy Mercury and even Shakira (with the “World Cup” song), there is something for everyone. The opera part of the evening is stupefying, but, hush, we don’t want to reveal any more. Spellbound best describes what audiences are when they discover the magical voices and soaring talent on display in this unique, local production.

The theatre buffet too, is packed with enough local and international flavours to make it a star in its own right. Being able to enjoy a four-course meal at the new venue means audiences don’t have to rush to eat before the show or struggle to find a kitchen that’s still open afterwards. The Rockwell Dinner Theatre is a great choice for a special occasion because the dinner and theatre mix allows patrons time to chat and share a meal, as well as enjoy fine entertainment. The new venue is not only larger, it is also wheelchair-friendly and, parking and acoustics.

You can expect your meal to consist of traditional dishes, such as starters which include a Malay samoosa and snoek pate served with roast vegetables, with a salad and bread basket on the table to enjoy. Main meals consist of a buffet of vegetable biryani, fish, beef fillet, potato bake, chicken, samp, rice and other classic Cape dishes. They did not forget about going all out on the desserts with melktert, koeksisters, malva pudding and a fruit sosati.

The brainchild of business partners Richard Loring and Roland Seidel, “Kaapse Stories” is a wonderful combination of the founders’ strengths. Richard recently celebrated 50 years in showbiz, has over 20 years’ experience as a producer and is perhaps best known in South Africa for “African Footprints” (the longest-running musical in the country). On the other hand, tourism entrepreneur Roland is German, but passionately South African at heart and determined to show people that Cape Town is more than just beautiful views. Before teaming up with Richard to showcase South African talent and cuisine, he owned and ran Seidelberg Wine Estate in Paarl.
