MADIBA – The Musical

October 7, 2018 @ 12:00 am - October 21, 2018 @ 12:00 am


Madiba the Musical is a wonderful celebration of the life of Nelson Mandela who would have turned 100 in July this year.

Taking us through the many decades of his life, this inspiring and captivating musical does not hold back from the brutal reality of his fight for freedom. This tale of humanity will warm your heart, have your feet tapping and your soul singing. Playing in the beautiful Melbourne Comedy Theatre, it sets the perfect scene for the story of forbidden love and the fight against the apartheid, marking 25 years since it’s abolition. We especially loved the modern twist with narration in rap, break-dancing and contemporary African dance and vocal traditions.

Playing the role of Nelson Mandela is Perci Moeketsi, a South African star of the stage. Perci joins Tim Omaji;  Tarisai Vushe; Blake Erickson; Madeline Perrone; Barry Conrad; Ruva Ngwenya; David Denis along with  Courtney Bell and Riley Sutton to star in this energetic and compelling new stage show.

You must get a long and see it! We could not recommend it more and opening night had a standing ovation.  See below for details in Melbourne before the show tours the rest of Australia.
