Press Release
The Market Theatre and Metro FM present Comedy & Music Extravaganza
Issued by: The Market Theatre  
[Johannesburg, 8 November 2012]

The Market Theatre has joined forces with Metro FM for this year's festive season with a series of unmissable live performances by combining some of South Africa's music and comedy icons.

The Market Theatre will set the stage alight in Jozi with a super-star line-up of leading performers. Music superstars such as Lira, Thandiswa Mazwai, Zahara, Oliver Mtukudzi, Trompies, Rebecca Malope, Ringo Mandlingozi and many more will entertain Mzansi audiences during a four-week period.

Comedy heavyweights - Mark Banks, Alan Committie, Siv Ngesi, Eugene Khoza, Trevor Gumbi and Tumi Morake - are guaranteed to deliver side-splitting humour that will leave you begging for more with their take on the state of the nation.

The Festival of Classical Music boasts some of South Africa's finest classical performers from internationally renowned Opera Africa, Soweto Quadro and Inferno Opera. This will leave the audiences enthralled by some angelic, breakthrough opera, never experienced before at the Market stages.

What makes the Market Theatre performances so exciting is the venue's intimacy. Get up close and personal with the artists. It promises an experience that Gautengers will enjoy without having to break the bank!

The Market Theatre is the place to be from 13 November to 9 December 2012.

Bookings are now open @computicket. Tickets are selling between R75 and R200.
