MADIBA the Musical - a Celebration of the Life of Nelson Mandela will play at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre Theatre from January 17 – 20 and The Times has two double passes to give away.
The story celebrates the life of the former South African leader who would have turned 100 in July this year, is interwoven with stories of the fight against apartheid and forbidden love in a troubled land.
Australian producer Neil Croker said an exciting line up of talented singers, actors and dancers for MADIBA has been assembled with the role of Nelson Mandela being played by Perci Moeketsi.
The South African star of stage, television and film, Perci Moeketsi, dared to dream the impossible, encouraged by Mandela’s own words: “It is impossible until it’s done”.
‘It is beyond a dream come true’, beams the triple threat from Pretoria, the South African city where Mandela was both imprisoned and later inaugurated as President - so fitting that a star from this area is chosen for the pivotal role. Neil Crocker said, MADIBA is a production with both a fantastic and moving story, and some truly fabulous and joyous music and dance. This cast we have assembled of such authentic and talented actors, singers and dancers will deliver to audiences a memorable night of informative, challenging and uplifting theatre’. Popular Australian actor and singer, Tim Omaji, also known by stage name Timomatic, plays the role of Sam Onatou, a young black activist who is arrested in South Africa. The Australian tour marks the first English language production of MADIBA The Musical following acclaimed performances in France, Northern Africa and the West Indies.
