LIGHTS, camera, action! The Luitingh Alexander Musical Theatre Academy (LAMTA) is excited to present its much anticipated blockbuster dance production – Hollywood – set to light up the stage from 19 to 29 June 2024 at Theatre On The Bay in Camps Bay. As with last year’s hugely successful Vintage Jukebox, the annual LAMTA dance show has become a calendar highlight and Hollywood promises to immerse audiences in the lavish world of Tinseltown, highlighting both its undeniable allure and hidden complexities.

Hollywood features a spectacular array of works choreographed by some of South Africa’s leading names including LAMTA graduates Anna Olivier and Naoline Quinzin, the duo behind the sensational Spring Awakening choreography, alongside Jared Schaedler, Duane Alexander, Brigitte Reeve Taylor, Michelle Reid, Sven Eric Muller, Zoë Aldridge, Ashley Searle, Robin van Wyk, Chesney Stanfield and Emile Petersen. Each one brings their unique style and flair to the production, promising a show brimming with variety and creativity.

Audiences can expect an exceptional exploration of Hollywood’s most loved genres – from the Golden Age of cinema, through the stylistic era of film noir to modern day romantic comedies. The production also takes a peek behind the scenes, touching on prevalent topics like the true cost of fame and fortune, Tinseltown politics and the ultimate sacrifices made by those seeking a place in big screen history. Hollywood is a must-see for dance lovers and film aficionados alike, offering an engaging narrative expressed through stunning choreography and dramatic visuals.

Tickets cost between R150 to R250 through Webtickets or book at the box office on 021 438 3300. The show is suitable for all ages. Performances run Tuesday to Saturdays at 7.30pm with matinees at 2.30pm on Saturdays. For learners and dance studios wanting to secure group discounts, contact Ingrid on 066 564 1816.
