Take A Nostalgic Musical Journey With Amanda Strydom’s Acclaimed State of The Heart

Amanda Strydom brings her award-winning musical production, State of the Heart, to Mossel Bay at the end of the month – a not-to-be-missed opportunity for music lovers to take a nostalgic journey of South Africa in the sixties and seventies.

Accompanied by Janine Neethling, Strydom will perform this critically-acclaimed cabaret at the Garden Route Casino’s Bravo Lounge on Friday the 30th of May 2014.. Tickets to the show cost R60 per person and are available at the casino’s Customer Services Desk. Seats will be limited to preserve the intimate atmosphere, so people are advised to book early to avoid disappointment.

Strydom wrote State of the Heart in 1993 and won the Dalro and Showtime awards for Cabaret of the Year. State of the Heart, the first of her six self-penned one-woman plays, integrates a storyline with music to create a one-woman musical theatre experience.

This timeless love story gently pokes fun at the Afrikaner soul and gives a glimpse of the history of SouthAfrica from the twenties to the late seventies. It was a time when women had to know their place and peroxided their skins because freckles were consideredcommon. Men wore braces and smoked “Springboktwak” and “Boeremeisies” had to marry “Boereseuns”.

The heroine, Maxie de Meyer, a “boeremeisie”, falls in love with Raymond G. Bartlett, a dashing “rooinek”, who also happens to be a R.A.F fighter pilot – and a drama in the tradition of “Springbokradio” serials unfolds.
