A Handful of Keys Auditions Notice

Rhumbelow Theatre, Umbilo: Monday 30 October
South Africa’s iconic piano show, A Handful of Keys, is coming to Durban and is on the lookout for a new pianist to feature in the line-up.
As the show tours, the management is sourcing pianists in each region to be guests star joining Roelof Colyn and newcomer James Smith in the run of A Handful of Keys which is coming to Durban this November.
Auditions will take place on Monday 30 October at the Rhumbelow Theatre, in Umbilo.
The director of A Handful of Keys, Ian von Memerty, will be in Durban to host the audition process starting at 10:30am.
Co-creator of the historic show, von Memerty said, “You will need to perform one razzle dazzle piano piece, in any style. And then a contrasting number – a song, a parody or something completely different. So please prepare two totally different pieces to blow us away!”
The successful pianist would need to be available to perform in A Handful of Keys for the Durban run at the iZulu Theatre at Sibaya Casino and Entertainment World from 8 – 19 November.
Audiences can still expect highlights such as ‘The Complete History of The Broadway Musical in 12 Minutes’, Liberace, Elton John, Stevie Wonder, Funeral for A Friend and the SA Medley.
“But of course we are always open to opportunities to invent new material!” says von Memerty.
If you are keen to showcase your piano-playing prowess please email sophie@pubmat.co.za for further details, and to book your space, before Friday 20 October.
The Rhumbelow Theatre can be found at 42 Cunningham Rd, Umbilo, Durban. Parking is on site.
