Paul Cluver Forest Amphitheatre Summer Season 2009-2010

Nestling in a towering Eucalyptus forest, the Paul Cluver Forest Amphitheatre provides a unique, natural venue for an unforgettable evening under the stars.

The entire venue, from seating to stage, has been created from timber felled on the farm. The adjoining picnic area offers a tranquil setting for pre-performance meals, complimented by Paul Cluver Wines.

On 28 November the season kicks off with theatre supremo and star  presenter of Strictly Come Dancing and much loved judge of SA’s Got Talent, master showman Ian von Memerty and his whole family in The Von Memertys – A Celebration! It is a dazzling, full length, gorgeously costumed show featuring Ian, Viv, his latin and ballroom champion wife and their two children, Oscar 13, and Kasvia , 8. Ian gives a 'wry, funny' account of his relationships - with the piano (38 years), with Viv (19 years), with parenthood (16 years), and Showbusiness (25 years).

This show is a special fundraiser for Roxy Sutton, who has to endure much suffering due to Crouzonodermoskeletal syndrome, which affects the way her cranial and facial bones grow. Roxy’s is one of only 18 documented cases worldwide.

Supergroup Just Jinjer, back on home soil after a stay in the USA will  perform in the Amphiteatre for the first time with a very special unplugged show tailor made for the forest on 5 December.

On 12 December it will be Prime Circle with additional top musicians such as Gavin Minter, guaranteeing a great night under the stars. The new year kicks off with Nataniel  on 16 January with his magical mix of music and mirth.

Top Afrikaans artist Juanita du Plessis will perfom in the Amphitheatre for the first time on 6 February , with master rocker Clint Cunningham and his band Clint & Co returning on 13 February with a rollercoaster show packed with hits by Joe Cocker, U2 and Creedence. Guaranteed to rock the forest.  

27 February has a double bill featuring sensational Afrikaans performers Emo Adams and Bobby van Jaarsveld. The season ends on 6 March with the spectacular Viva la Diva! Symphonic Pops featuring Nianell, Zanne Stapelberg, Gloria Bosman and Monique Hellenberg with the University of Stellenbosch Symphony Orchestra conducted by Corvin Matei.
