A Handful Of Keys

16 & 17 February, 2012 | The First Group Theatre, Madinat Jumeirah

A Handful of Keys, a fun filled family show for all, is directed by its creators Ian von Memerty and Roelof Colyn as they give a dazzling display of pianistic virtuosity and hilarious impersonation on two grand piano’s. A performance of constant surprise, intelligence and wit, with music ranging from the great classic masters Bach and Beethoven; through the kings of soul Ray Charles and Fats Waller to the queens of showbiz Elton John, Freddy Mercury and Liberace. Not to mention a number of witty and whacky show pieces including the show stopping 100 years of The Broadway Musical in 12 minutes!

Featuring the theatrical power and experience of theatre legend Ian Von Memerty alongside the musical genius and comedic charm of Roelof Colyn, one of South Africa’s most prolific musical directors, this show is a theatrical tour de force from two artists working at the very edge of versatility and virtuosity. From Liberace to Liszt, Bach to Billy Joel, Nat King Cole to Norah Jones, Stevie Wonder to Elton John.

A Handful of Keys has done over 1,100 performances, won 9 national awards, and sold out consistently on countless return national tours over the last 18 years! It is that rare event, a completely fulfilling night of superb entertainment – more than 350,000 delighted audience members simply cannot be wrong! Don’t miss your chance to witness something truly spectacular at The First Group Theatre, Madinat Jumeirah.
