Based on the novel by Athol Fugard, Tsotsi, the Musical tells the powerful story of a hardened township criminal whose life changes forever after a bungled mugging leaves him caring for a stranger’s baby. With music composed by singer-songwriter Zwai Bala, and book and lyrics by Mkhululi Mabija, this gritty, contemporary musical adaptation is directed by award winners Neil Coppen and Khayelihle Dominique Gumede, with set design by Michael Mitchell and Neil Coppen, choreography by Standard Bank Young Artist Thandazile “Sonia” Radebe, lighting by Kobus Rossouw and costumes by Noluthando Lobese.
Tsotsi, the Musical is funded by the National Lotteries Commission and supported by the Western Cape Government Cultural Affairs and Sport department.
