A Handful of Keys

30 August 2017 to 8 October 2017

Handful of KeysPieter Toerien Productions presents another installment of A Handful of Keys, directed and created by Ian von Memerty. The performance unravels as a constant surprise with “devastating wit and musical mastery” – from piano pyrotechnics to inspiring inventiveness. For the first time since the show’s launch in 1994, there are three keyboards and three pianists on stage – Roelof Colyn, 19-year old James Smith and a special guest.

Audiences are entertained with 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, as well as new material.

“The impersonations are hysterically funny, and bring life to iconic pianists in a wonderfully light-hearted manner that still shows a deep veneration for the instrument and its masters.” Read Rory Appleton’s review of A Handful of Keys.
