Satin to Sequins – More Than A Minstrel is a festive musical production, written and produced by Oddball Concepts, that aims to entertain while de-stigmatizing the culture of Cape Town minstrels.
Fictional characters Mr Biggs and The Woodstock Darlings first entertained crowds in 2014 with a behind-the-scenes look at the mechanics of running a minstrel troupe. This year, in a reworked version, they also showcase the human side to the often misconceived minstrel. There is more to the guy in the satin suit – he too pays taxes and he too struggles with love and loyalty.
Venue: Concert Hall, Baxter Theatre Centre, Main Rd, Rondebosch, Cape Town
