Old Mutual Theatre on the Square 2012 line-upTheatre on the Square
Daphne Kuhn will be presenting another challenging year of quality theatre in Sandton for 2012 – 16 productions in the theatre’s 16th year.
“Something familiar, something peculiar, something for everyone, a comedy tonight!”
This is a sneak peak at the line-up we have planned for 2012. Forget about some Scandal and the Bold and the Beautiful. If you have a craving for real drama and pure entertainment, you will be glued to the gig guide at the Old Mutual Theatre on the Square.
Local and international plays each night, satisfying revivals, steamy musicals, spicy comedies, day time performances of a school set-work, cool classical music on Fridays at lunchtime and hot, sizzling jazz on Sunday nights.

Gaetan Schmid’s hilarious Body Language
Who would have thought that the human body could be so funny? But in Gaetan Schmid’s latest show, even the lowly goose bump gets a laugh. In his masterful hands, our body becomes a production, a stage on which many stories are played out – most of them hilarious!
Straight from sold out seasons in Cape Town, the Grahamstown National Arts Festival and the Hilton Festival, the production is not to be missed!
