Eric Abraham and the Fugard Theatre present a brand new, original production of this huge-hearted, smash-hit musical which is currently running at the Fugard Theatre and is booking to 27 October.

Inspired by true events, Kinky Boots was first brought to life on the big screen in 2005 before being transformed into a hit musical, winning six Tony and three Olivier Awards.

Kinky Boots features a Tony-winning score by Cyndi Lauper and a book by four-time Tony winner, Harvey Fierstein. Winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical, Tony Award for Best Original Score, Tony Award for Best Choreography and Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Musical, Kinky Boots has played to sold out houses on Broadway and in the West End since 2013. This mega-hit is a must-see for all musical theatre fans.

Charlie Price has reluctantly inherited his father’s shoe factory, Price & Son, which is on the verge of bankruptcy. Trying to live up to his father’s legacy and save his family business, Charlie finds inspiration in the form of Lola, a fabulous entertainer in need of some sturdy stilettos. As they work to turn the factory around, this unlikely pair find that they have more in common than they ever dreamed possible, and discover that when you change your mind about someone, you can change your whole world.

Kinky Boots will be performed at the Fugard Theatre on Tuesdays to Saturdays at 8pm with a matinee performance on Saturdays and Sundays at 3pm. Tickets can be booked directly through the Fugard Theatre box office on 021 461 4554 or through the Fugard Theatre’s website at www.thefugard.com
