Kenyan Musical: Rohio & Juliet, Feb. 16-17 & 23-24, 2013 @ Braeburn Theatre – Gitanga Rd

Rohio&Juliet Poster
Synopsis
In a plantation there is usually the illusion of an idyllic farming group. However, beneath its deceptive exterior, the Chola’s plantation is everything but calm. The Cholas are uptight and feel entitled to the land and the people that work their land. The farm workers have little or no rights, until one of them becomes a lawyer, and their re-education begins. Then the unthinkable happens – he falls in love with his family’s masters’ daughter. What follows is a dramatic musical adventure full of humor and tragedy.

This is the story of Rohio & Juliet, a Kenyan story loosely based on Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, the classical romantic tragedy. The musical aptly tackles issues most pressing to Kenyans. As we gear towards elections these are issues that we cannot afford to ignore and this dramatic musical puts a mirror in front of us with full doses of laughter, excitement, choreographed dance and original music by the Mamlaka Hill Chapel Drama team. The musical captures the true issues that we continually face us Kenyans, and which most people will readily relate. Rohio & Juliet delivers a powerful message in a truly unique theatrical performance that is bound to leave us all with the potent choice – love or war?

Opera: Ondieki the Fisherman, Apr. 20-22 2012 @ Braeburn Theatre

This weekend sees the Kenyan Opera, ‘Ondieki the Fisherman’ performed at Braeburn Theatre, Gitanga Road. Composed 40 years ago by English Teacher Francis Chandler and performed at the time by the girls of Limuru Girls High School to celebrate the schools 50th anniversary, this opera is making a big return to stage thanks to the tireless efforts of Soprano, Rhoda Ondeng.

The Opera tells the all too familiar story of a fisherman by Lake Kisumu, who ruins his life, and that of his long suffering wife, through drunken reckless behaviour. Rhoda has put together some of the best soloists, choirs and orchestra members, some who have travelled from as far as Sweden and Norway.

Autism Awareness Kenya presents Horseboy, Feb 4 2012 @ Braeburn Theatre

Autism Awareness Kenya will be showing the movie Horseboy on Saturday, Feb. 4th from 1:30-5:00 pm. The movie will start promptly at 2 pm and tea/discussion will follow the movie. There is NO childcare provided and this is NOT a child’s film. The cost is 200 KES/person. It will be shown at The Austin Room, Braeburn Theatre, Braeburn Primary School. Take bus/mat 46 to Kawangware and alight at Braeburn Primary School.

This is a wonderful movie that is sure to have a lively discussion to follow!

“The Horse Boy does more than chronicle Rowan and his parents’ journey across the vast, wild landscape of Mongolia. It delves into the strange world of autism itself, the relationship between humans and animals and between different cultures and different ways of being (autistic vs. normal, or “neuro-typical”), and the nature of healing. Audiences hear the varied theories on autism from the experts in the field, well-known researchers of autism such as Dr. Simon Baron-Cohen of Cambridge University; Dr. Temple Grandin, recovered autist and professor of animal behavior at Colorado State University; and anthropologist and researcher Roy Richard Grinker of George Washington University. But above all, The Horse Boy tells the story of a couple that goes to the end of the earth to find a way into their son’s life.”

There are no advance tickets, it is first come first serve, so come early!

Performance: Homecoming Season Finale, Jul. 2 2011 @ Braeburn Theatre


Sitawa will be performing Homecoming Season Finale on

Venue: Braeburn Theatre
Location: Braeburn School off Gitanga Rd
Time: 7pm
Tickets: KShs 1000
Contacts: 0770 300 714 (for advance tickets and more info)

What others have said about the show:

Wow! I thoroughly enjoyed myself, and not only because the show tackles important issues, but because it does so in a wonderfully fresh manner, at once funny, thought-provoking, and subversive! Subversive because you’re causing us Kenyans to remember (and you know how quickly we like to sweep things under the carpet), to think/rethink, to question and to laugh at the “truths” that we believe about ourselves. Along with building superhighways, we must also build our spirit, our confidence, and our values as Kenyans, as human beings. Your performance made me very proud to be Kenyan!!-Rose Maruru
