The Bread, The Porridge and The Mix Masala

The Bread, The Porridge and The Mix Masala

Two performances only next weekend! Join the Melanie Kisten Dance Academy as it celebrates 21 years in the entertainment industry with new comedy – The Bread, The Porridge and The Mix Masala. This fun entertainment plays at Sibaya Casino’s iZulu Theatre on Saturday 21 October 2017 at 6pm and on Sunday 22 October at 3pm.

This theatrical fusion of comedy, dance and music is written, directed and produced by Melanie Kisten, who previously staged the hit production, Kambakht ISHQ.

‘This new work is another twist with a different tale,’ says Kisten. ‘And while it focuses on expressing the hardships of marriage, family and betrayal, it is laced with comedy that, in a whacky yet interesting way, is geared to leave audiences in stitches.’

The light-hearted story touches on one family’s feuds; as well as their corruption, gambling, drinking, terrifying mother-in-law, and an unfortunate death. Stir well to 90 degrees, simmer down – and the result is a mixed masala!’

The production features Kisten, who is now known as the ‘crab aunty’ in the local movie, Keeping Up with The Kandasamys; and also stars her dynamic team of performers: Desiree Kisten, Marsha Kisten, Thiru Reddy, Keelan Govender, Kubeshan Naidoo, Leshna Nair, Aliosha Nair, Sagy Kisten and Bhavanie Kisten.

‘Audiences can expect a rollercoaster ride of emotions, be enthralled by the high energy, and the emotionally charged dance sequences by the students of my dance academy,’ says Kisten.

Tickets for The Bread, The Porridge and The Mix Masala, available via Computicket, are R120 per person. For phone bookings call 0861 915 8000 or book online at
