WORLD PREMIÈRE PRODUCTION OF

A story of hope. A story of love. A story of home.

OPENING 17 AUGUST 2017

 

#CallingMeHomeMusical

Calling Me Home is an epic story that moves from the plains of Africa to the concrete jungle of a great American metropolis. Grace, a young woman, flees her war torn home to find a new life amongst a group of migrants who, like her, have sought shelter here. She falls in love with Rafael and her life becomes part of the hopes and fears of her new community, in particular of Rafael’s beautiful but troubled sister Isabella, their friend Ben and the courageous Lindiwe. The community must defend itself from Ivan, a ruthless gang lord and tragedy strikes as evil, courage and hope battle it out and Grace ultimately discovers the true meaning of ‘home.’

“The style of the music, the words and the entire concept blew me away and I have every reason to believe that this is a potential hit show…I was hooked from the first song I heard – epic, sophisticated, heartfelt and sincere are words that spring to mind.”

Rodney Trudgeon, Fine Music Radio

 

“This is a story that will not only resonate with South Africans, but to the world at large and we are confident that the production has all the critical musical and storytelling components needed to ensure its worldwide success.”

Rowlin Naicker, Managing Director – Sony / ATV South Africa
