Brought to you in collaboration with Ramaine Barrerio-Lloyd Productions, AmaZink Live Season 3 is a magical and vibrant proudly South African musical. This culturally authentic performance encourages audience interaction and a chorus of entertaining artists creates a truly memorable and fun experience for all. The AmaZink Live story originated two seasons ago. The venue started out as an unlicensed tavern called Patricia’s Tavern, which was nearly demolished, but was eventually saved, licensed and renamed AmaZink Live.
The following year more drama unfolded as tavern manager Miss Patricia Jones, her cousin Fix Marwana and owner Musa Mavundla fought for the survival of the place and subsequently achieved both fame and fortune as the Kayamandi All Stars stepped into the limelight.
This year Patricia, Fix and Musa return to their ‘home sweet home’ from a performing tour overseas. Hailed as local celebrities, they are quizzed on their highlights, memorable moments and reasons for coming back to AmaZink Live. Patricia receives a phone call: an offer to move to France permanently and perform in a world-class theatre. Will she choose to leave her beloved ‘home sweet home’ for the allure of the glitzy and glamorous Paris…?
The terrifically tumultuous South African journey resonates through our music as melodious mementos of hope, courage, peace and an unbridled zest for life. AmaZink Live Season 3 is a musical adventure inspired by fire.
