American Director PETER FLYNN spearheads original South African musical CALLING US HOME in preparation for international tour
A new day is dawning for this exciting South African/American collaboration, ahead of cast auditions for South African artists – info available from Friday 29th October.
Shy Music, producers of Calling Us Home, are proud to announce that acclaimed American Director, Peter Flynn, has joined their Creative Team as Director of their original grand-scale musical opera, to prepare the show for international touring in 2023.
Peter will be travelling from his home in New York to Cape Town, to lead the Creative Team – which will be a hybrid of South African and American creatives – as rehearsals begin in Cape Town in January 2023.
A short season will be staged in Cape Town in February 2023 before the cast head out for the international tour. The Calling Us Home cast will be a fusion of local and international talent, with Shy Music intending to create as many opportunities for South African artists and talent as possible.
