The 5th Annual Umbhiyozo- Everything Christmas
Presented by Ubom! Eastern Cape Drama Company and Grahamstown Foundation

The 29th November is a day worth diarising!  Ubom! Eastern Cape Drama Company and the Grahamstown Foundation present to you the 5th annual UMBHIYOZO- Everything Christmas event. Bring your family and friends and enjoy Grahamstown’s finest talent - the adorable Amaphiko Township Dancers who recently won a Platinum Impumelelo Ovation award, OddbodyTheatre’sPhezulu Stilt walkers and the Rhodes Vocal Ensemble.

On the director’s chair for this year’s Ubom! Christmas show is 2010 Rolex Protégé nominee, Rob Murray who brings his incredible talents to the creation of iKrismesi Eposini - a comic and heart-warming tale of the true spirit of Christmas.

The professional Ubom! company of actors, with their inimitable high energy and physical high-jinks, team up with a gifted group of local community Rhini performers . This dynamic collaboration  of talented performers bring to you the moving but delightfully funny story of a small postal community which is forced to work together in the face of  seemingly insurmountable odds!

The suspense is almost unbearable – where are the children’s letters to Santa? Will the postal workers put their differences aside and come up with a plan? Are the Christmas lights ever going to sparkle again? Is it finally the end of Christmas as we know it? Join us at iKrismesi Eposini to help us save the day!
