Energetic and compelling new stage show Madiba the Musical celebrates the life of the former South African leader who would have turned 100 in July this year. The musical is interwoven with stories of the fight against apartheid and forbidden love in a troubled land.

Australian producer Neil Croker said an exciting line up of talented singers, actors and dancers for Madiba the Musical has been assembled with the role of Nelson Mandela being played by Perci Moeketsi who was recently announced following an international search.

From a very humble background where a career in the arts was considered nothing but a hobby for a black child, Perci says he’s pinching himself that he’ll soon be portraying his hero and on an international platform.

The South African star of stage, television and film, Perci Moeketsi, dared to dream the impossible, encouraged by Mandela’s own words: “It is impossible until it’s done”.

‘It is beyond a dream come true’, beams the triple threat from Pretoria, the South African city where Mandela was both imprisoned and later inaugurated as President - so fitting that a star from this area is chosen for the pivotal role.

Neil Crocker said, "Madiba the Musical is a production with both a fantastic and moving story, and some truly fabulous and joyous music and dance. This cast we have assembled of such authentic and talented actors, singers and dancers will deliver to audiences a memorable night of informative, challenging and uplifting theatre."

The Australian tour marks the first English language production of Madiba the Musical following acclaimed performances in France, Northern Africa and the West Indies.
