Question & Answer

Where can I find a list of the shows at Evita se Perron ?

Just pop onto the page that suits you best –

  1. The Short range view (45 days), displayed on the home page
  2. A long range view is also available at – programme of all scheduled shows
  3. A Monthly Calendar view is also available at – Calendar view

A caveat about the Calendar view (no. 3). It is excellent on a PC or Laptop, but it does not display well on Mobile devices. Mobile devices work very well with the Upcoming events views adopted on the Home page (no.1) and Full List (no.2) views. The rationale behind the decision to provide multiple views of Events is to ensure that PC users and Mobile users have a view that suits their device and preference.

When was Evita se Perron established ?

Evita History
The station building dates back to 1903…

After Pieter‑Dirk Uys had moved to Darling from Cape Town he became aware that the old station building in Arcadia Road was empty. The station had closed in the 1970s. When Uys, already settled in his house up the road, was asked if, to hold off the demolishers,  he could perhaps use the building as a storeroom, the dormant idea of having his own theatre was rekindled in his imagination. And so, in 1996, the old station building stepped into the pages of the unique and became reincarnated as Evita se Perron. Inspired by the legends of Argentina´s Evita Peron and our own Evita Bezuidenhout, this was the ideal place for a theatre.

Besides, the word perron is Afrikaans for station platform!
