The Tony and Grammy Award-winning musical The Color Purple’, based on Alice Walker’s Pulitzer Prize-winning bestseller, is coming to the Joburg Theatre!  Under the expertise of acclaimed director Janice Honeyman, executive producer Bernard Jay and musical director Rowan Bakker, ‘The Color Purple‘ promises to be the highlight of the 2018 theatrical calendar.

Purple is also the colour of the global Dementia Awareness movement.  Join us for a spectacular evening in aid of Alzheimer’s South Africa, which sets up support groups and educates and trains communities in caring for those with dementia.

When it came to selecting a beneficiary for the “Go Purple” dementia awareness and fundraising campaign, we chose to support Alzheimer’s South Africa because it:

  • Is the South African representative of Alzheimer’s Disease International (ADI), the umbrella body of over 80 Alzheimer’s associations around the world
  • Has a national footprint
  • Is the only non-profit company in Gauteng exclusively dedicated to improving the quality of life of people with dementia, their families, and their carers
  • Provides an invaluable service in providing memory screening and dementia education to poorer communities
