Grimaldi's Theatre Hall

The Steytlerville Follies Dinner Show

Every Saturday night the Karroo Theatrical Hotel presents an incomparable extravaganza of audio, culinary and visual delight.


The evening’s excitement begins in Oscar’s Bar or on the stoep (verandah) when sundown cocktails and canapes are served. Dinner is announced (rather dramatically ...) by the sounding of an old-style dinner gong upon which guests, not knowing what to really expect, proceed with curiosity to the intimate Grimaldi’s Theatre Hall where they are ushered to their designated, superbly adorned tables. Starters are served, followed by an exceptional xylophone-alike musical interlude, this time using a novel set of musical bottles.

The main course consists of wholesome Karoo fare – roast leg of lamb with mint, accompanied with glazed baby carrots, broccoli in a white sauce and yellow rice.


A brief interval precedes the show.


The Steytlerville Follies is a captivating and enthralling cabaret show starring the famous Karoo diva, Dame Leyla Lamborghini performing her dramatic renditions of great songs of yesteryear, presented by maestro Freddy Ferrari with his mastery of the grand piano. Outrageously funny to nostalgic, reflective, and even sad – you’re in for a roller coaster ride of human emotion.

The show duration is approximately an hour and the evening is rounded off with delectable desert and an assortment of cheeses, Cape Ruby and freshly brewed coffee.


This iconic show which is frequently applauded in die media has become an institution in the Eastern Cape’s weekend getaway routine, drawing audiences from nearby and afar.
