These boots are made for changing perspectives

Earl Gregory and Darren Craig in Kinky Boots.

The musical Kinky Boots will run at the Fugard Theatre from Tuesday June 11.

Inspired by true events, Kinky Boots was first brought to life on the big screen in 2005 before being transformed into a hit musical, winning six Tony and three Olivier Awards.

The production features a Tony-winning score by Cyndi Lauper.

Charlie Price has reluctantly inherited his father’s shoe factory, Price & Son, which is on the verge of bankruptcy. Trying to live up to his father’s legacy and save his family business, Charlie finds inspiration in the form of Lola, a fabulous entertainer in need of some sturdy stilettos. As they work to turn the factory around, this unlikely pair find that they have more in common than they ever dreamed possible, and discover that when you change your mind about someone, you can change your whole world.

In the role of shoe factory owner Charlie Price is Darren Craig with Earl Gregory stepping in to the role of drag queen Lola.

Tickets cost from R160 and can be booked directly through the Fugard Theatre box office on 021 461 4554.

The show has a recommended age restriction of 10 years old.
