Our Programme

The Cape Town Show is the annual Rainbow Academy production that showcase and employs students as performers at the end of each year. The Cape Town Show has received glowing feedback from the public, schools and community organisations since 2010 and provides invaluable exposure for the students and the Academy.  Annually we develop new works or shows that instills in our audiences a sense of national pride for our culture and heritage, and platform to performance opportunities for our students.
