Frans Swart, Managing Director of Lefra Communication and Marketing, says he is very excited that Ms Winner has agreed to be in this year's CHRISTMAS SPECTACULAR. “Lefra did a wonderful tour with Dana Winner 10 years ago. We did 25 shows in 30 days – all of them sold out! She is definitely one of the most talented singers in the world, and we are privileged to welcome her to South Africa again. And all the more so with the cream of more than 17 South African musicians on one stage.”
Dana Winner says she cannot wait to see all her South African fans and friends again. “Through the years, South Africa has been such an important part of my career and personal life. You have always had such a special place in my heart. That's why I can't wait to sing for all South Africans in this special Christmas Concert. I was so happy when Frans Swart approached me to be the guest artist at the CHRISTMAS PAGEANT and I am really looking forward to sharing the stage with all your wonderfully talented South African singers ... what a privilege!”
Dana Winner will be sharing the CHRISTMAS SPECTACULAR/ KERSFEES SKOUSPEL stage with more than 17 top artists in the true Boney M style of Christmas concerts. Jaconell Mouton of Noot vir Noot fame is the musical director and Frans Swart, who is known as the director of all the hilarious farces like MY VROU SE MAN SE MANNETJIE, is the director, with a full orchestra.

Dana is currently touring Belgium and Holland, and is looking forward to her show in celebration of her 30 year long career in the Lotto Arena in Antwerp, Belgium, next year.
Producer Frans Swart says he is very excited about the strong team of singers and musicians who will be performing in the CHRISTMAS PAGEANT. “Through the years, the CHRISTMAS SPECTACULAR/ KERSFEES SKOUSPEL has always been a spectacle of sound, colour, costumes, music and song – and definitely a spectacle of Christmas music! Christmas is such a wonderful time focused on the celebration of Jesus' birth, and it is such a privilege to present this production just before Christmas. Sir Cliff Richard's Christmas Song, MISTLETOE AND WINE, summarises it so well when he sings The Child is a King ... and particularly the words:
A time to rejoice in the good that we see
A time for living, a time for believing
A time for trusting, no deceiving.
Love and laughter
and joy ever after
Ours for the taking
Just follow the Master!
"And this is exactly what the CHRISTMAS SPECTACULAR/ KERSFEES SKOUSPEL wants to achieve", Swart said. “We invite all our people to come and celebrate Christmas with these wonderful artists and the most beautiful Christmas music that has ever been written. And yes, MISTLETOE AND WINE will definitely be on the programme – naturally!”
According to Jaconell Mouton, Musical Director, working on every year's CHRISTMAS SPECTACULAR/ KERSFEES SKOUSPEL is always a thrill. “Every year we have new artists who bring a totally new dynamic to the production. Artists sing duets together, there are lovely group songs ... but let me not say too much and spoil the many surprises awaiting our audiences!”
