Oom Schalk live at Racine Restaurant in Franschhoek

The loveable Oom Schalk is coming to Franschhoek to delight and entertain audiences at Racine Restaurant. F Creations, in partnership with The Merry Scholar, is proud to present Oom Schalk, From the Heart and invite you to come and listen as actor David Muller transports you back in time through the words of the famous character that Herman Charles Bosman created.

Muller, directed by Celia Musikanth of Circle Productions, has been telling Bosman’s stories for several years now and always “leaves one craving more of his entertainment” (according to reviewer Beverly Brommert, Cape Argus). The set is simple, the stories classic, and the performance is captivating. Audiences will love the warm-hearted character of Oom Schalk Lourens and the charm with which his stories unfold.

The team is excited to once again be coming up to Franschhoek. Muller performed some of the Oom Schalk stories at Moreson Farm earlier in 2018, and was asked by many audience members when he would be back. This time, Muller is up at the same time as the famous Franschhoek Literary Festival, 18 – 19 May 2018, and looks forward to enjoying the festivities – when he isn’t performing, that is.


The intimate setting of Racine Restaurant is ideal for an evening of storytelling and a delicious three-course meal. The evenings will begin at 18:30, with the starter served at 19:00. Performances will start shortly after the main course has been served. There will be an interval during which guest can enjoy their dessert.
