Her most recent epic was an Asia and South Africa tour with The Sound of Music as Baroness Schraeder, fiancée of the widowed Captain von Trapp, who eventually went off with the governess, Maria.
âI was getting dumped every night,â Heyns joked.
Even having performed from the Philippines to Sri Lanka and China to Singapore, Heyns has not yet set foot in Britain.
However, sheâs been in very much of a royal, English mood since watching the recent royal wedding.
The dress she will wear at Ellis Park was inspired by the event and is designed by Durban designer Carol Clark.
While Heyns has dreams of performing in the West End, she was recently part of history in the making in Sri Lanka as part of the cast of the Andrew Lloyd Webber and David Ian production of The Sound of Music, which performed the first Broadway theatre production to be staged in the country. Like the performances in other countries, local children were used to play the parts of the Von Trapp children.
At home in Durban, Heyns and her husband, Rogan, often watch the Sharks at Kings Park.
âAnd last year I performed at the Sharks Ladiesâ Breakfast in a show, Beauty and the Beast,â she said.
What team will she support at Ellis Park next Saturday?
âThe Springboks, of course,â said Heyns whose KwaZulu-Natal roots are so deep she was the third generation of her family to attend her high school.]]>https://www.iol.co.za/ios/news/watch-kzn-songbird-haylea-to-sing-british-anthem-at-ellis-park-test-15279441" class="resultsource">Independent online (SA) 02 Jun 2018
