The [[African Minstrels]] was a [[minstrels]] group active in Cape Town in ''circa'' 1862.
== The company ==
Consisting of eight men under the leadership of [[Colour Sergeant Heaven]], they are reported as having performed an [[Interlude]] during a performance of ''[[The Miller and his Men|The Miller and His Men]]'' and ''[[A Kiss in the Dark]]'' by officers and men from the [[11th Regiment]] in the [[Barracks Theatre]], Cape Town on Tuesday 2 December 1862.
Though it is tempting to assume otherwise in this case, the rank of "Colour Sergeant" does not mean that Heaven was from an African corps of some kind, it is in fact a specific rank of non-commissioned officer found in several armies[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colour_sergeant].
