It feels like only yesterday that I was sitting at Joburg Theatre watching Janice Honeyman's Pantomime - Jack & the Beanstalk last year! But the 2020 Panto is already lined up. With a star studded cast too!
This year, you can expect to see Cinderella on the stage of The Mandela at Joburg Theatre from October through to December. This is THE panto & is known at the fairy godmother of all pantomimes!
We all know the original story of Cinderella... But with Janice Honeyman at the helm, you know you are in for a treat with an abundance of comedy, incredible sets & hundreds of stunning costumes! The most anticipated moment in this show, is when Cinderella is transformed from rags to riches & whisked off to the ball.
Desmond Dube is back again & alongside Ben Voss they will be starring at the two Ugly Sisters. Connie Chiume, making her panto debut as the Fairy Godmother. Kiruna-Lind Devar returns to the panto, fresh from the international stage, that saw her as Meg in The Phantom of the Opera. Kyle Grant is bound to charm audiences as Prince Charming. And what is the panto, without a bit of Graham Hopkins right?
And you can already get your tickets through www.joburgtheatre.com! Best you do that ASAP, as a few of the 72 performances are already sold out!
