During the month of May, Emperors Palace will be offering only the best in family entertainment, so you can spend some quality time with your loved ones. From a beloved fairytale retold at the Theatre of Marcellus to a festival offering visitors a sensory delight, there is certainly something to thrill both young and old.
Sneeuwitjie - Fun For The Whole Family
The famous fairytale comes to life as a brand new Afrikaans pantomime, on stage at the Theatre of Marcellus. Fresh on the heels of the sensational Aspoestertjie (Cinderella), Sneeuwitjie promises to be a highlight of Afrikaans theatre this year. The production boasts big names in the South African entertainment industry, both on and off the stage. The talented Nadine stars as the beautiful Snow White and legendary Angela Kilian embodies the evil Queen! Reynard Slabbert takes the leap from TV to join the cast as the knightly Prince, while comedy favourites Tiaan Rautenbach and Clint Lesch add sparkling wit and humour to the delight of kids and grown-ups alike!
