Don’t Miss Momo’s Magical Adventure

In this story, Momo’s friends have left Johannesburg for the summer holidays to go to the sea and she’s the only one left in the big city. Time has passed by slowly, but Momo’s favourite night of the year has finally arrived− it’s Christmas Eve! 

Join Momo and her best friend – Mack the Meerkat – on a bright and colourful adventure. Follow them as they journey into a dreamy magical snow globe. Meet Sandi, the giant gingerbread man, who loves candy and all things dandy. And help Momo and Mack find Busi, the bright and wondrous butterfly, in an enchanted garden amid thickets of ivy. Prepare to be transported into Momo’s vivid and colourful imagination, where everything looks jollier at this time of year and Father Christmas flies inside a hot air balloon pulled by kudus, way up high in the highveld sky, beaming and basking in festive cheer.

The Talented Cast & Team

This heart-warming tale will be brought to life by an exceptional cast, led by Tebogo Molepo in the title role of Momo and Justin Swartz as Mack the meerkat. The talented ensemble, including Mlindeli Emmanuel, Ryan Smith, Noluthando Mathebula, Jordyn Schaefer, and Katlego Nche, will breathe life into an array of magical festive characters, including Sandi the Gingerbread man, Busi the butterfly, and beloved friends from Momo’s colourful imagination.

Momo’s Magical Adventure is being brought to the stage by an award-winning creative team. Produced by visionary Lyall Ramsden, and under the playful directorial eye of Kirsten Harris, with a musical composition by James Bassingthwaighte, the show promises to be a sensory delight. Owen Lonzar’s choreography will add a dynamic dimension to the performance with Vallery Groenewald’s imaginative design and Nerine Pienaar’s captivating costume creations, making this South African creation an unforgettable experience.
