It’s Story Time
One of the most beloved children’s theatres in the city, Peoples Theatre, presents another series of timeless tales – Rumpelstiltskin, The Emperors New Clothes and so many more – in this year’s magical production of Story Book Theatre.
Children will fall in love with their favourite bookshelf classics all over again when they experience the enchanting world of books on stage.
The Story Book Theatre series has always been extremely popular and in past years has seen sold out performances, bringing the magic of reading and books to life.
In 2019, it’ll be no different. Expect great fairy tales with the likes of Honest Woodcutter, Little Red Riding Hood, Brave Roaster, Tinder Box, The Princess and the Pea and Hansel and Gretel, all taking centre stage with a superb cast to perform them.
Actors like Nonhlanhla Mkhonto, Joelle Rochecouste, Luciano Zuppa, Katlego Nche and introducing Raymond Skinner will breathe life into these stories. They are all professional performers that are highly proficient in musical theatre and have appeared in numerous Peoples Theatre shows.
The cast will bring Story Book Theatre classics alive through engaging narration, music, movement, puppetry and, of course, exciting audience interaction.
And no unforgettable children’s musical theatre production would be complete without contemporary child-friendly music, which is what musical director Dale Scheepers has provided in his kaleidoscope of toe-tapping renditions of popular hit songs.
Providing the colour and breathing vibrant life into the stories is the stunning set design by Grant Knottenbelt and glorious fun costumes by Merry Whillier.
Story Book Theatre is aimed for young audiences, generally between 3 – 10 years, and is a show youngsters shouldn’t miss.
