Arctic Justice Is A Must-See This January

In the beautiful, remote Arctic village of Taigasville, a tiny fox named Swifty has big dreams of becoming a Top Dog - celebrity husky courier dogs, and town heroes, that deliver life-saving goods in the harsh and frigid tundras.

Swifty gets a job working alongside the Top Dogs at the Arctic Blast Delivery Service (ABDS). There, he becomes friends with P.B. (a thoughtful polar bear), and Lemmy (an absent-minded albatross). Swifty is just a low-ranking lever puller, but he’s determined to work his way up.

Arctic Justice

To impress his crush, Jade (a worldly red fox), Swifty steals an ABDS sled to deliver an urgent package for her to a mysterious dwelling in the middle of nowhere. After the ABDS’s strict manager, Magda, catches him boasting, she suspends Swifty from work.

Swifty is soon captured by Bertha and Leopold, two nutty conspiracy theorist otters, who recruit him to uncover some sinister plans, which seem to be connected to the Arctic’s rapidly rising temperatures. Swifty investigates and learns that the Top Dogs have abruptly quit. Pitching himself as the town’s only delivery solution, Swifty is soon back at the remote dwelling, the secret cave of Otto Von Walrus!

Arctic Justice

Otto Von Walrus is a blubbery evil genius with an adorable army of puffin assistants. Swifty stumbles upon Otto’s master plan: to drill beneath Taigasville, unleash enough ancient gas to melt the Arctic and become its ultimate ruler!

Swifty and his ragtag group of friends must band together to fight an epic battle. It’s only when Swifty embraces his natural abilities that he is able to save Taigasville—and the Arctic—from utter destruction.

Janice Honeyman's 32nd Year At The Helm

Can you believe that veteran stage director, Janice Honeyman has been behind the wheels of the annual Pantomime for 32 years? In 1987, a fresh-faced Honeyman created her first ever Panto at the Alexander Theatre in Braamfontein. Three decades on and she has just as much fun as ever bringing Joburg audiences a big-budget Christmas musical with a unique South African twist.

Honeyman presents Jack and the Beanstalk on stage at Joburg Theatre for the first time since 2012. Featuring a stellar cast, vibrant set and costumes and the year's biggest music hits, this Panto spectacular is well worth taking the kids to this holiday season. After all, what would December be without Janice Honeyman's iconic blend of song, dance and fairytale magic?

Young Blood

While the directorship behind the Pantomime is well seasoned, the young cast brings an air of frivolity and fun to the stage. Making their Panto lead debuts, Zolani Shangase (as our hero Jack The Joller) and Dezlenne Ulster-Weale (as Raspberry Rose) will have the little ones giggling in fits of laughter, gasping in awe and sighing in admiration. I must admit that the tired tale of boy meets girl, boy saves girl from hungry tyrannical giant, is a little stale. These characters nevertheless endear themselves to audiences young and old. However, their vocal prowess is somewhat outshone by the more mature cast members. But their portrayal of a young romance is sweet, nonetheless.

Other youthful standouts include Gugu Dhlamini and Ashleigh Butcher as Jack's twins sussies, Sjoepied Suzy and Sagkop Sally. Their constant references to 'Snapchat, Insta and #everything' can be tedious, but their physical performances make up for this. In fact, the entire backing cast delivered great physicality in the well choreographed dance sequences. Kiddies will love the display of acrobatics and quick-footed moves.

Panto

Golden Eggs and Golden Oldies

Before I give a round of applause to the dames and villains of this Panto, I must mention the two absolute stars of the show - Henrietta the Hen and Daisy the Cow. The clucking chicken, performed by Noni Mkhonto, had the audience in stitches of laughter. However, it was super cute Moo Daisy who won the hearts of all, including Jack the Joller. Well done on your utterly convincing performances!

Now, onto the big guns of the production. This year's Panto is truly a star-studded affair, featuring bigwigs Lelo Ramasimong, Germandt Geldenhuys, Clive Gilson and Neo Motaung as the Dames, Dudes and lovable Good Fairy. Each delivered a noteworthy performance, but the Panto crown goes to Germandt Geldenhuys this year. His portrayal of Jack's hefty mother, Mies Miemie Mosbolletjie-Melba, was outstanding. With vocals like this, he is sure to go very far in the theatre world.

Of course, I have yet to mention this year's super villain. Played by actor, comedian, writer and and radio host, Casper de Vries, Hendrink Hideoso had the children booing with complete conviction. Surprisingly, de Vries seemed uncomfortable in his role. Perhaps as the show runs he will become more accustomed to playing the 'baddie'. Nevertheless, his presence is undoubtedly a big draw card for grannies and super fans.

Panto

A Magnificent Giant

Jack and the Beanstalk was my first ever Panto experience way back in the early 2000s. While the show has adapted with the times, the set remains almost the same. The mechanical giant was as terrifying as ever, while the magical growing beanstalk had kids gasping in wonder. I must concur that the overall stage picture was one of the most vibrant Pantos in recent years. With 1980s resplendence, the costumes and disco lights create an atmosphere of celebration. This is a great way to kick off the silly season, all the while keeping the kids entertained. Go see it now!

Janice Honeyman's Jack and the Beanstalk will be staged at Joburg Theatre on the Mandela Stage until Sunday, 22 December 2019. Book your tickets here.

The NIROX Foundation has organised a spectacular day out in the NIROX Sculpture Park near the Cradle of Humakind this March. Bring the whole family along to their one-of-a-kind theatre in the park event, which will see dancers, performers and artists pay homage to the great bard, William Shakespeare.

The event will be presented in three stages across the sculpture park. To begin, a physical theatre performance entitled 'Walking Tall' will be presented in the Poplar Forest. This performance piece is sponsored by PAST - Palaeontoloigcal Scientific Trust, which aims to foster education, research and the public understanding of the sciences related to our origins. 'Walking Tall' takes the viewer on a 13.8-billion-year journey through time. It has been performed to over 1.3 million people around the world.

To follow, a series of readings of Shakespeare's sonnets will be presented on the Main Lawns. Acclaimed South African thespians David Butler and Brenda Sakellarides will perform readings of their selection from a combination of Shakespeare's tragedies and comedies.

Lastly, the National School of the Arts will perform a contemporary rendition of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. The play is set in a South African urban plastic jungle, which reflects the attitudes and the materials of our age. In a world that has become plastic and fake, just for a moment this play gives us a chance to find our imagination and to dream.

NIROX Artist in residency Gabrielle Kruger has created the set design for the play. Using solidified acrylic paint, she crafts a world of deconstructed plastic and separates her work from the meaning that is associated with landscapes and the natural environment. Lerato Lichaba and Tubatsi Moloi from The Urban Village ensemble will provide the live score for the performance. They are also currently in residence at NIROX.

The performance of A Midsummer Night's Dream will be presented in the Ampitheatre.

When Is It?
