I still remember my very first kids theatre experience. I was four years old and will never forget the feeling of anticipation I felt sitting in a “proper grown-up” chair at the theatre, waiting for the curtains to open. I may not remember much about the actual show (it was Annie – The Musical), but I vividly recall the very first scene and being completely swept away by the characters.
My parents, despite never having much disposal income, always made sure that their three daughters went to the theatre as often as possible. We attended many ballet productions and quickly came to anticipate Janice Honeyman’s annual pantomime. It’s a tradition that we now continue with our own families, and we love experiencing theatre through the eyes of our children.
Here are the TOP SEVEN SHOWS we recommend in the next few months – and deeply suspect that parents will enjoy the shows just as much as their children!

Oscar Wilde’s charming morality tale of the Selfish Giant is brought to life by the young and talented dancers of the Johannesburg Youth Ballet.

Once the wall is up, it becomes wintry in his garden because no other season dares to enter a place where no children are allowed to play. But one morning, a very special child brings Spring back into the garden, as well as love into the Giant’s cold heart. This show is perfect for all ages.
