Bringing Little People To The Theatre
The People’s Theatre in Braamfontein has been bringing world-class children’s theatre to the stage for over 20 years, spearheaded by theatre and television veterans, Keith Smith and Jill Girard. The People’s Theatre produces four full productions each year, often bringing classic fairy tales to life. While their theatre is geared for children aged 3 – 12, The People’s Theatre also keeps parents and older siblings in mind. Providing a fantastic experience for young and old, this tiny theatre on a hill is vital to introducing children to the arts.
The People’s Theatre works in close association with schools across Johannesburg. Nearly 80% of their audiences who come to see a show with their school would not have otherwise been exposed to theatre. Welcoming in children from diverse backgrounds and socio-economic experiences, the People’s Theatre opens up a world of magic and wonder to all.
Taking your child to the theatre for the first time can be an incredible bonding experience. Watching their face as the story unfolds just metres away is pure joy. Why not take some time out of this busy holiday season and treat the kids to a day out at the People’s Theatre? From Monday, 28 October to Sunday, 22 December, the theatre presents Chitty Chitty Bang Bang JR! This fantastic musical adventure is based on the classic film and Ian Flemming’s book of the same name. Come and witness the delight of Jeremy and Jemima Potts, as they discover an old race car that has the ability to take flight and sail across the sea! The unforgettable score by the Sherman Brothers will be brought to life by a talented young cast. Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Jr is the ultimate family-fun adventure. Book your tickets now to avoid missing out!
