Calling kids of all ages! Multi-award winning director and South Africa’s “queen of the pantomime”, Janice Honeyman is back with this season’s pantomime – Jack and The Beanstalk, which is now on stage at The Joburg Theatre until 22nd December 2019!

Join in all the fun with the story of poor country boy Jack, the family cow, the magic beans, the enormous beanstalk, the unfriendly giant and the enchanted hen that lays the golden eggs. Adding the giant’s henchman – a truly evil panto villain – and the essential good fairy to the tale, audiences will be taken on a spectacular journey with Jack the Joller as the courageous hero.

I am delighted to have a set of 4 family tickets to give away to see the show this Friday 22nd November at 19.30 at The Joburg Theatre!

Not seen on The Mandela stage since 2012, this ever-popular pantomime story traditionally sets good against evil and is jam-packed full of Honeyman’s wit, double-entendres, charm and magic. And, as always with Joburg Theatre’s pantomimes, the creative team has a few big surprises in store!

Making his pantomime debut as the villain Hendrik Hideosa is actor, comedian, writer, radio and TV host, director and painter Casper de Vries. Returning to Joburg Theatre after her triumphant success in the role of Shug Avery in The Color Purple is Lelo Ramasimong as the good fairy Gorgeous Gugu. The role of Jack the Joller also brings back multi-talented young actor Zolani Shangase to the Joburg Theatre stage.

To stand a chance to win this set of tickets for Friday 22nd November at 19.30 make sure to comment below and let me know one of the fun names of the characters in the pantomime. Competition closes at midnight on Wednesday 20th November and the winner will be contacted via email on Thursday 21st November.

Tickets are not transferrable, and cannot be exchanged for cash.
