Take the children to the theatre this winter

So, the school holidays are driving you crazy.  Well, the children are.

One of the things you can do with your children which is fun for all of you, can be done on the coldest day, and will stimulate your children’s intellect as well.

Johannesburg has a variety of children’s theatre.

For the little ones there is Nickelodeon Dora’s Pirate Adventure at the Theatre of Marcellus at Emperor’s Palace.  This probably stops being fascinating to those in “real school”.

For four years old and up there is a show at the People’s Theatre where Disney’s Peter Pan is playing.  It was here that we chose to spend my twincesses’ sixth birthday. This work is directed by Jill Girard and Keith Smith.

George’s Marvellous Medicine is a Roald Dahl story enacted at the National Children’s Theatre in Parktown and directed by the very talented Francois Theron.  This charming theatrical piece is a delight to people of all ages.  The picture below is from George’s Marvellous Medicine.

If you haven’t watched the magic of theatre impact on your child’s face, then it is time you remedied this.

Excellent activity for primary school children and younger.
