3. Puss in Boots
From the producer of Shrek The Musical and twelve sold-out award winning pantomimes, KickstArt Theatre brings you Puss in Boots, a swashbuckling spectacular for the whole family. Live on The Lyric stage at Gold Reef City from Friday, 30 June until Sunday, 23 July 2017, this rendition of Puss in Boots is a variation of the original tale.
Set on a mystical, magical Caribbean island, Puss in Boots is a laugh-a-minute and features great audience participation, breath-taking sets, gorgeous costumes and toe-tapping tunes sure to enthral both young and old. Starring everybody’s favourite famous feline in footwear, along with a host of fabulous new characters, Puss in Boots offers the best in family entertainment available in Joburg this winter holiday.
Written and directed by Steven Stead and designed by Greg King, the story of Puss in Boots is brought to life by a stellar cast – Earl Gregory as the booted hero; Ilse Klink as the good fairy Calypso Honeybunch; Michael Richard playing the evil shape-shifting goblin wizard, Grimbsy Withergood; Sean John Louw as the hapless miller’s son, Tom Marzipan; Darren King as Mother Merry Marzipan; and Zak Hendrikz, Londiwe Dhlomo-Dhlamini, Yamikani Mahaka-Phiri and Caitlin Kilburn as some of Puss’ friends. This extravagant stage production is choreographed by Janine Bennewith, with lighting by theatre veteran Denis Hutchinson and under the musical direction of Rowan Bakker.
“Following the resounding success of Shrek The Musical, we are excited to bring this legendary pantomime to Gold Reef City,” says Noeleen Bruton, Director of Marketing for Tsogo Sun. “It’s an enchanting winter pantomime to be enjoyed these holidays by the entire family, not just the kids.”
Bruton continues, “We are also delighted upon hearing the recent news of KickstArt Theatre’s ten well deserved Naledi nominations for Shrek The Musical. Staging another all-star cast of highly experienced panto performers lead by Steven Stead and his production team was an easy decision for us.”
