This festive season TheatreBIZ and the Catalina Theatre at Durban’s Wilson Wharf, proudly presents the most fun to be had on a tight budget – The Credit Crunch Christmas Party.

If you’re looking for something different this year that will not break the bank, then consider having your end-of-year festivities with the hapless bunch from Joe’s Panel Beaters. Come and see how to plan and execute the festive season on no budget. Written and directed by Themi Venturas and Chantelle Snyman, this fun show will unfold as though the audience are guests at Joe’s Panel Beaters Christmas party, complete with the story, the Christmas show, the after party and fun ‘budget’ catering to suit all tastes. In fact you can bring-and-come as our communities are wont to do!

The Credit Crunch Christmas Party stars Afzal Kahn, Amy Saville, Sam Hlophe, Shona Johnson, Nhlakanipho Manqele and Lauren Rose
