DUT’s annual Children’s Theatre Festival runs from September 11 to 13, 2019, and will present a double dose of fun-filled lessons and exciting tales, suitable for all ages. This year’s original work is written and directed by Lee-Anne Naicker and performed by a talented cast of first year drama students.
The show kicks off with Story-time, where siblings, Andile and Sandile come across a deliciously mischievous house while Red Riding Hood encounters a sinister wolf. Story-Time is narrated in vernacular and the delightful characters have many valuable lessons to share.

Audiences will then be enchanted by Cinderella 4.0. This techno-savvy adaptation is narrated in English by Fakespeare and his side-kick, SomChizi. Cinderella 4.0 is spiced up with semi-robotic sisters, a sparkling mobile device and sweet magical moments.

Join the Festival and see how the excitement and mayhem unfold in Story-time and Cinderella 4.0.

Shows take place as follows:
September 11: 12 noon and 18h00
September 12: 11h00 only (fully booked)
September 13: 12 noon and 18h00

Tickets R50 (R30 children). Block booking for 10 or more at R20 each. Contact details for bookings: Winnie on 031 373 2194 or Lee-Anne 031 373 2711
