Classic SA children’s TV show revived on stage for the festive season

‘Bangalory’s Back’ is currently lighting up the holidays at the Baxter.
This charming and delightful show, ideally suited for children aged 5 to 12, sees the return to the stage of the multi-award-winning Janice Honeyman, after decades of directing theatre. In the 1970s she became a household name in South Africa when she presented one of the very first children’s television shows, ‘Bangalory Time’, at 6.10pm on SABC on Wednesday nights, and which had many families glued to their screens.
Honeyman, along with Zoleka Helesi and Marty Kintu, has brought back the masterful art of entertainment for the young (and older), with a morning of fun story-making, merry music, comedy, puppetry and tale-telling. Add in a few silly limericks, some sweet little riddles, a dollop of dot-to-dots, jigsaw puzzles, sing-a-long and voila – ideal summer fun for the entire family.

* ‘Bangalory’s Back’ runs until January 9. Performances take place at 10am and 12pm.
Book at Computicket.
