It’s still winter and many people might still be planning a visit to the Matroosberg for fun in what remains of the snow, but if your time and money are limited, Krazy Katz in conjuction with Artscape Theatre offers an alternative: the children’s production ‘Vlooi en die Sneeuman/Kipper and the Snowman’.
Kipper and his sister Biff are on a hiking weekend in the Drakensberg with their neighbours Wilma and Wilf. The first snow of the season fall and the kids build a snowman. Then the magic key starts to glow and a brand new adventure starts which take them all the way to the South pole.
When Kipper stands on the Antarctic continent, the thought of global warming (or anything warm) is very far removed, but soon they found out how serious this problem really is, not just for the North and South poles, but for the whole of Mother Earth. Kipper and his friends learn valuable lessons, with the help of two king penguins, Polka and Perry, and how simple it is for everyone to make a difference.
Directed and written by theatre professionals Marinda Engelbrecht and Margit Meyer- Rodenbeck respectively, and featuring music by Emile Minnie, the production stars such celebrated actors as Crystal Donna Roberts, Dean Balie, Elanza Swart, Karli Heine and Kyle Seconna.
There is a public show scheduled for September 3 at 11am, but the public is also welcome to attend the schools shows on Thursday and Friday, August 25 and 26, at 9.30am and 11am (English); and from August 29 to September 2, at 9.30am and 11am (Afrikaans).
