The Waterfall Park, located at the Mall of Africa, will soon be home to a seasonal extravaganza of lights, music, and local- and international talent.
This year, boredom will not reign supreme in the lives of South African families, because from November 25 until December 24, the amphitheatre will be transformed into a “wonderland” of lights and visual effects, Christmas decorations, music and a stage production that grandparents, parents and even teenagers should enjoy just as much as the smaller children.
A nine feet high set by Juan Boshoff, colourful costumes, strings of twinkling fairy lights, a giant stage, Christmas ornaments with cheerful lighting, a unique waterfall of cascading lights and a concert will all contribute towards establishing a seasonal mood.
The ambience set by the original festive music composed by the internationally acclaimed composer, Bernadette Vercellino, and music producer Brendan Jury, will create the backdrop to a humoristic fantasy with a gripping storyline and characters that will “conquer hearts from the get-go”.
Choreography by Weslee Lauder and cheerful outfits by Delene Holt, Heidi du Toit from Hollywood Costumes and Mercedes de Bruyn, will adorn legendary South African comedic actress, Lizz Meiring.
Shows of this Christmas spectacular will take place under the starry sky daily from Monday to Sunday.
Gates open at 6pm and by 8pm the expected 3000 guests will be entertained by the 70-minute show, transporting them to a “gripping wonderland”, where Cirque du Soleil meets Christmas cheer.
Tickets are available at Computicket at R120 per adult, while kids and pensioners pay R80.
