A FEAST OF TALES FROM THIS YEAR’S MAGICAL STORY BOOK
One of the most beloved children’s theatres, Peoples Theatre, proudly presents another series of timeless tales, Rumpelstiltskin, The Emperors New Clothes and so many more, in this year’s magical production of Story Book Theatre on stage from Monday, 2nd – Sunday 29th September.
The Story Book Theatre series has always been extremely popular and in past years has seen sold out performances. 2019 will be no different! With great fairy tales the likes of Honest Woodcutter, Little Red Riding Hood, Brave Roaster, Tinder Box, The Princess and the Pea and Hansel and Gretel. The cast will bring this year’s Story Book Theatre classics alive through the use of engaging narration, music, movement, puppetry and, of course, exciting audience interaction.
Story Book Theatre is aimed for young audiences, generally between 3 – 10 years, and is one event Johannesburg’s youngsters should not be missing this spring. A children’s musical theatre production would be incomplete without contemporary child-friendly music, which is exactly what musical director Dale Scheepers has provided in his kaleidoscope of toe-tapping renditions of popular hit songs.
“By involving the young audience we can trigger their imaginations and give back to them an unforgettable and magical theatre experience,” Smith says.

Performance times are
- Mondays to Friday at 9am and 11am
