Alex Latimer’s THE BOY WHO CRIED NINJA makes its theatrical debut this December at the Auto and General Theatre on the Square in Sandton.

In the show, Tim witnesses some strange happenings around his house, but no one believes his explanations. In fact, no matter what Tim says, his parents just punish him with chores. To save himself, he hatches a clever plan to expose the truth. Will it work, or will Tim have to spend the rest of his life raking the yard?

Bubbling with and humour from start to finish will have children and parents laughing out loud.

This magical show directed and adapted by JENINE COLLOCOTT is the perfect show for kiddies aged between 4 and 10 years old.

AIDA ABRIDGED

directed by GREG HOMANN
with CLINT LESCH, LEN-BARRY SIMONS and WESSEL ODENDAAL on the piano.

Verdi's most famous opera, often staged with a company of 200 singers, is reimagined for a talented cast of two men. The epic story of love and loyalty gets a serious downsize in this wacky and outlandish version directed by multi-award winner, Greg Homann. With inventive staging and the strong vocal talent from Clint Lesch and Len-Barry Simons, AIDA ABRIDGED is a fresh and fun take on an operatic classic.

AIDA ABRIDGED premiered on the Fringe at the National Arts Festival in 2018 where it delighted young and old audiences. The Herald Spotlight said, "This rejuvenated version of Verdi's opera is a true delight, with virtuoso performances by both leads."

Nik Rabinowitz in DRY WHITE

In Dry White, Nik Rabinowitz decided to explore the water crisis for his new show. Mostly because everyone thought the drought in Cape Town was going to last forever. Spoiler alert: it didn’t. Now Nik will be forced to discuss other stuff too, which is a good thing because he feels like Jo'burgers didn't care thaaat much about the drought anyway. Some additional topics include: love, marriage, infidelity, transphobia, staying woke post forty, and whether the land should be given back. Just kidding, what white person wants to discuss that?!
It’s gonna be a riot!
