BEAUTY AND THE BEAST (article first published : 1999-10-22)

The highly talented and dynamic theatrical trio, Peter Court, Greg King and Phillipa Savage collectively known as “Creative Madness” are reviving their delightful inaugural production of Beauty and the Beast for a limited run in November, prior to the school holidays. Special morning performances for schools will be held at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre from November 23 to 26 at 09h00 and again at 11h00.

The children’s classical tale, devised by Peter Court, was staged at the Kwasuka Theatre in 1997, and was voted Best Children’s Show of 1997 by the Natal Mercury. In 1998 it was voted Best Show at the annual Kaleidoscope National Children’s Festival in Rustenberg. Creative Madness had further successes at this year’s Grahamstown Festival, receiving rave reviews and proclaimed one of the highlights of the 1999 festival.

A unique combination of theatrical elements, incorporating puppetry, live acting, masks, mime and fairy-tale music (composed by Anthony Stonier), are cleverly interwoven, creating a stunningly visual and strikingly original piece of theatre. This enchanting show will appeal to pupils of all ages. Because of the limited number of performances schools are urged to make block bookings as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. Please contact Jackie Harris on 266-0008.
