JACK AND HIS BIG STALK (article first published : 2005-10-24)

Durban's tradition of an annual adult pantomime, based on a real fairy tale, is now in its tenth highly successful year. Most recent productions have been Aladdin, Puss in Boots and Sinderella Comes Again.

The 2005 production, Jack and his Big Stalk, is written by Anthony Stonier and Peter Court who will as usual fill their usual roles of musical director and director respectively.

This year, the pantomime moves to the Catalina Theatre on Wilsonís Wharf. The management have liaised with the various restaurants at the Wharf as well as the various harbour cruisers to be able to tailormake party and block booking packages. This will allow patrons to see the panto in conjunction with either a meal at one of the fine restaurants at the Wharf or together with a harbour cruise.

"Of course patrons are welcome to enjoy the show without a meal or cruise - but with the festive season around the corner we thought the combination of the picturesque wharf and all the various facilities that it offers, and the adult panto would be a winning year-end office party or block-booking combo," says producer Sue Clarence.

Jack and his Big Stalk runs from November 1 until December 31. Tickets R75 booked through Liesl or Janice on 031 305 6889. For block booking discounts and charity fundraisers contact Debbie on 083 447 5221 or Glenda on 031 305 7612. The show runs nightly except Mondays at 20h30 (Sundays at 18h00).
