Kick off the December holiday fun at the Playhouse with an authentic African magical experience this festive season.

The Playhouse Company’s Actors Studio and Playhouse Dance Residency are about to journey into the wonderful world of storytelling. Directed by Warona Seane, Our Story Magic is a collection of stories set in a mystical African garden. With dance, song and storytelling, some of Dr Gcina Mhlophe’s African folk stories will be brought to life.
