THE SoSuterBill site has two sets of double tickets to give away to Janice Honeyman’s lavish new pantomime, Snow White, at the Joburg Theatre in Johannesburg  – to the performance at 7.30pm on Saturday, December 1, only.

For details on how to win the tickets – note that travel and accommodation costs are NOT included in this prize – see details at the end of this story.

In 1987, at the Alexander theatre in Braamfontein, writer- director Janice Honeyman created a “pantomime” based on the classic fairytale of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Now, 31 years later, Joburg Theatre and Bernard Jay present the tale again.

Bigger and more spectacular than ever, the classic tory of Snow White is brought to life in an enchanting production complete with an all-star cast, stunning sets, beautiful costumes, breathtaking special effects – including a never-before-seen-in-South-Africa, amazing, interactive journey into the forest in 3D – and lots and lots of comedy.

“Each year Joburg Theatre audiences expect us to exceed with surprises and   to go over-the-top with spectacle,” says executive producer Bernard Jay. “Janice Honeyman and the team have been ‘shopping’ for effects around the world and I know that this production of Snow White will live up to our panto reputation in every aspect.”

South African movie, television, stage and comedy star Desmond Dube celebrates his fifth Joburg Theatre pantomime, playing the comic role of Dame Dolla Diddledaddle Doodledragon, having become one of Joburg audiences’ most loved panto stars. Dube is best known for the movies Hotel Rwanda and Hopeville, and the TV series No 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency and Suburban Bliss.

Legendary 702 talk radio show host and international champion rugby player John Robbie makes his pantomime debut in Snow White as The Major-Dumb- Ou of the Royal Palace of Cool Cornucopia.

Robbie recently retired after 30 years on 702, having built an unrivalled reputation on air for professionalism, integrity and fairness. Archbishop Desmond Tutu once told John Robbie that his show was not a radio show but a mission!

Durban comedian, actor and playwright Ben Voss, best known for his portrayal of the fictional South African businesswoman Beauty Ramapelepele, is cast as wicked Queen Hildegonda Hurl-a-lot. Vss set up the production company Mamba Productions, together with Spud author John van de Ruit, and they have produced and performed the comedy skit shows Green Mamba and Black Mamba across the country and in London.

Snow White also features two of South Africa’s most highly acclaimed rising theatre stars, Kiruna-Lind Devar (Sweet Charity, Saturday Night Fever, Evita)as the Princess and Tshepo Ncokoane (Janice Honeyman’s Sleeping Beauty, Priscilla, The Color Purple) as Prince Chuck B Charming.

Also in the all-South African cast are Oscar Buthelezi, Matt Counihan, Sne Dladla, Daniel Keith Geddes, Emil Haarhoff, Dirk Joubert, Saxola Ketshengane, Sebe Leotlela, Dolly Louw, Namisa Mdlalose, Noni Mkhonto, Sabelo Radebe, Senzesihle Radebe, J P Rossouw, Kaylan Sabbadin, Nicol Sheraton, Nkanyiso Shezi, Lindo Sithole and Sarah-Ann van der Merwe.

Snow White is written and directed by Janice Honeyman, with musical
