THEATRES are slowly opening again after many months of thrashing from endless Covid-19 restrictions – and great news is that The Christmas Show, a glittering spectacle by Mzansi Ballet and vocalists, is to run from November 17 to December 5 at Johannesburg’s Pieter Toerien Theatre at Montecasino.

Even better news is that SoSuterBill.com is offering one lucky follower free tickets for two to attend the performance of the production at 7pm on Saturday, November 20. For details on how to be a winner see the end of this post.

The Christmas Show is said to celebrate a modern-day Christmas and is described as an entertainment for the entire family. It features some of the most loved Christmas classics as well as contemporary festive season hits such as Holly Jolly Christmas, Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer and many more.

The production also highlights extracts from famous Christmas ballets – such as the snow scene from The Nutcracker – and more contemporary items choreographed by the husband-and-wife team of Michael and Angela Revie, who presented the popular The Queen Show.

Joining the Revies in choreographing is Xola Willie from the Eastern Cape. Both Michael Revie (former principal dancer with Birmingham Royal Ballet and South African Ballet Theatre) and Xola Willie (who had a successful stint as a dancer on cruise ships) also dance in the show.

The Christmas Show also features Johannesburg-based dancers Allison Sischy and Veronica Louw, both known for their work in The Queen Show, and Aviwe November, a prominent dancer on the contemporary dance circuit. 

The show’s vocalists are Dikelo Mamiala and Abel Knobel (who is with boy band NRG, plays Brummer on TV’s 7de Laan and was a finalist on the first season of The Voice SA).

NOTE: Performances of The Christmas Show are scheduled for 7pm Wednesdays to Fridays, 3pm and 7pm on Saturdays, and 3pm on Sundays.Tickets cost R250 and booking is at Computicket or the theatre box-office.
