Pinocchio the pantomime opens with a dream cast

The 2017 reimagining of this popular tale is packed with fresh jokes and references but remains true to the soul of the original story. About an old woodcarver who creates a puppet which he wishes was a real boy. To fulfil this dream, a blue fairy brings Pinocchio to life and tells him he must first prove himself brave, truthful and unselfish. So, begins a wonderful journey.

 In theatre tradition, a female plays the ‘principal boy’ in a company and Kanyi Nokwe has taken to it like the role of her life. The daughter of a famously musical family, she found the toughest demands to be physical.

Andre Schwartz makes a fiendishly good fox and while his thousands of music fans know him as a recording artist with a career spanning fifteen albums, his heart belongs to the stage.

Playing the other character who tries to tempt Pinocchio down the wrong path is star of Generations The Legacy – Chi Mhende.

With the first Pinocchio panto, eight years ago, being Janice Honeyman’s most successful, this one has sold thirty thousand tickets already.

Pinocchio runs on The Mandela stage of the Jo’burg Theatre until December 30th.
