ZOEMBA A musical theatre production for children

There is much excitement as an original new S.A. musical theatre production for children, prepares for its run at the Auto & General Theatre on the Square in Sandton...

ZOEMBA, written and conceived by CONNIE FRIEDMANN, will run from the 26th June to the 7thJuly. Its storyline addresses real environmental issues experienced by Zoemba the rhino and his friends. Suspense-filled interactive stories, stunning music, sing-a-long songs, audience participation and energetic dancing is just part of the fun-filled holiday package.

ZOEMBA too has wonderful messages for our young people, making them aware of our precious rhinos, recycling, conservation and friendships.

Enter the magical journey of Zoemba the Rhino. He lives in a game reserve with his two friends, Jippie and Doolie. Zoemba is a very unique rhino, he has two rainbow horns and loves music and dancing. Those very unique horns appeal to a sneaky poacher that is lurking in the park, and waits for the right opportunity to try steal Zoemba’s horns. Come and join us to find out if the poacher is able to capture Zoemba, and if Jippie and Doolie can help Zoemba out of trouble, every time. The show deals with issues that affect Zoemba’s life from poaching to pollution.

Sandton’s Auto & General Theatre on the Square by arrangement with CK Productions, proudly presents this cool new musical theatre production for kids from 2 – 8 years old. It’s an exciting tale that will have them in suspense until the end – screaming with laughter, boo’ing the poacher off the stage, whilst singing and dancing along to the energetic, catchy original musical score. The production is directed by BRONWYN EVANS and choreographed by JOUBERT JONKER.

The show stars Zoemba, Matatho Mampa, and Pieter Erasmus. Come and join us and see the world through Zoemba’s eyes. Come and have fun and get involved with Zoemba’s plight. There is something in it for the older brothers and sisters as well as parents and grandparents!

ZOEMBA runs from the 26th June for two weeks only. There are performances daily from Tuesdays to Saturdays at 3pm as well as 11am shows on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
