Joburg Promusica Theatre brings 'Madiba Magic’

Joburg Promusica Theatre in Roodepoort will be donating all their revenue from their opening night production of ‘Madiba Magic’, on 10 June 2008, to Child Welfare SA to help and support children in need.

Child Welfare South Africa (CWSA) is an umbrella body that represents 171 affiliates and branches as well as developing children’s organisations in communities throughout South Africa. Together with its members it forms the largest non-profit, non-governmental organisation in the country in the fields of child protection and child and family care and development.
The Mission of Child Welfare South Africa is to promote, protect and enhance the safety, well-being and healthy development of children.

The Ambassador of Child Welfare SA, local celebrity Nataniël will open the show with one of his hit singles.

Nataniël is very well known in the arts industry and has released 11 albums, staged more than 40 original theatre productions, published 10 books and established himself as producer, director, designer, playwright and public speaker before deciding to join the plight of the children of SA. One of Nataniël’s first projects as Ambassador of Child Welfare SA was the creation of GOD BLESS THE CHILD, a brand new CD in aid of the organisation.

Joburg Promusica Theatre are proud to be able to build a relationship with Child Welfare SA. As part of our community development, we aim to help children from less privileged backgrounds to be tutored in various musical instruments to enable them with an income generating skill.

We are proud to be celebrating Nelson Mandela’s 90th birthday by honoring him with his favourite stories from his book ‘Madiba Magic’. The stage production of ‘Madiba Magic’ adapted by Hein van Zyl promises to be filled with lots of spunk, mystery and spectacle as well as an adventure through forests and rivers, meeting many different animals – and learning a few lessons and morals in the process. The fables originate from all over Africa.
Dawid Boverhoff will be producing a very unique and original musical score, just for this show. The show promises lots of audience interaction and will delight all ages.

The opening night is scheduled for 10 June 2008 at 19h30. Tickets are available from the Theatre and are priced at R120, all proceeds will be donated to Child Welfare.

The rest of the show runs from 2 till 28 June 2008. Tickets are R60 all ages. Bookings can be made at Computicket.

C'mon everyone lets support this worthy cause :)
