Adult Panto 2013
Romeo and Juliet- an East Coast Story
The Zone Suncoast Casino: 12 November – 31 December
The long-standing theatrical tradition of the saucy festive season adult panto continues – this time the team tip their hat to the greatest love story ever told, Romeo and Juliet, which will play at The Zone Suncoast from 12 November until 31 December.... except this version is probably not quite what Shakespeare had in mind...
It has long been a tradition in Durban to celebrate the festive season with a trip to the naughty adult pantomime: a well-known story with a decidedly grown up twist, a smorgasbord of well-known, sing along songs; saucy ensembles; boisterous fun and a fair amount of risqué one-liners. This year it’s one of the world’s most well-known stories “ Romeo and Juliet- an East Coast Story” … and needless to say, nothing is sacred. Scripted, directed and choreographed by Darren King.
Booking through Computicket. Block bookings, party groups and enquiries – contact Ailsa on 083 250 2690 / firstname.lastname@example.org.
Shows are Tues – Sat at 7.30pm; Sundays at 2pm. Tickets are R150 per person. Doors open 90 minutes before for diners. There will be a full bar available. Tables seat 8 people – so book a whole table, or make new friends! For corporate bookings of 26 tables or more -buffet menus on request.
