Little Red... Goes Down In the Woods!

Wed Apr 7, 19:30 - Sun Apr 18, 17:45
On Stage at Altitude


Durban welcomes back its 2020 Xmas Adult Panto: “Little Red… goes down in the woods!” back after Easter due to popular demand!

Based on the Little Red Riding Hood story, this new adaptation will provide much needed laughter to comedy and Adult Panto fans who have enjoyed these “pantomimes for grownups” since 1996.

‘Little Red’ is on the verge of an awakening with a rumbling in her… um, belly. She’s sent on her way to Grandma’s house with some helpful hints from ‘Mamma’ (played by Thomie Holtzhausen) and a basket full of interesting goodies. Can she withstand the advances of the Big Bad Wolf, or is it him who has to tread lightly?

Our heroine, 'Llittle Red' is played by Adult Panto panto newcomer Kirsty Ndawo. Kirsty is a seasoned performer and simply delightful on stage.

Stalwart of the circuit, Darren King, who also directed the show is delighted (and horrified) to be cast as ‘Grandma’, saying: “Me? Grandma? Never!”.

The very talented Bryan Hiles is the woodcutter 'Phil McCravis' and also acts as Narrator. The preppy and sophisticated ‘Big Bad Wolf’ is in this run played by the very funny Mpilo Nzimande who also appears as Phil McCravis' side-kick 'Pornochio'.

Thomie Holtzhausen, who also owns [email protected] where the Adult Panto has been housed for the past 5 years, wrote the hilarious script. “This intimate venue really lends itself to our kind of entertainment and we’re fortunate to be able to run the show, even at a smaller capacity” says Holtzhausen.

Performances will be limited to 50 audience members in line with Covid regulations, and the venue is sanitised before and after each performance. The show can also be booked for corporate events, with the same maximum seating capacity. ‘[email protected]’ is at 25 Silver Avenue, Greyville, and has ample safe street parking with security guards on duty.

Doors open at 6pm. A cash bar is available - you are most welcome to bring your own picnic basket/snacks.

there is also one matinee show on Sunday 11 April 2021.
