Jacaranda FM and Joburg Theatre are giving you the chance to spend some time with your family, watching everyone’s favourite giant in 'Jack And The Beanstalk'!

Jack and the Beanstalk is presented by Joburg Theatre and Bernard Jay, in association with MNET, Jacaranda FM 94.2, Your Family, and Mail & Guardian.  

The season runs from November 2nd to December 22nd 2019. Tickets are now on sale from R225, with fantastic group discounts available.

The 2019 pantomime is written and directed by Janice Honeyman, with actors including Hendrik Hideosa, Casper de Vries, Shug Avery, Lelo Ramasimong, Gorgeous Gugu, and Zolani Shangase as 'Jack the Joller'.


In her inimitable style, acclaimed writer, director, and South Africa’s queen of pantomime Janice Honeyman brings a South African twist to the classic Jack and the Beanstalk.

The story is of poor country boy Jack, the family cow, the magic beans, the enormous beanstalk, the unfriendly giant, and the enchanted goose that lays golden eggs!

Throw in a truly evil villain, played in his panto debut by famed comedian Casper de Vries, and the essential good fairy, played by star songstress Lelo Ramasimong, 'Jack and The Beanstalk' will have audiences in awe at Jack’s madcap efforts to be courageous and the show’s bigger-than-ever-before sheer spectacle.
