So I am back from foreign lands… and before I dive into the world of blogging and life on social media I am spending this week chilling with my gang and spending time with my kids. Doing important things like catching up with household chores (ho hum); sharing galactic ice-creams…
And taking in a show…
Snow White And The Se7en Dwarfs at Canal Walk
It is the last week of school holidays over here and there are heaps of good things going on all over Cape Town for kids… we headed for Canal Walk and our first musical ever. I know don’t ask what I have been doing with my kids all these years – but going to an actual live show hasn’t been done before… I think they might have been a little excited.
There was a lot of anticipation… and they had no idea what to expect… but they knew it would be good.
The setting: A wild wild forest, the se7en dwarfs’ cosy cottage and of course, the wicked stepmother’s castle. The cast of characters: A beautiful Snow White, nearly steals the show from the se7en dwarves, and of course the wicked step mother’s plans are thwarted by a dashing prince. There is high drama and suspense, impending disaster and a happy ending. It was short and sweet, about hour long and my gang have decided that there should be much more of this sort of thing in their lives.
The facts: Snow White and the Se7en Dwarfs will be on in Canal Walk, until the 19 July 2015. Shows are at 11, 12 and 2 pm. And you can follow this link for more of the story and how to book. Proceeds from the show go to the Stop Hunger Now Charity.
Thank you so much to Hippo Communications and Canal Walk Shopping Centre for the tickets to the show. This is not a sponsored post and the opinions expressed are as usual, entirely our own.

How fun! My boys have never seen a live show, either. And that ice cream looks enormously fun – perfect for sharing!
Mine have also not been to anything like this but we did try a panto one year. First half was great then fidgeting through most of the second half 🙂
welcome back from your epic adventure!! This show looks like fun 🙂
Welcome back, and hope you have a great week back with your people. Looking forward to hearing about it!
Cant wait to catch up and hear about your adventure!
Hay Christi, Yup… it was a bit of a coming home surprise for my gang… and seriously ice-cream makes the world go round!!! Hope you all have a great week!!!
Hay Marcia, this was very short… about an hour tops. I have to say the entire audience was pretty intrigued with the whole show… could have dropped a pin!!! Sending love to you all!!!
Thanks Irene, It was epic indeed… it has been good to just rest up with them and now we are good to go and ready to launch again. Hope you have a fabulous week!!!
Hay Corli, it is so good to be home and it has been fabulous to catch up with my gang!!! There are certain people over here who are counting the days!!! Sending love to you all!!!
Thanks Tammy, It was an adventure indeed… and good to be home again. You all take care and have a good week!!!
There’s a first time for everything:)
One hour seems like a perfect time especially as kids tend to have a short attention span. I’ve found the best are the ones that also involve audience participation
Hay Mrs FF, One hour was enough… Long enough for everyone to stay interested and for the story to be told!!! Hope you have had a great weekend!!!
