To celebrate 100 years of Madiba, National Children’s Theatre brings to the stage an original production of one of Chris van Wyk's last stories, Mr Hare Meets Mr Mandela.

Mr Hare Meets Mr Mandela is a tale about bravery and persistence, as well as the significance of being literate, something dear to late uTata's heart.

Warm your hearts this winter with the not-often-heard tale of how Mr Hare takes on the biggest lostand-found adventure. Mr Hare finds a R200 note - and of course it belongs to Mr Mandela because it has his face on it or so illiterate Mr Hare thinks! So Mr Hare sets off to return it to its rightful owner!

With a brand new script, joyful music, characters a plenty, as well as stunning shadow puppetry, the show promises to be fun for the whole family, as well as teaching children the many wonders of stories, and being able to read them. The moral of the story is that if we do not learn from our experiences, we are bound to repeat them - and poor Mr Hare believes it is fine to be illiterate!

Take a trip to National Children’s Theatre (NCT) as they perform an original musical adaptation of the well-known, well loved, and classic Robert Browning poem The Pied Piper of Hamelin town.

It is the story of the arrogant politician Mr Mayor who really doesn’t care about the town and the hard working people who live and work there. He is a greedy man who earns a ridiculously high salary which he spends on overseas trips, golfing and beautiful things. He is a tyrant - but meets his match when in desperation he hires a strange Piper to rid the town of rats. Unfortunately for him, he doesn’t want to pay the Piper for his services. See the show and find out how the Piper retaliates. Tell a friend.
