SNOW – The Musical

Curro Durbanville was proud to present Snow – The Musical during the third term of 2016. Based on the popular fairy tale, Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, the show was jam-packed with modern pop songs, awesome dances, side-splitting humour and a whole lot of fun. The show ran for two nights on Wednesday, 27 July and Thursday, 28 July and over 1300 tickets were sold.

Danté Sims (Snow White), Rudi van der Merwe (Prince Edward), Grace Calitz (Belladonna Black) and Aletta Simpson (The Narrator) delivered stellar performances as the main cast. The cast consisted of 29 Learners, 15 teachers and they were supported by almost 180 extra grade 8 and grade 9 learners.

What made the production so unique was that teachers also portrayed some of the characters to huge enjoyment of the audience. The production was co-written and produced by two Curro Durbanville educators, Lize-Meri Amann and Deon van Zyl.

Curro Durbanville will present a children’s theatre production of Hansel and Gretel in March of 2017. More information regarding this production will be revealed soon.
