Kipper And The Circus come to Artscape

Kipper and his friends will be taking the Artscape theatre by storm from 18 to 22 August. Kipper’s had so many fun adventures the show’s producers had a hard time coming up with a new destination. But what could be more exciting than a circus?

The Cirque du Amar, all the way from Paris, France, is in town and everyone wants to attend. Kipper, Wilma and Gran are among the lucky ones who manage to obtain tickets but a tragedy befalls the circus – chickenpox. Only the ringmaster, Mario, and the magician, Carlos, are spared the horrible red spots. Must they cancel their shows or can Kipper come to the rescue?

De Klerk Oelofse plays the role of Kipper, Martelize Kolver is Gran, Dean Balie is ringmaster Mario, Crystal Donna Roberts plays Wilma and Jason Barnard of the Zip Zap Circus plays Carlos.

As director Marinda Engelbrecht creates the imagery and playwright Margit Meyer-Rodenbeck provides the dialogue, Niel Rademan provides the music and Liandé Valentyn the dance steps that offer a merry-go-round of colour and fun.

Kipper And The Circus – every weekday at 9.30 am and 11 am:

  • 18 to 22 August in English
  • 11 to 15 and  25 to 29 August in Afrikaans

Tickets cost R70 each and R50 each for group bookings. They’re obtainable from Ansunette. Call 082- 828-8505 or email
