The Purrrfect Pantomime Adventure
From the producer of Shrek The Musical and twelve sold-out award winning pantomimes, Kickstart Productions bring you Puss in Boots, a swashbuckling spectacular for the whole family. Live on The Lyric stage from Friday, 30 June until Sunday, 23 July 2017, this rendition of Puss in Boots is a variation of the original tale that has inspired for sixteen centuries.
Set on a mystical, magical Caribbean island, Puss in Boots features a laugh-a-minute, great audience participation, breath-taking sets, gorgeous costumes and toe-tapping tunes which are sure to enthral both young and old. Featuring everybody’s favourite famous feline in footwear, along with a host of fabulous new characters, Puss in Boots offers the best in quality entertainment this winter holiday.
Written and directed by Steven Stead and designed by Greg King, the story of Puss in Boots is brought to life by a stellar cast - Earl Gregory as the booted feline; Ilse Klink as the good fairy Calypso Honeybunch; Michael Richard playing the evil shape-shifting goblin wizard, Grimbsy Withergood; Sean John Louw as the hapless miller’s son, Tom Marzipan; Darren King as Mother Merry Marzipan; and Zak Hendricks, Londiwe Dhlomo-Dhlamini, Yamikani Mahaka-Phiri and Caitlin Kilburn as some of Puss’ friends. This extravagant stage production is choreographed by Janine Bennewith, and under the musical direction of Rowan Bakker.
Traditionally, the story of Puss in Boots centres around the youngest of three sons who, when his miller father dies, inherits the family cat. However, Puss is no ordinary snooze-in-the-sun kitty! He sets up an elaborate plot to pass his new owner off as the grand Marquis of Carrabas in order to win the heart of the beautiful princess, outwit an ogre, hoodwink the king ...and live happily ever after!
