The Jungle Theatre Company presents a play for the younger audience, River Of Life/ Umlambo Wobomi, which will run at the Masque Theatre, Muizenberg, during National Water Week from Tuesday to Thursday March 22 to 24.
This original play by the Jungle Theatre is an African fairy tale about a rural tribe and their special princess, Mamlambo, who all live by a beautiful river full of magical creatures. With her community in crisis, Princess Mamlambo finds the courage to travel a path alone. She adventures through a hot, dry desert, a teeming jungle and climbs the tallest mountain, all to find the sangoma, save the river and her village.
Based on a story told in the oral tradition, River Of Life/ Umlambo Wobomi brings an Xhosa tale into the modern age – a musical, physical, interactive production that takes pupils on a journey of discovery and learning about water and the important role that communities play in protecting this precious resource. With a cast of four, the play focuses on positive solutions to current environmental and social concerns in South Africa, bringing important messages to young people.
Performances take place on March 22 to 24 at 10am in the Masque foyer. Tickets are R50 and refreshments will be available. To book your ticket ,contact the Masque ticket line on 021 788 1898 or email email@example.com
