Marvellous Mixtures - A Granny on the Loose!

Marvellous Mixtures at Catalina TheatreWatch Out!!!! There's a twelve storey granny on the loose and she is heading to the Catalina Theatre over the school holidays! A "must see" for children and adults of all ages.

'Marvellous Mixtures' inspired by Roald Dahl¹s hugely popular children¹s book "George's Marvellous Medicine" is now narrated by two local (and long suffering) farm chickens and is set on a desolate Karoo farm.

Catalina Theatre from 27 March - 11 April
Showtime: 11h00 daily with, optional boat ride after @ 12pm
Running time:  50 minutes
Directed, adapted and designed by Neil Coppen
Tickets:  R55 with boat ride around the harbour / R40 show only

This madcap piece of family entertainment combines award-winning playwright and director Neil Coppen¹s love for physical theatre, puppetry and magic.

Marvellous Mixtures was first performed eight years ago (with Neil Coppen and Kasia Stempowski starring) and played to capacity houses at festivals and theatres around the country. This time around it is being performed by two much-loved performers, Bryan Hiles and Daisy Spencer.
Marvellous Mixtures follows the misadventures of mischievous Matthew Pampoenpip who sets out to solve his foul-tempered Granny (Ouma Lemoenlippe) 'slug munching' ways, by brewing her a magical medicine that will cure her for good.  Of course things don¹t go quite as young Matthew had planned when Ouma begins to sky rocket through the farm house roof.

Follow Matthew on this magical, whacky and absurd comic adventure as he tries to stop his gargantuan granny (Godzilla with false teeth) from embarking on a catastrophic rampage.
