There’s A Brand-New Pantomime Heading To Emperors Palace This May!


For a classic fairy tale with a South African twist, this May, Emperors Palace will be bringing a brand-new pantomime to the Theatre of Marcellus. If you thoroughly enjoyed Sneeuwitjie and Aspoestertjie, then you’ll certainly not want to miss out on this new production. 

The fantasy world of fairy tales and romance comes alive at Emperors Palace this May, as the classic story of Sleeping Beauty will be turned and reenacted on stage as the new Afrikaans pantomime, Doringrosie: Die Slapende Skone.

What Is It About?

On the eve of her 18th birthday, the beautiful Princess Aurora pricks her finger on a spindle of a spinning wheel and falls into an enchanted deep sleep. Is this the end, or will the kiss of the handsome Prince awaken her?

The talented and beautiful, Charlize Berg, shines in the title role opposite the talented actor, presenter and singer, Marno van der Merwe, who will be playing the role as the heroic Prince Aalwyn. The passionate, Bianca Le Grange, is of course, the perfect Belladonna (Maleficent), while the sharp humour of the two Good Fairies (Hannes Brummer and Tiaan Rautenbach) will put a smile on everyone’s faces.

Fresh on the heels of the excellently received Sneeuwitjie (Snow White) and Aspoestertjie (Cinderella), this production is sure to be another hit! Doringrosie will be an exciting adventure with something for everyone, complete with humour for the parents, intertwined with the most beautiful fairy tale elements for children.
