An Afrikaans Extravaganza You Just Cannot Miss At Emperors Palace

May is here, which means the chill is slowly creeping in. And to keep the cold at bay, Emperors Palace has a hot entertainment lineup to delight both young and old. From an Afrikaans music extravaganza to a brand-new pantomime, make sure you head out to the East Rand for some of the best entertainment around.


Doringrosie: Die Slapende Skone Is Taking Centre Stage This May

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

On the eve of her 18th birthday, the beautiful Princess Aurora pricks her finger on the 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 of 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 and beautiful fairy-tale elements for children. Book your tickets now!

Date: 05 May to 04 June 2017. Show takes place at 11:00, 15:00 and 19:30 on Saturdays and Sundays, and at 19:30 on Thursdays and Fridays.

Venue: Theatre of Marcellus, Emperors Palace, 64 Jones Road, Kempton Park, Johannesburg.

Gaan Vir Goud

Gaan Vir Goud is a brand-new Afrikaans music extravaganza that you will definitely not want to miss! Four of South Africa’s best-known artists – Bobby Van Jaarsveld, ADAM, Riana Nel and Robbie Wessels – will be entertaining audiences with their top songs for a memorable evening. With so many incredibly talented artists due to take to the stage, Gaan Vir Goud will be a highlight on this year’s Afrikaans music calendar.

Not only will audiences be blown away by the performances, they’ll also be impressed by the spectacular Centre Court venue that has been designed to enhance the experience of a live performance.

Bobby van Jaarsveld fans are in for a treat, as the award-winning pop singer and songwriter performs songs from his latest album, Die Eerste 10 Jaar, and many of his other well-known hits, including The Eyes of Secrets and Ziana.

Namibian-born singer and songwriter Riana Nel will join Bobby on stage to perform some of her own hit songs, along with their popular duet, Eens in ’n  Leeftyd.

ADAM, South Africa’s very own band of dreamboats, will get hearts fluttering with a dreamy musical set. Some hits to look forward to are their 2016 hit, Hoogtevrees, as well as Liefde Soldaat, Goud, and more.

Robbie Wessels will also make magic happen with a performance of some fan favourites from his long-standing and prolific music career. Liewe Ouers, Asseblief My Lief and Macarena Mambo are just a few ‘treffers’ to expect on the night.
