Montecasino Teatro presents The Lion King

I hope you are well into the spirit of a new year upon us and are ready for some exciting new experiences in 2008! I spent part of my time over the holidays entertaining my cousins who were visiting from Durban and Pietermaritzburg.

Apart from the usual movie-going activities, we decided to make the holidays a little more memorable so I managed to land us tickets to one of the hottest musicals in South Africa, The Lion King.

The show is currently on at the Montecasino Teatro in Fourways, JHB. Due to its ever-increasing popularity, it has been extended for a second time and will go on till 17 February 2008.

The Teatro was packed to capacity in a well- air conditioned theatre that very likely looked like it could seat close to 1,962 people. The newly constructed Teatro was commissioned by Tsogo Sun at close to R100 million and is one of the 10 largest lyric theaters in the world.

The performance of The Lion King is a feast for the eyes and ears and should you be visiting Johannesburg in the next month, you should definitely book your tickets to the show as soon as possible, as they are hot property and go pretty fast.
