Die popular children’s production, “Mielie-Maalie-Maantuig”, based on the television series from the 1980’s, is showing from the 11th to the 16th of March in the Scaena Rehearsal Room.

“Mielie-Maalie-Maantuig” is a comic story built around Uncle Jasper’s “moon rocket”, a gigantic corn cob, which transports Uncle Jasper and his niece, Hettie, to the moon where they meet colourful characters such as the Queen of Light and her arch enemy, King of Darkness.

On a technical level, this production does not disappoint. The audience is transported from a laboratory on earth, to the grey plains of the moon, complete with moon rocks and aliens.

The production was last performed in 2007. The script is written by Errol Ross. DeBeer Cloete, director of “Woesklip” and “Die Towenaar van Onderstebo land”, once more takes on the reigns of director.
