Romeo & Juliet – An East Side Story



Dates: 12 November to the 31st December

Venue:  SUNzone at Suncoast Casino, Hotels & Entertainment

The adult pantomine, Romeo & Juliet: an East Coast Story, is a spoof of the 1950s American West Side Story. The show is inspired by Shakespeare’s most famous tragic love story of all time with a distinctly grown up twist that will provide the audience with a mix of naughty comedy, lots of well-known songs and a fair amount of risqué one-liners presented in an excellent stage performance.

Tickets are available at Computicket for R150. Get your New Years Eve package for only R500, which includes a three course dinner, champagne and the live show.

Additional tickets will be available at SUNCOAST from the 5th of November 2013.
