Behind the scenes — Starlight Express South Africa 2013 at Joburg Theatre

At last, one of the best loved and longest running musicals in theatrical history explodes onto the South African stage with a brand new production helmed by acclaimed, award-winning director Janice Honeyman.
Essentially a rock musical, STARLIGHT EXPRESS follows a child’s dream in which his toy train set comes to life; the actors all play the trains, so they famously perform the entire show wearing roller skates to show their mobility!
The Joburg Theatre production of STARLIGHT EXPRESS is the first ever ‘non-replica’ interpretation officially licensed by Lloyd Webber.
I had no idea what to expect when I recieved the invitation to the show. When I googled it all I saw was roller skates and tin foil:) Boy was I pleasantly surprised, The outfits are super cute and the cast has so much energy, I cannot believe they all had to learn how to skate:) The show was well put together and makes for a perfect evening out. I took my mom with me once again, and we had the best seats this time around, we were so near the stage, we were practically arms length from some of te cast members. I definately recommend this one!
