Cannons Creek Independent School in Pinelands will stage Under the Big Top, a circus comedy. The play, directed by Judith Herbig, is set inside a circus with a huge cast of colourful circus performers. The play is about a bank that wants to foreclose on the circus unless the owner, Mr Marlow, can repay his loan. Unfortunately, he has bigger problems because quite a few of his performers are not very competent and the money he saved up to repay the loan gets stolen. The play is on at the school in Nursery Way, Pinelands on Thursday May 2 and Friday May 3, at 7pm, and on Saturday May 4, at 2.30pm. Tickets are R55 through Quicket.
