Wanda the musical

Ticket to the Moon Youth Theatre Company presents
South African Children’s Stories


Homecoming Centre
Saturday 15th – Sunday 30th April 202

The South African premiere of a brand new first time stage adaptation of Sihle Nontshokweni and Mathabo Tlali’s best selling WANDA books has been charmingly adapted for the stage, with Music and Lyrics by Daniel Geddes and licensed by Jacana Media .

Meet Wanda (endearingly performed by Tebogo Moetswadi Molepo) with her beautiful head of hair. She is brave and strong, but she’s unhappy because of the endless teasing by the boys at school. After a particularly hard day at school, feeling confused, forlorn and hopeless, Wanda’s grandmother lets her in on a few secrets.

Through these hair secrets and stories, she finds the courage to face her fears and realise that her hair is a crown and something to be proud of.

This tender and big hearted musical  stands at the intersection of identity and beauty, celebrating how cultural pride is learned and passed on over the generations. The catchy songs and music  encourages young children to love themselves for what they are born with, despite what society may say or think.
Wanda The Musical is ideal for children aged 5 – 13 years old, but can be enjoyed by the whole family from 5 – 105.
