Jungle Theatre Company presents: Python and the Qunube Tree


As part of the Muizenberg Children’s Arts Festival, Python and the Qunube Tree will be performed at the Masque Theatre (foyer) from 1 – 5 Oct at 10am every day.


Python and the Qunube Treeis based on an African folktale. When a terrible drought leaves all the animals on the brink of starvation, Python’s Qunube tree is the only food that survives. Surprisingly, little tortoise saves the day with his special talent, breaking the cycle of the drought and freeing the Qunube berries for all the animals to eat. This story is told in English, Afrikaans and isiXhosa with a large python puppet, hilarious animal masks and beautiful singing. The children learn about sharing, perseverance, trust, and that we all have talents that need to be discovered.


The show is suitable for kids all ages but most suitable for kids from age 6.Tickets are R70.

Jungle Theatre Company(JTC) was established as an NPO in 2004 aiming to inspire and empower disadvantaged children & youth to make positive changes in their lives and build a peaceful and vibrant South Africa. JTC’s professional artistic team draws on South Africa’s diverse cultural heritage and indigenous languages to find connections to the environment and human nature, creating and performing original African children’s theatre shows that bring together music, dance, masks, puppets, clowning and storytelling. These performances raise awareness, inspire learning and motivate children and youth to participate in workshops and performing arts training resulting in; developing life skills; building self-confidence and creating opportunities. We partner with educational, social, environmental, health and arts organizations to offer our work to diverse communities in South Africa and beyond. We bring this work to underprivileged communities with financial support from government, private trusts, foundations and individuals.
