The countdown to Christmas has begun and, at uShaka Marine World, preparations are already underway for the eagerly anticipated “Dolphins By Starlight” extravaganza.
This year’s production, themed “A Christmas Adventure”, promises to continue the tradition of thrilling and delighting young and old alike. It will run from December 10 to 14 and creatively directed and produced by Karen van Pletsen of Raise Your Voice. Multi award winning creative Gouldie will lend his talents to the staging and choreography of the show.
Dolphins By Starlight will star Durban divo, Clive Gumede and songstress Samanther Landers. They will be accompanied by the magnificent voices of the 20 piece Durban Gospel Choir, angelic child star, Lasandra Majola, and a live band headed by award winning maestro musical director, Evan Roberts .
The cast will lead the audience in festive sing-alongs as well as perform musical hits such as Rihanna’s “Halo”, Josh Groban’s “The Prayer “, Luther Vandross’ “Love the one you’re with”, and Nicolas Jonas’ “Christmas Prayer” to name but a few.
A troupe of glamorous contemporary dancers, together with ballet sensations Nkanyiso Kunene and Leagan Peffer will add to this spectacle and sparkle of the show, but the most graceful stars will undoubtedly be the stunning Sea World Dolphins. This special ‘fun finned’ cast will also include 2015 Durban’s Living Legend Gambit.
This show promises many surprises – including precious snowflakes sent from the North Pole (courtesy of Minette de Klerk Dance Studio) and some rather excitable elves (played by Paz Genik, Daisey Spencer, and Jacobus Van Heerden) who will get the audience bopping to their North Pole Musical Hits “I want to swing from the Christmas Tree ” and “It’s all about the toys”.
The much loved uShaka Ocean Warrior Mascots – Slippy, Raggy, Rusty and Delia – will once again be on hand to remind audiences that the very best Christmas present of all is protecting our precious ocean.
“Dolphins by Starlight” is one family treat that you don’t want to miss this festive season, so don’t delay, book today!
