Kidz Skouspeel 2018

This weekend Lollos, Lettie, Liewe Heksie and all your other family favourites will be visiting Tyger Valley for Princess Arena's annual show. Let the little ones be mesmerized with Princess Arena and her friends, Lollos and Lettie, Tjiff & Tjaff, Liewe Heksie, Spekkies and Tyger Valley`s very own mascots - Tom and Tina the tigers. 

Kidz Skouspeel 5, Princess Arena`s annual Talent Extravaganza, will entertain young and old.

For the first time, they are joined by the Queen of the valley. She is beautiful and very talented, but not always so friendly. Will Princess Arena and her friends be able to impress her with their kindness and talent?
