Georges Arts theatre, Khuma, George
The theatre is proud to offer the very first stage performance of Khumba, an animated family film made by Triggerfish Animation Studios. Khumba is a zebra but only has half a body with stripes, setting him apart from the other in the herd. When he is blamed for the lack of rainfall, he sets out on a journey to earn his stripes.
Fun family entertainment, teaching kids the importance of accepting others for who they are.
After the performance and the kids are hungry for pizza, have a look at our list of where you can go to in George to get the best pizza in town.
