The Magic Box

Event information

Disney’s 'The Magic Box' announces the world premiere of its English-language production in the motherland. The show, featuring an all-South African cast and crew, opens in Cape Town during the month of October for a limited season and then transfers to Johannesburg in November before embarking on an international tour.

The musical, which originally premiered with great success in January 2024 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, immerses the audience in an unprecedented theatrical adventure that combines puppetry, elaborate costumes, and projections in an innovative and large-scale staging. The show is a sensory experience that pays tribute to the art of animation and invites the audience to reconnect with the legacy of Disney music through the stories, songs, and characters that have accompanied them through the different stages of their lives.

The show includes excerpts from more than 75 songs from Disney films written by some of the most important songwriters and composers of all time, including Alan Menken, Phil Collins, Elton John, Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Tim Rice, Richard and Robert Sherman, Hans Zimmer, and many more. Some of the iconic songs that are part of the musical are “A Whole New World” (ALADDIN), “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” (ENCANTO), “How Far I’ll Go” (MOANA), "Circle of Life" (THE LION KING), "Let It Go" (FROZEN) and "This Wish" (WISH).

From 15 May until 21 May, Disney fans and theatre lovers are able to sign up on the waiting list, which grants them access to an exclusive 24-hour pre-sale period ahead of tickets going on sale to the public on 22 May. No children under 3 years are permitted to showings. Parental guidance is recommended.
