Making snowmen on an icy day, don’t forget the carrot for the nose! Running around and throwing snowballs at each other and laughing whilst laying on the ground, arms stretched out, making snow angels on the snow-filled ground. Ah, the winter memories. Oh sorry, it doesn’t snow in Cape Town. Must’ve been a scene from a movie.

Whenever winter comes around, Capetonians sadly never get to experience the snow. Luckily, Slava Snowshow is giving us a chance to get the true snow experience, right here in the Mother City.

Slava Snowshow takes you on a reminiscent journey through your childhood and through a snow haven with an entertaining story.

The show manages to transport the audience to a magical place for children and adults. The Slava Snowshow is a wordless show that enchants the audience with its amazing scenes of wonder.

The Slava Snowshow has been running for over 20 years worldwide. With shows in New York, London, Paris, Hong Kong and more, this theatrical piece has become an instant success and all-time favourite.

Slava Polunin, the creator of Slava Snowshow, has been named as a noteworthy clown to watch in the 21st century.

One of the best features is the finale, in which a letter turns into snowflakes and the flakes form a snowstorm, covering the audience in ankle-deep snow.

Join the magnificent snow journey and release your inner child at Slava Snowshow.

As a recommendation, the show is not suitable for children under the age of 8 years.
