After a successful debut in December 2018, Contagious Theatre is delighted to announce that  ‘The Boy Who Cried Ninja’ – which was co-produced with Daphne Kuhn and Auto & General Theatre on the Square – will show at Parktown Girls High School, along with their much loved Snow Goose, later this month. 

In The Boy Who Cried Ninja, which is based on Alex Latimer’s book of the same name, Tim witnesses some strange happenings around his house, but no one believes his explanations. No matter what Tim says, his parents just punish him with chores. To save himself, he hatches a clever plan to expose the truth. Will it work?

The show bubbles with humour and will have children and parents laughing out loud. It is aimed at children between 4 – 10 years old, although older audience members have also loved the production.


Snow Goose will also be on for one night only at Parktown Girls High School. Based on the Paul Gallico short story, it follows the relationship between a recluse and a young girl as they nurse an injured wild goose back to health in marshes of Essex in the 1930’s. Their world turns to chaos as the war edges closer. The production includes the use of masks, and is a wonderful piece of theatre that will have audience members enthralled throughout. The performances of Taryn Bennett and James Cairns, have delighted theatre goers around the country.
