Santa will be joined by a host of pixies, angels, fairies and sleek sea creatures in uShaka Marine World's presentation of Dolphins by Starlight - The Magic of Christmas.

The Durban extravanganza is being hosted by the provincial department of community safety and liaison from December 11 to 13.

Lovable Durban theatre personality Frank Graham as Santa Claus leads a cast of local stars including Chloe Perling (Sugarplum Fairy), uShaka favourites Clive Gumede, Khaya Mthethwa and the boys from the hit show Tequila Sunrise - Jonathan Didlick, Cavin Sewell, Lyle Buxton and Bradley Marshall. Also on the star-studded bill are Frances Currie (last seen in the Wizard of Oz), the Galadriel Celtic singing group, the Pantsula Pixies and the Williams-Ros choir.

Centre stage, of course, will go to uShaka's talented dolphins, who promise to add their special splash to the family show. And watch out for "old-timer" Gambit who will make a special guest appearance.

The sparkling programme, produced by Wayne Scott and directed by Charon Williams-Ros, includes festive songs such as Santa Claus is Coming to TownThis Christmas, Believe and Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas and a host of all-time favourite Christmas carols.

The exciting musical direction is by Shemuel Mahabeer.

Tickets are selling fast, so to give your family a great outing be sure to book early at Computicket or uShaka Marine World.
