Tripswitch! Something for the kiddies.


Here is something for the family! An entertaining new school play and fun way to kick off the school holidays! Chelsea Preparatory School presents Tripswitch, a delightfully funny South African play, written by a local Drama teacher Jean van Elden of Eden College. Two old British ladies get a phone call to say they have won a trip to Paris, or so they think. Instead of landing in Paris, they land at OR Thambo International Airport. They travel through South Africa experiencing our many unique cultures. Their final destination is a small farm town, Parys, where the penny drops! Their destination was not Paris, it was Parys! Catch the fun and support our young talent. The show takes place from the 25th to the 27th of September
