There’s only one way to celebrate the festive season in Johannesburg this year, and that’s enjoying Swingle Bells – A Christmas Concert Spectacular, on stage at The Teatro, Montecasino for eight performances only from Friday 15th – Sunday 24th December 2023.

After five years, local musical theatre and international concert entertainer, Jonathan Roxmouth (Key Change, The Phantom of the Opera, West Side Story, The Musicals in Concert) is returning to the Teatro at Montecasino, this time with the highly acclaimed 19-piece Johannesburg Big Band conducted by Adam Howard, to present a spectacular series of swingin’ Christmas hits entitled Swingle Bells.

In amongst all of this yuletide joy, there are countless surprises, familiar favourites and nostalgic hits.
