Smoke And Mirrors

Where does the phrase smoke and mirrors come from?

Why do we say “break a leg”? What is the green room? How does the stage floor open and close?

All these questions are answered and so much more is revealed when you join us on a backstage tour of one of South Africa’s most technically advanced stages, right here at Joburg Theatre.

Our team at Joburg Theatre will answer all your questions about the theatre and you will soon understand why we say “There is no business like showbusiness”.
