Busch Tampa to open KaTonga show

Posted | Contributed by Jeff

Busch Gardens Tampa will expand the entertainment portion of its park on April 8 with the opening of KaTonga, a theatrical production Busch calls its largest financial investment of any performance it has staged. The show is about African storytellers.

Thankfully they aren't still billing this show as a "Broadway" production since this show NEVER played on Broadway. However, the press release still says the theatre is ""the first legitimate theatre to be built in a theme park," says the show's producer, Don Frantz. "The theatre is similar to New York's Marriott Marquis."

Well, actually, the theatre has been there since 1985 and has played host to several ice shows as well as several musical revues. Someone reading the article may assume that the theatre has been built specifically for this prodcution.

The Moroccan Palace Theater has been complete redesigned. Everything from the inside was ripped out and replaced.

If you are an annual pass holder, you can see KaTonga before April 8th. To get your tickets, look for the kiosk near the theater two hours before a show time.

Get your tickets? Does that mean there's an additional charge for this show or you just have to have reserved seats?

I read the article and it didn't mention anything about a charge, so I'm just guessing you have to have tickets to reserve your seats at no charge.

Just for reservation.
