uShaka Marine World present Lauren Laing and Jonathon Didlick in tribute to songs by famous blondes.

If you ever wanted to test the notion that blondes definitely do have more fun, then uShaka Marine World’s latest musical tribute should set the record straight. The Upper Deck Dinner Theatre on the Phantom Ship is where tribute will be paid to the contribution “blonde” performers have made to the music industry.

From January 14 to March 14, Durban blonde bombshell Lauren Laing and heart throb Jonathon Didlick will treat guests to songs by famous blondes ranging from the iconic Marilyn Monroe to sultry Christina Aguilera, marvelous “Madge” Madonna and legendary male rockers Sting, Bon Jovi and David Bowie.

Produced by Wayne Scott and directed by Charon Williams Ross – the team who presented the sell-out Let’s Hear it for the Boys last year – Blondes on Deck will also include songs from Duffy, Faith Hill, Clare Johnstone, Ronan Keating, Kylie Minogue, BeyoncĂ©, Olivia Newton John, Alicia Keys, Rod Stewart and larger-than-life blondie Dolly Parton.

Laing, most recently seen in Rocking all over the World at the Barnyard, and Jonathon, of boy band Tequila Sunrise, will be supported by Londiwe Dhlomo, Jacqui Majoor, Tami du Preez and the five-piece uShaka band.
Blondes on Deck will be staged Wednesday to Saturday nights at 20h00 (dinner starts at 19h00) from January 14 to March 14. Tickets R150 include a delicious buffet menu. Bookings can be made at 031 328 8068 or Computicket.
