The Dingalings launch their brand new comedy called Dings, Flings and Other Things (subtitled Class of 85) at Suncoast Supernova, in Durban, from May 27 to 29.

A much-awaited sequel to their hit comedy Chops, Choons and Spano Dops, the show is again directed by comedy heavyweight Yugan Naidoo. It features Dingalings comic favourite Henry Ramkissoon , the talented award-winning Senzo Mthethwa from Boolulu Uncle fame; husband and wife comedy stalwarts Koobeshen and Kumseela Naidoo; Verushka Odayen and new-comer Sharika China.

Ravi Subramoney has composed the score and adds to the appeal with his own performance.

Back at their matric reunion, the guys take audiences down a nostalgic trip back to the good old days of the 80's complete with all the favourite 80's hit music. What they plan to be a guys’ weekend away doesn't quite pan out as intended, when wives, girl friends and old flames all show up.

Dings, Flings and Other Things is a not-to-be-missed laugh-a-minute comedy which promises to be the best offering from the Dingalings yet. “Prepare to be dazzled with all the spectacle of the 80's , fall off your seat laughing at the Dingalings off-the-wall antics and sing-along to those old familiar tunes we grew up with,” say the organisers.

Dings, Flings and Other Things runs at Suncoast Supernova on May 27 at 20h30, May 28 at 17h30 and 21h00 and May 29 at 18h00. Tickets R100 booked through Suncoast Cine Centre box office or on 031 328 3349/38. Early booking is advised.
