Running over this weekend at Rhumbelow Theatre is The Favourites - Yours, Mine & Ours.

The Family Players, who started Rhumbelow Theatre and have presented many a comic drag evening, have selected a number of their favourite songs and also those most requested by the audience. Over the last 11 years they have entertained with a number of outrageous songs and comedy that has moved audiences to tears and had them rolling in the aisles with laughter.

“We have selected the numbers that we and you, the audience, have enjoyed the most and will present as a once-off weekend of fun and laughter,” explains Roland Stansell. “So look out for the over-the-top outfits, outrageous wigs and wildly long eye lashes as the Family Players take you on a journey into the comedy of drag at its best. The Family Players, now into its second decade of entertaining, will continue to bring you a great evening out and you will go home feeling lekker from all the laughter.”

The production stars Roland Stansell, Greg Baptie, Allan Quihampton and Derek Pearce.

The Favourites - Yours, Mine & Ours has its final two performances today at 14h00 and 18h30. R100 a ticket. Booking is essential through Computicket, or phone Roland on 082 499 8636 or e-mail
