(Marion Loudon)

Rhumbelow Theatre Durban and Pietermaritzburg are to present a mix of Rock n Roll party favourites saluting all things festive! It’s the end of 2013 and everyone is gearing up for Christmas and the countdown to 2014.

Join Marion Loudon and the Reals for ‘Tis The Season!, a festive party show designed to knock the ‘stuff’ out of ‘stuffiness’ with a line up of festive favourites with rock and pop classics from yesteryear including All I Want for Christmas, Santa Baby and Rocking Around the Christmas Tree.

The Reals comprise Barry Thomson on guitar, with musical director Dawn Selby on keyboards, Mali Sewell on drums and Jason Andrew on the bass guitar. Marion Loudon will be joining them on vocals.
