(Lisa Bobbert, Liesl Coppin and Marion Loudon)

The Glitter Girls, the smash hit show starring Lisa Bobbert, Marion Loudon and Liesl Coppin, has been playing at The Heritage Theatre in Hillcrest with a few more performances to go.

Three of Durban’s most loved and versatile performers, Bobbert, Coppin and Loudon make up a formidable femme de force who have audiences eating out of the palms of their manicured hands. All three are natural comics and keep audiences in stitches with their irrepressible performances.

Absolute charmers, all three are previous recipients of the coveted Mercury Durban Theatre Personality of the Year Award. Their musical comedy is light hearted and very entertaining – you don't have to be an 80’s child to enjoy this show.

The Glitter Girls hinges around a 20-year school reunion of the Skolliesville High matric class of 1989. With songs from the 80s right up to today and hits from Bananarama, Eurythmics, Rihanna, Gloria Estephan and Abba, witness the Glitter Girls re-live their greatest triumphs, trials and heartbreaks.

The highlight of the show is when they gender-bend into their alter-egos – Kenny de la Mer, Ruben Lipshitz and John Smith. These “dudes” are underscored by the unmistakable backbeat of Duran Duran, Rick Ashley, Bruno Mars and Robin Thicke's Blurred Lines, to name but a few.

The Glitter Girls perform at the Heritage Theatre in Hillcrest until March 30. Tickets R185 Tuesday and Sunday (R215 Wednesdays to Saturdays) include a two-course meal (R130 show only). Bookings through the Heritage Theatre on 031 765 4197 or
