The upgraded Rhumbelow Theatre in Durban will host The South Jersey Pom-Poms in a show that invites audiences on a little detour – a Cabaret style romp through the tawdry world of ‘Smoke & Mirrors’.

Performing their own songs in French, German, Italian & English, and bringing their alter egos out to play, this promises to be a joinder destined to sidetrack even the most resolute.

So, get out your gaudiest jewels, your fattest lipstick and come along on a gallivant through a jumble of Pom-Poms originals like He Bought a New Face in America, Le Dernier Mot and Drunken Bvlgarian Girls.

Durban’s own; straddling unruly the space between twilight and youth, The South Jersey Pom-Poms are Grant Emmerich, Jochen Zeller, Sean Stewart, Belinda Henwood and Anton Cawthorn-Blazeby.

The South Jersey Pom-Poms run from August 24 to 26 on Friday and Saturday at 20h00 and on Sunday at 14h00. The venue opens 90 minutes before show for picnic dinner.

Tickets R150 (R130 pensioners and tables of eight or more). Take along food picnic baskets. Braais will be available. There is limited secure parking and booking is essential. A cash bar is available (no alcohol may be brought on to the premises). Rhumbelow Durban is situated at 42 Cunningham Road off Bartle Road in Umbilo.

Booking is through Computicket or contact Roland on 082 499 8636, email (also for group booking discounts of 20 or more) or visit
