Lisa Bobbert, Liesl Coppin and Marion Loudon have decided to re visit one of their favourite shows, The Glitter Girls. Having just completed a successful run at Rhumbelow Durban, they will move on to Kloof next weekend to perform this delightful show at Tina’s Hotel in Kloof. Shows take place from September 3 to 5, 2021.

These multi-award winning performers are Durban’s most loved and versatile artists. Together they are a formidable femme de force who not only light up the stage but have the audience eating out of the palms of their manicured hands. All three are natural comics that keep the audience in stitches with performances that can only be described as “irrepressible”!

Anyone remember Pac-man... The Rubic cube and Dallas? Yip, 1989 was a special year. These three trend-busting Glitter Girls have to go back! Back to neon, back to big hair and back to High School -Scottburgh High for their 30 year school reunion!

Extract from Keith Millar’s review of the show for artSMart:

Three of Durban’s most versatile and popular entertainers light up the stage with their incredible talent.

These ladies are a veritable tour de force. All three are natural comics who have more than average singing voices. They have oodles of charisma, and sassiness to burn. To be entertained by any one of them would be a treat, but to get all three together is magic. As a team they create a synergy and energy on stage that is electric. The audience are putty in the hands of these wonderful entertainers who have them clutching their sides and practically falling off their chairs with mirth.

All three are previous recipients of the coveted Mercury Durban Theatre Personality of the Year Award. The Glitter Girls won the 2014 Mercury Durban Theatre Award for Best Musical Review. This comedy hinges around a 30-year school reunion and includes songs from the 80s right up to today with hits from Bananarama, Eurythmics, Rihanna, Madonna and Abba, Pink and Meghan Trainor.

The absolute highlight of the show is when the girls gender-bend into their alter-egos; Kenny de la Mare, ex south coast stud who, 30 years on, still lives with his mom in a Wendy house; Ruben Lipshitz, still a fatty but has made a lot of money in Joburg and returns to see his old friends on the South Coast; and John Grey, ex head boy of Scottburgh High, who has lost his hair and been unlucky in love. These dudes are underscored by the unmistakable backbeat of Duran Duran, Rick Ashley and Wham and Bruno Mars.

Performances take place on September 3 and 4 at 18h30 and on September 15 at 14h00. (Venue opens 90 minutes before food and drinks downstairs at Tina's)

“We would ask that if you are able to please assist us and the performers by donating a higher ticket price,” says Roland Stansell who runs the Rhumbelow circuit.

All seating will be at separate tables and the venue will obviously be seating co-habiting couples and/or family members. 50% max capacity per show therefore early booking is important.

“Please note that for us to viably re-open The Rhumbelow Theatre at Tina’s Hotel we need to make some changes in regards how we run at Tina’s. We need to assist in generating a regular income for the hotel so that the theatre can continue to operate and for the hotel to also sustain itself,” adds Stansell.

“To assist in keeping the hotel afloat as well, we have agreed that a basic meal will be offered – this is optional. There are five meal options available at a cost of R100 each.”
