The McIlroy family are becoming the Kardashians of Durban with their theatre shows becoming a family affair: Aaron Mcilroy and Lisa Bobbert (and their offspring, Kaylee, Fiona and Grace Mcilroy) as they bring their unique brand of musical comedy genius back to the Barnyard at Suncoast for a limited season.

“I tried for Desperate Housewives of Durban but didn’t get in … and besides, those housewives’ nails have never scrubbed a toilet!” says Lisa.

There’s never a dull moment with the Mcilroys - singing, dancing, crazy characters and plenty of audience participation is guaranteed as they perform a smorgasbord of their favourite songs and skits – with some great new material and medleys: country and western; Elvis, Tina Turner, Post Modern Jukebox; Abba and some great South African tunes.

Aaron and Lisa Live at The Barnyard at Suncoast is directed by Darren King and choreographed by Daisy Spencer.

The show runs at the Barnyard from February 2 to 5, 2023. Tickets available through:
