Mount Edgecombe Country Club in association with Rhumbelow Theatre will present Lisa Bobbert, Liesl Coppin and Marion Loudon in their highly popular show, The Glitter Girls, from May 12 to 14, 2023.

Bobbert, Coppin and Loudon have decided to re visit one of their favourite shows, The Glitter Girls.

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!

The three are absolute charmers – all are previous recipients of the coveted Mercury Durban Theatre Personality of the Year Award. You don't have to be an Eighties child to enjoy this light hearted and highly entertaining musical comedy.

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, who has lost his hair and been unlucky in love. These dudes are underscored by the unmistakable backbeat of Duran Duran, Rick Ashley and Bruno Mars.

Performances on May 12 and 13 at 19h30 and on May 14 at 14h00.
