DIVAS TO A T (article first published : 2000-07-20)

Tonya Koenderman will be back in Durban at the Royal Hotel's Backstage from July 26 to August 19 with her one woman show, Divas To a T. Directed by Lisa Bobbert, the show promises to be a musical feast in which Tonya pays tribute in song to many of the great ladies of song such as Tina Turner, Shirley Bassey, Barbra Streisand, Bette Midler, Liza Minelli, Miriam Makeba and many more.

In true Diva style, Tonya adds her own saucy and powerful - touch to classics such as Big Spender, Diamonds are Forever, I will Survive, Proud Mary and Nutbush City Limits linking them together with amusing anecdotes about the stars. The show has performed to rave reviews in Grahamstown, Cape Town and Johannesburg and promises loads of pizzazz, glamour and slinky costumes.

Tonya is no stranger to cabaret, having performed with The DooWah Girls since its inception in 1990. Other cabarets under her belt are We 3, with Gordon Mulholland and Paul Andrews, as well as the Cape Town hits Juke is King, Jive to the Juke and Wurlitzer. Her solo hit cabarets include Tonya Unwrapped, Makin' Whoopee, Liza with a T and Age of Aquarius.

Tonya has worked extensively for Sun International Extravaganzas and was the only local artist to star in the Sun City sensation Beyond Belief which ran for 16 months as well as at the casino - Caesar's, as the guest singer in the dance show, Dazzle.

Tickets are R110 which includes a three course meal and bookings can be made on (031) 304-0331.
