TIPSY TARTS FOLLIES (article first published : 2003-08-13)

The Rhumbelow Theatre in Umbilo, converted from a MOTH shellhole hall by the highly pro-active Family Players, is now two years old. The Family Players’ Tipsy Tarts Follies opened Rhumbelow Theatre and played to capacity houses.

Two years later and The Family Players will revisit their former success. Tipsy Tarts Follies features Derek Pearce, Greg Baptie, Roland Stansell, John Cavalheir, Alan Quihampton and Isaac Shozi. The show is a comical lip-sync (except for Isaac who sings live) drag send-up of a group of down and out actors who have been with out work for the last year in Durban.

They start off with no work, reminiscing about the good old days in the great Theatres of Durban and in the second half, they pick up their spirits and create a new look theatre extravaganza, all the while providing the audience with a comical evening of humour and mirth.

Shows on August 15 and 16 at 20h30 and on August 17 at 18h30 and the venue opens 90 minutes beforehand for picnic dinners. Tickets R40. Take along food picnic baskets and braais will be available for those who wish to cook some meat. There is limited secure parking and booking is essential. A cash bar is available (alcohol may not be brought on to the premises)

To book contact Roland on 031 205 7602 (h) or 082 499 8636, or email roland@stansell.za.net

Rhumbelow Theatre is situated in Cunningham Avenue off Bartle Road.
