Ceri Dupree is heading back to South Africa hot off London’s West End in a brand new hilarious glitterfest, The Fabulous Ceri Dupree Show. The limited Cape Town and Johannesburg seasons will be presented by VRG Theatrical in February 2016.
Ceri has been delighting audiences worldwide for more than 30 years and his unique talents have landed him roles in musical theatre, pantomime, summer seasons, TV and cabaret. He has performed in major venues around the world, including Las Vegas, London, Spain, Greece and the Seychelles. His passion for theatre has inspired him to write and produce his own shows and most recently he starred alongside his sister, Ria Jones, at the St. James Theatre in London in the runaway smash hit Miss-Leading Ladies, that critics adored unanimously.
In The Fabulous Ceri Dupree Show, Ceri closely resembles and sounds just like the gorgeous Divas he impersonates. Every song is performed live, with no lip-syncing. From the glamour days of Marlene Dietrich and Doris Day, through the Broadway Divas era, to icons like Cher, Madonna, Adele and Lady GaGa, Dupree takes his audience on a rollercoaster ride that will delight and entertain.
With more than 20 suitcases filled to the brim with gowns, headdresses, feathers, gloves, boas and enough diamantes to dazzle an audience, Dupree is set to display a glorious wardrobe, scarcely seen since the heyday of his mentor and friend, Danny La Rue.
The Fabulous Ceri Dupree Show is a whirlpool of illusion, captivating chemistry and a delightful homage to the revered leading ladies of today and of a bygone golden era.
The show runs in Cape Town at the Artscape Arena from 9 to 13 February 2016 with tickets costing R150.00 and with bookings via Computicket or 08619158000. In Johannesburg the show will run at the Auto & General Theatre On The Square in Sandton from 16 to 20 February 2016 and bookings are through www.strictlytickets.com.
