An International Comedy Sensation!
Love conquers all in Showbiz Queenstown and Memorial Centre Productions’ sumptuous production of “La Cage Aux Folles”.
This jubilant show, which has earned 11 Tony Awards including Best Musical, celebrates marriage and family in all their forms.
If you know the Hollywood Comedy ‘The Birdcage’ then experience “La Cage Aux Folles”
La Cage Aux Folles tells the story of Georges (Alex Derbie), the owner of a glitzy drag nightclub in lovely Saint-Tropez, and his long time love Albin (Rutene Spooner), who moonlights as the glamorous Zaza. Together the couple have raised Georges’ son Jean-Michel (Finley Brentwood). When Jean-Michel announces his engagement to the daughter of a moralistic right-wing politician determined to crack down on gay nightlife, and invites her conservative family home to meet his ‘normal’ parents, the bonds of family are put to the test as the feather boas fly!
Featuring the ‘notorious and dangerous Cagelles’ and packed with such musical numbers as ‘I Am What I Am’, this show is a tuneful and touching tale of one family’s struggle to stay together… stay fabulous… and above all else, stay true to themselves.
Queenstown Memorial Centre 1 – 7 September 2013
