Award-winning Durban actress, Lisa Bobbert, will be performing the music of Vera Lynn at the Rhumbelow Theatre, 42 Cunningham Road ,off Bartle Road, Umbilo, Durban at 8pm on Friday, March 17 and Saturday, March 18, at 2pm and 6.30pm on Sunday, March 19, 7.30pm on Monday, March 20, and 2pm and 6.30pm on Tuesday, March 21.
For those who cannot get to Umbilo, there will be a 2pm performance A Nightingale Sang… A Tribute To Vera Lynn – which also features the talents of Evan Roberts and Anthony Stonier – on Sunday, March 26 at the Aliwal Theatre.
In March 2017 Dame Vera Lynn will turn 100 years old. To this day, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren are familiar with her warm and beautiful voice. A voice, some say, helped to win a war.
A few years ago she was number one on the hit parade in England, with a re-release of her wartime album Hits of the Blitz. Not many 95-year-olds can boast that achievement!
Songs such as We’ll Meet Again, The White Cliffs of Dover, We’ll Gather Lilacs, There’ll Always be an England and, of course, A Nightingale Sang in Berkley Square are just a few of the many familiar and favourite songs featured in this tribute to a British National Treasure.
So join Lisa Bobbert, Evan Roberts and Anthony Stonier for a nostalgic trip down an English country lane and remember the songs and stories that won the war.
