Boggs is back

LEONGATHA Lyric Theatre is pleased to announce that after nearly eight years, the Boggs show is back to entertain and delight South Gippsland audiences.

The end of year travelling show which dates back more than 30 years, is affectionately known as the Boggs show.

This time around the show is back with many of its favourite cast members, including Nicole Cooper, Alison McIntyre, Terry Lay, Barb Fleming and Brad beach who will be joined by new members Adrian Darakai and Laura Mauraty.

The Boggs is Back show is two hours of hilarious fun coupled with a little cross dressing, funny jokes, fantastic comedy sketches and heartfelt songs.

The show is designed to allow audiences two hours to escape and have a great time with friends.

Over the past 30 years, the Boggs show has often been seen as the best end of year fun you can have with friends laughing while having a few drinks.

This year’s show features songs – some serious, some comedic – a bit of dance, a range of skits – some original, some adapted -from well loved TV shows and is promising to be one of the best Boggs yet.

The adults only show, which is never crude but often naughty, promises to provide audiences with many laughs.

In addition to the fun, the show is also an opportunity for audiences to hear amazing performances from fantastic singers who will provide highly impressive musical moments. It includes some of Lyrics best performers.

If you like comedy, great singing or both, make a point of coming to see Boggs is Back.

With three shows only, hosted by the Mirboo North Swimming Pool, Dumbalk Hall and Korumburra Italian Club, seats will be limited so book early.

The name hails back to the Boggs family who provided a long and rich tradition of music hall entertainment in South Gippsland.

Ebeneezer Boggs (or Genghis as he is affectionately known), and wife Sybil Sidebottom-Boggs created the lineage which has now extended over three generations and has spread to include children, cousins, nieces, in-laws and outlaws.

Originals such as Donald McDangle Boggs, Dan Druff (or Woody) Boggs and Ernestine Boggs have seen the family grow to include the ever increasing Hills, (or Boggs-Hills, or to be completely accurate, Sidebottom-Boggs-Hills), family, some of the more recent of whom are appearing for the first time in this show.

Shows are:

  • Dumbalk Hall, Friday, November 10. Bookings to Bev Hanley on 5664 4344 or Jan Stirling on 5664 4396 or 0488 445 153;
