Long-standing South African comedian, Marc Lottering’s musical Aunty Merle, celebrated four successful seasons and is welcoming the sequel Aunty Merle – It’s A Girl. It comes as no surprise that the cast received a standing ovation on opening night. Lottering has done it again.
 
Directed by multi-award-winning theatre practitioner, Lara Foot, the play continues with the story of Aunty Merle. Merle’s daughter and son-in-law, Abigail and Alan (played by Rushney Ferguson and Julian Place), have an announcement to make. After five years together, Abigail and her “Bantry Bay-born” husband, as Aunty Merle calls him, are expecting. This is much to the excitement of soon-to-be granny Merle as well as the whole of Belgravia Road, Athlone. 


 
The show runs until February 2020 and we were treated to two performances from the show. The first, The Cutest Thief, performed by Sizwesandile Mnisi and Anzio September, accompanied by guitar, and It Is What It Is, by Rushney Ferguson and Julian Place, accompanied by piano. 
 
 “Even though you’re telling the same story every night – the energy is real – and when people give you so much love and so much feedback while you’re on stage. It makes every evening magical,” said Lottering.
