The Birdcage at Milnerton Playhouse

Drag shows, nightclubs and family values, this production of The Birdcage brings it all to The Milnerton Playhouse

The Birdcage, an iconic film which featured actors like Robin Williams, Nathan Lane, Gene Hackman and Dianne Wiest will be brought to life at the Milnerton Playhouse from Friday, 16 to Saturday, 24 February 2018.

Produced by the Constantiaberg Players, and adapted as well as directed by the CATA (Cape Amateur Theatre Award-winning (CATA) Barrie Howard, the production stars CATA Lead Actor nominated Mark Wilkes and David Waugh as Armand and Albert (respectively played by Robin Williams and Nathan Lane n the film).

All elements of the movie will be brought to the live stage. Expect the ups, downs, glitz and glamour of onstage drag artists, peeps into the nightclub, an unusual family occasion and absolutely unforgettable characters.

The story follows Armand and Albert, who have built their ideal life and run a gaudy Miami drag club. Their reality is shaken when Armand’s son, Val, announces he’s getting married – to the daughter of extreme conservative Senator Keeley, and wants them all to get together for dinner!

Through the performance of their lives, the duo will do whatever it takes to fool Keeley. Can Armand and Albert transform themselves into the perfect moral family in time? Grab your tickets through to find out.
