Ceri Dupree is coming back to South Africa and will be at Gate69 with his all sassiness, sexiness and sequins.
As one of the UK’s top female impersonators, Ceri has been delighting audiences in Britain and around the world for almost 30 years. Aside from writing and producing his own shows, his extensive musical theatre credits include Hello Dolly, The Wizard of Oz and The Rocky Horror Show. He famously appeared at Madame Jo Jo’s in London’s West End for two years followed closely by a three-year residency at Minsky’s Music Hall in Cardiff. Over the years he has impersonated almost every female star in the business in shows such as The Ceri Dupree Spectacular, Duprees a Crowd, Totally Frocked Up and Missleading Ladies, to name but a few.
Now the “magician in heels” is heading back to South Africa and will be returning to Gate69 with his sassiness, sexiness and sequins. Immaculate Deception promises to be nothing less than a rollercoaster of stand-up comedy, gorgeous costumes, wigs, props, parody and song and a Dame Edna Everage impersonation that is touted as being better than the grande dame herself! In Immaculate Deception, there is something old, something new and a few unexpected surprises with all the favourite divas brought to life – even the Queen and Camilla make an appearance!
As Ceri Dupree says, “If it’s worth doing, it’s worth overdoing!” With a touch of Las Vegas glitz, this pacey, over-the-top offering is a fabby way to start 2019, a non-stop, quick-changing, one-man, multiple-woman show packed with energy and showmanship.
