Aunty-Merle-3-cropped-700x400The Baxter Theatre presents local comedian Marc Lottering’s new musical-comedy show, Aunty Merle, The Musical. This performance, written by Lottering and musical direction by Alistair Izobell, focuses on the comedian’s “most beloved character” Aunty Merle Abrahams from Belgravia Road in Athlone.

High drama unfolds as Merle’s daughter Abigail (Tarryn Lamb) announces her engagement to Alan (Stephen Jubber) – a “good-looking white chap”. Abigail’s twisted and corrupt ex, Denver Paulse (Loukmaan Adams), who holds a dodgy top job with the SABC, is determined to get her back. If not, he threatens to reveal a very dark secret which is bound to tear the lovers apart.

Age Restriction: PG14

  1. Would love to win tickets to Marc Lottering’s show. Don’t when last I have been to a show. Life is stressful and one needs a good laugh. He is a really good comedian.

  2. Haaaaayyyyyy!!!!
    Gotta heart us some Markie Mark #oneofakind #let’sraiseaglassto’feelgoodmomementswiththee 😀
    I would LOVE to get lucky and secure some txts #whataFABniteoutthatwouldbe x

  3. PRETTY PLEASE GIVE ME the TICKETS
    Mark is the most hilarious person, I can just look at him and start laughing specially with the “kopdoekie”on.

  4. I find it intriguing that so many people have wanted to see the show yet did not buy tickets. LOCAL IS LEKKER, and by opurchasing tickets will be beneficial to our artists

  5. Would love to experience the theatre with my mom again, She loves musicals and this show of Mark Lottering will be the ideal opportunity for us to have some fun and laughter together.

    We live in Cafda Retreat and Aunty Merle is just like my Ma ! We would love to see her show. Lots of love Trevaline

  8. What intrigues me is that there are so many people wanting to win the tickets but reluctant to buy them. Remember LOCAL IS LEKKER and it is beneficial to artists and/or companies

    Heard so many wonderful reports about this show. Would love to go with my husband, who says he was a Moslem aunty who loved cooking in his last life.

    Wow! What an amazing surprise to hear that Auntie Merle is back! Aunt Merle we just assumed that when we did not hear or see you and uncle Dennis, that you had moved from Belgravia as one of the Constantia or Rondebosch land claims recipients! Looking forward to seeing you again over a lovely cuppa and lemon meringoo.

    I have never seen Marc Lotterring on stage, so this will be a fantastic
    introduction…also a great pre- birthday treat for me for the 12th.
    My sister was just saying that we should see the show,
    so if I win it will be my birthday treat for her
    How’s that for a twist!!!!

    Missed the previous show and could have kicked myself. Never ever miss his performances. HE’S MY ABSOLUTE FAVOURITE ! Please consider giving me the tickets ? Hilde

  21. I want to take my “good-looking brown chap” out on a date, why not share the evening with Aunty Merle??!!!

  22. Marc Lottering is my absolute favourite and Aunty Merle is the most interesting lady in Belgravia Road.

  23. I’m a school teacher so a good belly-aching laugh for a few hours would be food for the soul and put a spring in my step for the next day when I greet my class!

  24. I absolutely would love to take my boyfriend to see Aunty Merle the Musical. He lives Marc Lottering and will undoubtably have a blast!! 😃

  25. Would be amazing to be in a live audience and to watch Mark Lottering. I have always been a major fan so to win these tickets would be amazing.

  26. I would love to win some tickets for my mom for this man make her laugh so loud that she pee in her pants. It would be such a blessing to win and take my mom to the show.

  27. Mark Lottering is not just an amazing comedian, but a person that should be recognise as a South African role model.

  28. Amelia Johnston

    Would so love to see this! Haven’t watched live comedy with Marc Lottering, and heard from someone who saw the show that it was really good
    But also when i see names like Alister Izzobel and Loukmaan Adams, then i know its a show well worth watching!!

    So, Pretty Please…

  29. imelda petersen

    was hilarious and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Wouldn’t mind seeing it again but unfortunately am in Munich Germany!!! Am always on the lookout for something from Cape Town or just also from RSA. – my home country!
