Simply the Best
This December, three fans (and their partners) have the opportunity of attending the new Showtime Australia production at Sibaya Casino. As you can tell by the title, the show is called ‘Simply the Best’ featuring the powerful and energetic vocals of the great Tina Turner.
Showtime Australia are debuting this new show in KwaZulu Natal at the Izulu Theatre at Sibaya on the 15 December and it runs until 7 January 2018.
Bringing the energetic performance to stage is South African born Caroline Borole who was handpicked to perform most of the popular tracks featured in the two hour show amped up by a live band.
Borole, who was chosen to emulate Turner’s trademark growls and grunts and raspy vocals, comments “Tina is not like a lot of other performers out there. She really puts on a show when she’s on stage, so when one tries to emulate her, you have to make sure you study her down to the tee”. It is expected the audience may not be seated for long, as the four backup dancers twist and twirl around the stage.
Caroline Barole cites her family as a large influence in her musical style, having introduced her to a variety of genres growing up. She was introduced to Ike and Tina Turner’s music at the young age of 10 and Turners high energy and confidence had a lasting impression on her. She entered the entertainment industry after studying musical theatre and landed television roles as well as musical production appearances. Initially taking on the role of Tina Turner was a challenge for Borole, but her passion is all about performance and she admits she will happily endure the painful workout to leave it all on stage.
This show promises to be explosive and entertaining.
And guess what? You can win double tickets to attend and be part of this fantastic experience. How?
