The Joseph Stone Auditorium in Athlone is the place to be on Saturday 28 July as the popular annual show, Divas One Night Only (Dono), kicks off.

The eight-year-old stage production was created by former Miss Gay Western Cape (MGWC), Kat Gilardi, to create awareness of the LGBTIQ+ community and uplift cabarets.

Errol Stroebel, Gilardi’s partner of 14 years, explains the event has become a trendy showcase on the gay calendar since its establishment, showcasing the talent of both top seasoned and up-and-coming entertainers in the city.

“We are very proud to be celebrating our eighth anniversary and have 14 lovely divas performing at Dono this year. We definitely go big on all our productions, and this year will be even better, with great hits, costumes, dancers and really anything that adds to the entertainer’s performance,” Stroebel says.

“Every year we have different themes. This year we are celebrating musicals and memories, so get ready for a musical journey ranging from Regina Belle, Beyonce, Celine Dion and Barbara Streisand to Sound of Music, Moulin Rouge, Greatest Showman and many more.”

Stroebel says the show consists of several exciting scenes, including comedy and drama, and has become a sold-out event with over 500 viewers annually.

“This event was created by Gilardi, who won MGWC in 2010, and winning this prestigious title you as the title holder in your year of reign need to come up with a concept to raise awareness and funds for MGWC and charity,” he says.

“Gilardi decided to take on cabaret as it was never really seen as a form of art and career, and it never received the respect it deserves. In her opinion and to shine a light on drag, she created this event, because it’s a creative way of being you and making the public aware of the different forms of drag and cabaret.”

This year’s diva team consists of Stroebel himself, Barry Reid, the director of MGWC and Miss Pride, Lance Adams as music director, Nathan Charles Kayser as events MC for the past eight years and Adrienne Galagatsi – Miss Humanitarian 2017.

The show kicks off at 20:00 sharp at the Joseph Stone Auditorium. Tickets are available at Computicket for R150 per person and a ticket allows you free entry into the after party at Zero21 Social.
