Soul sistas are back

IT'S a rib-tickling romp through the music of the '60s and '70s as the Fabulous Singlettes strut into town on Saturday.

Naomi Eyers, Diane Dixon and Melissa Langton are bringing their show to the Karralyka Centre in Ringwood.

Their zany sense of humour has thrilled audiences around Australia and beyond. They debuted in Sydney almost 30 years ago and have taken in Vienna, London, Berlin and Hong Kong.

Nevertheless, Langton says it's the only production she's never gotten sick of doing.

"There are shows I've done that I get bored of easily. I don't think I've ever done a Singlettes show that I haven't enjoyed.It's much more about having fun than being too serious. It still has very slick choreography, but the main thing is that we're actually all good vocalists."

Langton's credits include Les Miserables, Jesus Christ Superstar and The Pirates of Penzance. Dixon has lent her voice to backing Suzi Quatro and the Commodores. The Singlettes themselves are the creation of Naomi Eyres.

Langton, who grew up in Oakleigh South, says the audience has much to look forward to from an hour and a half of rollicking entertainment.

"At the end I feel like I've been hit by a freight train. We don't stop, so it's exhausting."

The performance features hits such as Time Is On My Side by the Rolling Stones, Be My Baby by the Ronettes and River Deep Mountain High by Ike and Tina Turner, although, with a bit of a twist.

"All of us are over 40, so in that sense it's not three skinny little chickens trying to look attractive," Langton says with a laugh.

"It's very tongue-in-cheek — we don't just sing. There's some dialogue and we make fun of being girly-girls. Even though 40 to 55 is probably our demographic, everybody will get our jokes. It's very generic."

The Karralyka Centre is on Mines Road in Ringwood East. Tickets for the Fabulous Singlettes are $41.50, or $38.50 for concession.
