Last summer June Rodgers played her first major theater concert tour.
The response was amazing, a sell-out everywhere including the 2,000 seater Bord Gais Energy Theater proving once again that variety theater is alive, kicking and laughing.
June Rodgers, Ireland's foremost funny lady is bringing her stunning stage show to a venue near you. June celebrates 25 years in the Entertainment Industry this year with her Nationwide Tour: ‘IN THE MERRY MONTH OF JUNE' beginning on 5th June in Limerick, followed by Cork Opera House, Wexford Opera House, The Royal Theater, Castlebar and a week at The Gaiety Theater, Dublin from Monday, 15th – Saturday, 20th June 2015. Theater performance has always been June's first love (she was the queen of panto at the Gaiety for many years), and has performed in musicals as diverse as "The Full Monty" and "The Pirates of Penzance".
In recent years she has concentrated on producing her own variety-style show for the Moran Hotel group in Dublin and Cork. This slick production brings together June's stock of hilarious characters with high energy and sophisticated song and dance routines performed by her dynamic cast, and she received standing ovations to sell-out performances.
Listeners of the Joe Duffy's Liveline will be very familiar with June's regular featured spot on Funny Fridays. "I love the Funny Friday shows" June admits, "especially when we do them live at venues around the country".
This prompted her to embark on her first national Theater tour last summer, and her show sold out at each and every venue.
So be prepared to meet the international man of espionage, Oliver Bond – "the spy who loafed me", Kylie Minogue as you have never seen her before; a Ricky Martin impersonator with a Wickla' accent, and a host of June's other characters – old and new.
