Profile:
Durban actress, LISA BOBBERT has won the hearts of South African theatre audiences with many hit productions including Abbamaniacs, The Rocky Horror Show, Defending the Planet, Brutal Tunes and Sally Bowels in the musical Cabaret. A comedienne at heart, she infuses her performances with a wide palette of emotional undertones and razor-sharp perceptions that bring her many-sided stage characters to life.

Equally adept as a singer-dancer, mimic and dramatic actor, she has made a significant contribution to the South African theatre industry, both as a solo star and working in collaboration with her husband and partner, actor-producerAaron McIlroy. More recently, Lisa's natural ability to bring laughter into any situation has made her a motivational speaker of note. At women's conferences and events Lisa has shared the wisdom gained from her life story entitled - "I'm not okay, You're not okay and that's okay!" - a humorous look at overcoming life's disappointments.
