About Lisa Bobbert

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 comedien 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 skilled as a singer-dancer, mimic and dramatic actor, Lisa 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-producer, Aaron 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.

Lisa's appearances over the past few years have been in her one-woman shows, Bobbert Uncut, directed by Caroline Smart, and Chronicles of a Car Guard, directed by Sue Monteregge. In 2003, Lisa won a Best Actress Award for the comedy 'Laughing Wild' staring Darren King and directed by Steven Stead. In 2006 she co-starred with Carol Trench as Eliza Doolittle in The Playhouse Company's production of My Fair Lady, directed by Steven Stead and designed by Greg King and Neil Stuart-Harris. Bobbert's performance in the runaway hit, Brutal Tunes, directed by Caroline Smart, set a new bench-mark in virtuoso comic exuberance.
