Globus Theatre are delighted to welcome the Lusty Mannequins to perform on our stage for the first time. All of the performers are phenomenal comics in their own right and together they have recently been wowing audiences in Toronto and across Europe; we are delighted that Bobcaygeon gets to have a laugh too. And of course our ever popular Girls Nite Out that we first conceptualized at Globus 12 years ago! Since then it has toured to huge theatres across Ontario and the Maritimes and we love having these extremely talented ladies revisit us where it all began - a homecoming as it were!"
