Once Upon a Drag Storytime

Overview

A rainbow storytime meets comedy sketch show!

PO PO MO CO‘s resident drag blokes MarkKeith and Gavin bring to life three inclusive kids books through puppetry, song, dance, characters and lip-syncs. A totally fabulous celebration of gender and diverse families.

Guaranteed to be no ordinary story time, this is a magnificent theatrical extravaganza with picture books. High energy physical comedy and storytelling collide in a storytime that children and their adults will enjoy.

PO PO MO CO are an award-winning comedy troupe from Melbourne. They have been commended for making subversive physical theatre through a queer lens. They were recipients of the Melbourne Fringe Circus Oz Award; Adelaide Fringe Artist Fund; Adelaide Fringe Best Emerging Artist weekly award; nominated for Best Comedy Melbourne Fringe 2017 and recently finalists in the Australian LGBTQ Awards 2018.
