Once Upon a Drag Storytime
A rainbow storytime meets comedy sketch show!
PO PO MO CO‘s resident drag blokes Mark, Keith 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.
