Helpmann award winner Michael Griffiths and acclaimed cabaret darling Amelia Ryan celebrate the songbooks of Aussie icons Olivia Newton-John and Peter Allen. From humble small-town beginnings to world domination, revisit all of their sing-a-long classics from Tenterfield to Rio, all the way to Xanadu and beyond!

 

As camp as maracas and as tender as Pete’s gift to Livvy ‘I Honestly Love You’, be dazzled by roller-skates, T-Birds, Pink Ladies, 80’s jazzercise and an Oscar winning song to boot. Michael and Amelia are dear friends, cabaret comrades and have appeared in every cabaret and fringe festival across Australia and beyond to London, New York and Edinburgh, where they received rave reviews and standing ovations. “Griffiths is extraordinary” (The Age). “Ryan is daft, funny and tremendously likeable” (The Scotsman).

AMELIA RYAN HAS GRACED THE STAGES OF NEW YORK, LONDON AND EDINBURGH WITH HER AWARD-WINNING SHOWS. SHE’S SASHAYED (AND STUMBLED) DOWN RED CARPETS, AND REGALED AUDIENCES WITH HER TALES OF DEBAUCHERY. NOW, SHE’S EMBARKING ON HER MOST CREATIVE PRODUCTION YET:

 

MOTHERHOOD

 

Her sequinned frocks are now spew-rags and her fun bags are functional but she’s no stranger to late nights, mess and the occasional vommie, so she’s got this one in the (nappy) bag. Right?*

*cue panic.

 

With her signature combination of heart and hilarity (and a 3 month old baby on the hip), she’ll take you from pregnancy to parenthood, and being up the duff to UP ALL NIGHT in this honest, hilarious and relatable foray in The Family Way.

Sassy, sexy and side-splittingly hilarious, a night with this multi-award winning cabaret siren is like a bender with your bestie.

 

From champagne-guzzling to green-juicing and box-gaps to feeling #blessed, she tackles the pressing (and totally first world) issues facing the modern woman in search of liberty…whatever that is? With prolific parodies, powerhouse vocals, and party games to make you blush, it’s the liberation celebration not to miss!

LATE N LOOSE Is a Festival only format, however, Amelia is available to host corporate events or shows

When a girl’s been blessed with a Gay Father and a Transgender Step-Mother, can add ‘Exotic Dancer’ to her resume and caused the spectacular demise of 5 automobiles (that’s right- FIVE), what’s left to do but get it all of her chest in a candid, yet hysterically delivered cabaret?

 

Dysfunction continues to follow this Dazzling Disaster around like the broken heel on her tatty stiletto. But the success of this award winning show proves that a life full of calamity makes for a damn entertaining story! Amelia takes her audience on an uninhibited ride, sharing her stories (and yes they’re all true!), with razor sharp humour and heart-warming honesty. Colouring well known songs with her own witty lyricism, Ryan pays homage to artists such as 4 Non Blondes, Belinda Carlisle and Rodgers & Hammerstein.
