PO PO MO CO: Once Upon a Drag Storytime

Queer comedy darlings PO PO MO CO bring you ‘Once Upon a Drag Storytime’. Known for their larger than life, outrageous adults only shows, PO PO MO CO are breaking new ground with a show entirely for kids.

Hosted by the troupe’s resident Drag Kings and lords of daggy dad dance - Mark, Gavin and Keith take the audience on a theatrical ride. This take on storytime includes puppetry, song, dance, lip syncs, character play and embodied storytelling.

It’s high energy, physical, visual comedy influenced by early nineties Play School, Lift Off, The Ferals, Sesame Street and Ru Paul’s Drag Race. Beneath the comedy is a show that celebrates individuality, rainbow families and reflects the ever-changing performativity of gender.

PO PO MO CO founder Kimberley Twiner says “This is so much more than your average storytime, it’s a sketch show, it’s a drag show and it’s a rainbow celebration for all.”

This very special show is partnered with Rainbow Families Victoria - our state’s largest network of LGBTIQA+ families, Hares and Hyenas Bookshop and was supported by Yarra City Council.

“PO PO MO CO are like unicorns, spreading their electrifying energy everywhere in
sight.” Theatrepeople
