It's Drag! It's story time! It's drag story time! This is no ordinary story time - it's a magnificent theatrical extravaganza with picture books!
Award-winning queer comedy troupe, PO PO MO CO, bring their wacky performance art to the stage at Hares & Hyenas in three shows of family fun for people of all ages but especially the under 8s, with a more adult-oriented show in the evening.
Rainbow Families Victoria, PO PO MO CO and Hares & Hyenas are very proud to be presenting a beautiful new and timely twist on traditional storytime. With two matinee shows and an evening show for the really big kids, this is sure to be a very special show.
PO PO MO CO are Melbourne's only queer physical comedy troupe with an established brand of rollicking, clever, physical comedy. After making Woodford Folk Festival all warm, fuzzy and fierce with Drag Storytime in 2017, it's fitting that Midsumma Festival is next!
