Helpmann award winner Michael Griffiths and acclaimed cabaret darling Amelia Ryan celebrate the songbooks of Aussie icons Olivia Newton-John and Peter Allen. From their humble small-town beginnings to world domination in sequins and jumpsuits, revisit all of their sing-a-long classics from Rio to Tenterfield, all the way to Xanadu and beyond. As camp as maracas and tender as Pete’s gift to Livvy ‘I Honestly Love You‘, there promises to be rollerskates, T-Birds, Pink Ladies, 80s jazzercise and an Oscar winning song to boot!

Michael won the Helpmann Award for Best Cabaret Performer in 2016 and was nominated for a Green Room Award for Best Supporting Actor for his performance as Bob Crewe in Jersey Boys. He has also appeared in Priscilla Queen Of The DesertWe Will Rock You! and Shout! His acclaimed one man cabaret shows In VogueSweet DreamsAdolescent and Cole have delighted critics and audiences across every cabaret festival in Australia and beyond to New York, London, Hong Kong and the Edinburgh Fringe.

Amelia is an award winning cabaret artist, writer and mentor.
