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 in sequins and jumpsuits, revisit all their singalong 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’, catch them in the Spiegeltent for the perfect evening of rollerskates, T-Birds, Pink Ladies, 80s jazzercise and an Oscar-winning song.

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.
