After its premiere at the 2018 festival, Adelaide Cabaret Festival are pleased to announce that Mark Holden’s The Greatest Show on Earth will tour regionally in South Australia as part of the Adelaide Cabaret Festival' Regional Roadshow.
Inspired by his family’s once famous Holden Brothers Travelling Circus, singer, songwriter and TV personality Mark Holden weaves his own colourful history into theirs.
Between classic family circus footage Holden walks a delicate tightrope, telling stories of his own soaring heights and crushing falls as he sings songs about Countdown and Australian Idol, through to working with the Temptations and David Hasselhoff.
A self-reflective ode to the resilience of family, music, tradition, humour and the virtues of hard work.
Written and performed by Mark Holden
Directed by Tom Healy
Produced by Andrew Barker
