Adelaide Premiere | Australia
Self-proclaimed Australian National Treasure John O’Hara (School of Rock, Wicked, Priscilla - Queen of the Desert) returns to Adelaide in #VAL - A Campfire Kiki With Mother.
An honest and heartbreaking homage to the mothers and ‘mothers’ of our queer community, #VAL is a celebration of joy, love and acceptance that will leave a speck of glitter in your undies!
Set to the gorgeous, guilty-pleasure soundtrack of John's sexual awakening, #VAL is the ultimate mixtape of camp pop anthems, impossibly cool classics and outrageous power ballads. A riotous and naughty evening not to be missed.
It’s cabaret in its truest form; big, bold and a little bit loose!
Join us around the camp-fire – everyone is welcome.
Written and performed by John O'Hara
Direction by Shaun Rennie
Musical direction and arrangements by Andrew Kroenert
Accompaniment by Robert Tripolino

John O’Hara is one of those unique performers, who is not only a consummate singer, but also an engaging storyteller. In #VAL, O’Hara takes his audience on a heart-warming journey with just a little bit of ‘camp’ for good measure. Australian Arts Review
