Legendary country star celebrated at Potato Shed

Wednesday, 13 September 2023

Drysdale’s Potato Shed will pay tribute to the exceptional life of country star Dolly Parton when renowned West End performer Kelly O’Brien takes centre stage at the region’s iconic performance space next month.

Acclaimed as one of the world’s best tribute performances, the Dolly Show pays homage to Dolly while brilliantly recreating the vitality, voice, style, and humour of the little lady from Tennessee.

The multi-award-winning Kelly O’Brien has taken the Dolly Show across the world, performing all the country legend’s beloved hits from Jolene to I Will Always Love You.

The one-night performance is already proving popular, with only theatre seating remaining for the unrivalled 5-star show that features a full band to accompany Ms O’Brien’s tribute.

I'm delighted to welcome the award-winning act given Kelly O’Brien’s reputation for recreating the magic of Dolly Parton. By all accounts Kelly O’Brien looks and sounds just like Dolly Parton, I expect that many people will really be able to relate to her performance. She has won the UK National Tribute Awards for four consecutive years and comes to our region with a reputation for putting on an outstanding and fun show. I’m excited that the Potato Shed is again able to host such a high-quality entertainer.

Adding the final touches to preparations before departing the UK, Ms O’Brien expressed her pleasure at bringing her acclaimed performance to the region.

I am so excited to be visiting Melbourne and Drysdale again for my Dolly Down Under tour. I really can't believe I finally get to bring the music, the life and the star Dolly Parton to the Potato Shed. I haven't been to Drysdale in years, this is going to be so much fun!

The Dolly Show will be performed on Friday 6 October.
