Who is the Ukulele Dream Girl? explores the importance of coming together as a community and connecting with one another as well as nature. It was the audience response during the show’s debut season that inspired Theodoros to develop this special tour for Adelaide Fringe’s 60th Festival.

“There is so much going on in the world that it’s becoming increasingly common for people to feel isolated and to find it hard to connect,” says Theodoros. “Cabaret is an incredible vessel to help people to learn, grow and connect with one another. I love taking my shows to communities outside of the CBD and stimulating new conversations.”

The first two shows will have an extended running time featuring a warm up set from local ukulele players and an invitation for attendees to be part of a community jam afterwards. The tour begins on February 15th in Mount Barker in the Adelaide Hills in partnership with local arts organisation Ink Pot Arts to raise funds for their 'Arts for Wellbeing' Program.

On Friday the 21st of February, in Auburn in the Clare Valley, local musician and doctor Gerry Considine will open the show.

“For regions, it is especially important to connect however possible with music being just one way. Regional areas live and breathe by the connections between its residents who although live in small towns, can often be socially isolated.” says Considine.

As well as the extended shows in the Hills and Clare Valley Who is the Ukulele Dream Girl? will be playing at Mixed Creative in Port Adelaide Saturday 21st of February before a run of dates at Gluttony in the City. After each show Theodoros greets her audiences and sells unique merchandise: plants in quirky upcycled containers, to remind them of importance of connection to nature.

Through a mixture of original and cover music, poetry, storytelling, and maybe a singalong, Who is the Ukulele Dream Girl? Will leave audiences inspired to challenge the expectations the world has of us, but more so – the expectations we have of ourselves.
