The Dolly Show - Direct from the UK!


As seen on BBC ONE and voted the U.K’s BEST Dolly Parton Impersonator, West End star – Kelly O’Brien is country legend Dolly Parton and she’s headed for Australia!

The Dolly Show, starring UK West End Star Kelly O’Brien is undeniably one of the BEST Dolly impersonators you will ever see and she’s returning to Australia in 2025 with her brand new show. Kelly and the band bring you all of Dolly’s hits such as 9 to 5, Jolene and I Will Always Love You. This show brilliantly captures the voice, verve, and voluptuousness of the little lady from Tennessee.

Kelly first began singing Country at the age of 14. Two years later she was crowned South Australian Country Vocalist of the Year and Best New Talent at the famous pan-Australian Gympie Muster country festival- securing Kelly her first recording contract. Kelly’s first national television appearance was on the talent show New Faces. TV performances then included spots on Good Morning Australia, Carols in the Domain, Cartoon Network, Living with Style and was a finalist in POPSTARS 2 on Australian National TV.

In 2002, Kelly flew to Germany to star in Starlight Express. This led to a record contract with Zyx music with the release of the hit single ‘Crucified’. TV includes Duran Duran’s video ‘Anniversary’, ‘How to Look Good Naked’, ‘X factor’ and ‘Even better than the real thing’ for the BBC. She has even sung privately for Russell Crowe and Michael Bublé.

In September 2011 Kelly finally met her idol, the real Dolly Parton herself. And in 2015 was used as a Dolly Parton look alike in a ‘Glastonbury’ television campaign for Green flag.

In 2019, she was invited to sing in Nashville with Dolly Parton’s band. And was the winner of the twitter campaign #jolenechallenge and chosen by Dolly Parton and Netflix.

She now tours her U.K theatre show THE DOLLY SHOW around the U.K and works regularly in the West End and is finally bringing her show down under. With stunning vocals, flawless comic timing, and a plethora of ‘Dollyisms’, this is a must-see show for any country music fan!
