The Athenaeum Masqueraders present Priscilla Queen of the Desert!
From the 2018 NODA SW District Achievement Award and Best Musical nominated group, who brought hit shows like 9 to 5, Legally Blonde and The Full Monty, The Athenaeum Masqueraders are bringing the drag queens to Warminster for the feel-good extravaganza Priscilla Queen of the Desert in October 2022.
ABOUT THE SHOW:
Based on the popular 1994 film, we follow the story of two drag queens and a transsexual who buy a run-down bus (they call it Priscilla) and set out on a road trip across the Australian Outback to perform a drag show at a faraway resort run by one of the drag queens, Tick’s ex-wife. However, Tick is hesitant to tell his friends, Bernadette (a former performing icon whose best days are behind her) and Adam (a rambunctious young troublemaker), his own personal reasons for taking the trip. Along their trip, they encounter an array of Australians, some who aren’t as accepting of their lifestyle while strengthening their own friendship.
This heart-warming, uplifting adventure where all involved find far more than they ever hoped for, is set to a parade of dancefloor favourites including “It’s Raining Men”, “I Will Survive”, “Hot Stuff,” “Boogie Wonderland,” “Go West,” “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun,” and “I Love The Nightlife”.
This wildly fresh and funny musical is a journey to the heart of FABULOUS!
