    High heels, check. Lipstick, check. Glitter… get ready for the iconic jukebox musical as the award-winning Cambridge Operatic Society revive Priscilla Queen of the Desert into a riotous new production.

    Drag queens Mitzi Mitosis and Felicia hit the road in their campervan and drive across Australia to perform in Alice Springs. Along with their friend and transgender woman Bernadette, they encounter small-town bars, new friends and hate crime as they battle against the odds to make it in time for their opening number. Expect sing-along dance floor classics, eye-popping costumes and spectacular dance routines. Featuring an iconic musical score of pop hits such as Hot Stuff, It’s Raining Men and I Will Survive, this is a theatre trip guaranteed to have you dancing in the aisles!
