It’s drag queens vs. vampires in “Priscilla, Queen of the Damned”!

This June, The Broadway Chorus takes a trip to Transylvania in the musical, Priscilla, Queen of the Damned! Transylvania’s only modern musical theatre group battles the undead in this uproarious mashup up of musicals and monsters. It takes a queen to fight a queen, so when the Vampire Queen next door abducts the second soprano section, a trio of cross-dressing crowd-pleasers turn hero and wage war. It’s the 20th production for The Broadway Chorus, and they’ve pulled out all the stops for Priscilla. There’s fabulous costumes, beautiful princesses, spectacular dances, slapstick comedy, great drag performances, foreign accents, stairs, and beets. The terrific score includes gems from such musicals as Legally BlondeShrek the Musical, and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. To reserve tickets e-mail ashley.lm@ubc.ca or call 778-322-7182.
