What a production! Superb staging, costumes and performance. Best ever in my forty years of live shows both in Australia and overseas. The Australian flavour amidst an adventure of three drag queens across the outback is unique and well worth seeing.

This seems to be my go to place for events as I love musicals and the ballet. Parking can be a nightmare so I suggest you pre-book as it is easy and hassle free on the night.
