Segerstrom Center Announces PRISCILLA QUEEN OF THE DESERT THE MUSICAL Pre-Show Events
As Priscilla Queen of the Desert the Musical "Goes West" and journeys to Segerstrom Center for the Arts, audiences are invited to boogie on down to the Orchestra Level lobby of Segerstrom Hall one hour prior to each performance and indulge in fun events:
- A photo opportunity will be available that includes a cutout of Priscilla the bus along with fabulous fashionable accessories such as boas, hats and more.
- Patrons can proudly don their own personal name tag boasting their newfound drag name courtesy of the "Drag Name Generator." This consists of two jars filled with ping pong balls that have pre-written names and are sure to raise more than a few finely shaped eyebrows.
- The "Screen & Stage" exhibit will display costume sketches from the show, share interesting tidbits about the stage production, feature behind-the-scenes video, a trivia board that compares the musical and the movie plus cast photos with and without hair, make-up and costume.
Troika Entertainment and Nullarbor Productions Ltd. are pleased to present the first national tour of the international hit, Priscilla Queen of the Desert the Musical coming to Segerstrom Center for the Arts October 22 - 27. With more than 500 dazzling 2011 Tony Award-winning costumes, Priscilla Queen of the Desert the Musical features a hit parade of more than 20 dance-floor favorites including "It's Raining Men," "Finally" and "I Will Survive." Priscilla Queen of the Desert the Musical will star Wade McCollum (Tick/Mitzi), Scott Willis (Bernadette) and BRyan West (Adam/Felicia) as the trio of friends, on a road trip of a lifetime, who hop aboard a battered old bus searching for love and friendship in the middle of the Australian outback and end up finding more than they could ever have dreamed.
