PRISCILLA QUEEN OF THE DESERT Comes To Slow Burn Theatre Company

PRISCILLA QUEEN OF THE DESERT Comes To Slow Burn Theatre Company

Slow Burn Theatre Company and the Broward Center for the Performing Arts present Priscilla Queen of the Desert in the Amaturo Theatre Thursday, June 13 through Sunday, June 30.

Based on the smash-hit movie The Adventures of Priscilla Queen of the Desert, the blockbuster musical adaptation is a heartwarming, uplifting adventure of three friends and performers in a Sydney-based performing trio who agree to take their show to the middle of the Australian outback. They hop aboard a battered old bus nicknamed Priscilla searching for love and friendship before finding more than they ever could have ever imagined.

The score of dance floor favorites includes "It's Raining Men," "I Will Survive," "Hot Stuff," "What's Love Got to Do With It" and "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun." This production features the costume designs that won a Tony Award® on Broadway.

Slow Burn Theatre Company Artistic Director Patrick Fitzwater will direct and choreograph the production. Fitzwater was honored with a Carbonell Award for Theatrical Excellence for his direction and choreography of last season's Memphis, which was one of four recent Carbonell Awards the company received.

This production stars Kyle Laing, George Pellegrino and Michael Ursua. Carla Bordonado, Nayomi Braaf, Rebeca Diaz, Johnbarry Green, Shelley Keelor, Brayden Labgold-Carroll and Resa Mishina round out the show's principal cast and are joined by a talented ensemble featuring Victoria Anderson, Jerel Brown, Joshua Conner, Jonathan Eisele, John Ettinger, James Giordano, Nicole Kinzel, Milton Mendez, Sahid Pabon, Elijah Word and Mason Zaroff.
