Prada’s Priscillas is coming to the Gold Coast. This all male revue pays a special tribute to Australian entertainer, Carlotta and internationally renowned, Les Girls. Followed by gorgeous men, lead singer Prada Clutch and her girls, take you on a journey from where it all began with Les Girls in the sixties, across the Aussie outback with Priscilla Queen of the Desert in the nineties, and into present day with a celebration of today’s music icons.
The show is produced by Sydney Drag Queen, the birth place of Australian Drag. The performance is 90 minutes long, jam packed with dazzling feathers, wigs, costumes and entertainment.
Prada Clutch is one of Australia’s most in demand live singing drag queens, nominated for a ACE Award in 2014 for Rising Star, she has featured on shows across Australia and New Zealand. Prada Clutch draws her inspiration from Dusty Springfield, Patti LaBelle, Bette Midler and Cher. The show is creatively directed by Monique Kelly. Monique was a member of Les Girls from 1973 to 1997.
Monique is seen as a great asset to the show by the cast. Lead Singer, Prada Clutch, says “A lot of our dresses are covered in diamantes, and each one has either been hand stitched or glued on by Monique. With my Cher dress, she hand beaded every single bead, six months it took her to make that dress. It’s extraordinary”.
The show features a cast of seven and is choreographed by Stephen Clarke, who has worked with the likes of Kylie Minogue, Dannii Minogue, Cyndi Lauper and Diana Ross. Greatest hits from Priscilla Queen of the Desert will be performed, along with a few surprise hits from some of today’s icons and divas.
