Priscilla, Queen of the Damned: Drag Queens vs. Vampires

If you are looking for an evening out, here's a fun show in Vancouver this month...

Priscilla, Queen of the Damned: Drag Queens vs. Vampires
June 16th (preview) to 19th at the Waterfront Theatre on Granville Island

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 secondsoprano section, a trio of cross-dressing crowd-pleasers turn hero and wage war.

It's our 20th production, so we've pulled out all the stops for Priscilla.

We've got fabulous costumes, beautiful princesses, spectacular dances, slapstick comedy, great drag performances, foreign accents, stairs, and beets.

And of course drag queens versus vampires ... you know, for kids!

The terrific score includes gems from such musicals as Legally Blonde, Shrek the Musical, and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.

To reserve tickets e-mail or call 778-322-7182. Tickets are $20, and $15 for seniors, students, and children (and $15 for the preview night).

All shows begin at 8:00pm.

The Waterfront Theatre is located at 1412 Cartwright St. on Granville Island, beside the Kid's Market; there is plenty of free parking after 7:00pm.
