Drag theatre at its best
Thursday, 11th December, 2014
“Drags Aloud”, a show taking drag to the world, is coming back to the city thanks to the enthusiasm of local audiences.
Performer Amanda Moore said they were very excited about their show at the Musicians’ Club on Saturday night.
“We love Broken Hill, we have been to the city so many times we are almost locals,” she said. “People tend to love our shows, they are always sold out.
“I think Broken Hill has the same sense of humour that we put into the shows. We get big audiences, lots of laughs and cheers.”
Amanda said having a good audience was always an incentive to come back.
“We love the Musicians’ Club, it is a lovely place to perform,” she said.
The players in Drags Aloud have years of experience and an international reputation for excellence.
“People will be able to see their favourite performances as well as some new acts,” Amanda said. “It is very energetic and has a focus on a younger crowd.
“Overall audiences love it. If you haven’t seen it before come along.
“If you have a pre-formed idea about drag shows, come along anyway.”
Drags Aloud hold the record for the longest running drag show in the history of Melbourne’s drag industry. They have also performed in New York, England and Edinburgh.
“We take a theatre-based approach to drag,” Amanda said. “Come along and see the great make-up and costumes as well as have a laugh. You will love it.”
There will also be some Christmas songs on the evening.
Tickets cost $49 for dinner and a show. For more information call the Musicians’ Club on 8088 1777.
