The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert

Cult Classic
Saturday, July 22
Philanthropy Theatre

Grab your feather boas, your dancing shoes and get on the bus! Filled with love, laughter, and lots of glitter, Priscilla is an adventure-filled road comedy chronicling three friends as they traverse the picturesque Australian Outback in a dilapidated old bus named “Priscilla.” Traveling from Sydney to Alice Springs to perform their spectacular drag show, Tick/Mitzi (Hugo Weaving), Bernadette (Terence Stamp), and Adam (Guy Pearce) experience hilarious and touching encounters that challenge their perceptions and redefine the meaning of family. With humor and charm, the film explores themes of tolerance, identity, and the power of embracing one’s true self. The visually stunning film won Best Costume Design at the 67th Academy Awards and was acclaimed for its positive portrayal of and bringing LGBQT+ themes to a mainstream audience. This cult classic that will leave you inspired, entertained, and uplifted. — Keri Moe
