Standing ovation after an hilarious evening
I've been a regular at the South Holland Centre in Spalding for around seven years now, reviewing both professional and amateur performances, but this was the first time I've witnessed a standing ovation... and boy, they deserved it.
For those who haven't seen the Australian 1994 cult classic movie, Priscilla is a rude, hilarious and touching romp of a show, featuring those toe tapping type of pop songs that make it hard to stay seated. And the sell-out crowd at Friday evening's show absolutely loved it!
The plot sees three Australian drag queens take their act on the road in a colourful bus, named Priscilla. Cross dressers Tick (AKA Mitzi Mitosis), Adam (Felicia Jollygoodfellow) and transexual Bernadette Bassenger travel across the Australian desert performing for enthusiastic crowds and homophobic locals.
