Priscilla Queen of the Desert – BHMTS

The time has come for the Burgess Hill Musical Theatre Society to say goodbye to the Martlets Hall their home of 45 years!

What better way to mark the end of an era than to put on another SMASH HIT production! I say another because the last one I saw was fantastic! It was a production of Les Miserables which is my all-time favourite show and the junior BHMTS cast were excellent! You can read my full review HERE.

For 4 days only, the BHMTS adult cast will be performing their production of Priscilla Queen of the Desert at the Martlets Hall in Burgess Hill – you can purchase your tickets HERE! Hurry before it’s too late! Shows are Wednesday 20th June – Saturday 23rd June 2018 at 7.30pm (with a matinee on Saturday)

The show is based on the cult film and centres around the adventures of three drag artists who make their way across the Australian outback in a bus called Priscilla, all of who go through different emotional journeys as well as the physical one.  It is a comedy, full of laughs and jammed packed with 1970’s and 80’s dance classics like I Will survive, It’s Raining Men, Boogie Wonderland and MacArthur Park etc.  The costumes  and set are breath-taking  and it’s a real feel-good, extravaganza of a production which will mean that our poignant last show at the Martlets will go out with a bang!

Who are BHMTS?
Burgess Hill Musical Theatre Society are an amateur society dedicated to staging high quality productions of popular musicals for the local community! I came to know of them back in October last year when I stumbled across an advert for a youth show of Les Miserables.

BHMTS is a fantastic society full of people with a passion for music and acting! Adults working full-time jobs and still finding time to rehearse and put on fantastic shows! And school children following their dreams and building confidence.

You may be thinking where are the Burgess Hill Musical Theatre Society going to do their future productions? Unfortunately it’s still unknown however BHMTS will continue to perform and grace the public with their fantastic shows wherever it may be! Even more reason to get tickets to this super special show as it will be the last ever at the Martlets Hall!

The promo video for Priscilla Queen of the Desert can be seen HERE! Tickets are selling fast so make sure you are quick! You do not want to miss this one!

FYI – I have been warned that the humour in the show is for the adults! So 14+ please! We do not want to traumatise your children 🙂 I will of course be reviewing the show in due course to let you know what you missed!
