Here are our five picks for weekend fun around Albury Wodonga and surrounds.
Performance – Prada’s Priscillas – An All Male Revue, Albury
Flanked by gorgeous men, Australia’s six-foot something songstress Prada Clutch and her ‘girls’, take you on a journey from where it all began with Les Girls in the 60’s, across the Aussie outback with Priscilla Queen of the Desert in the 90’s and into 2018 with a celebration of today’s music icons.
Jam-packed with dazzling feathers, wigs, head-pieces, costumes and performance, the audience will not forget this glittering drag spectacular, Friday 21 September.
